"Tranquil Morning" from Santorini, Greece by Niki Gulley

Day 5, Sunrise in Oia - Greece Art Trek
8" x 10" oil painting by Niki Gulley

The next morning of our Greece Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshop, the photographers got up early to shoot sunrise and I decided to join them. Town was so peaceful and the views were incredible. I chose this strategic location to capture the iconic blue domes over the caldera. It was cloudier this morning which created a peaceful feeling with softer sunrise colors that spread across the sky. I hope you, too, can feel the beauty and tranquility of this special spot.

Enjoying a drink that afternoon at our gorgeous pool view.

"Pedestal to the Sky" from Athens Greece by Niki Gulley

Day 1, Greece Art Trek:  The Acropolis, Athens
9" x 12" oil painting by Niki Gulley

On the first full day of our plein air painting and photography workshop in Greece, we visited the Acropolis in Athens along with several other ancient sites. It was truly awe inspiring to see a part of history from the fifth century BC and to imagine what life must have been like as democracy was beginning. In the afternoon, the painters set up their easels on top of the beautiful balcony at our hotel to paint this beautiful view of the Parthenon while the photographers continued touring the city. In this oil painting, I wanted to capture a sense of scale with the Acropolis, and suggest how it rises above the city on this massive mound, towering majestically over the city, kissed by the clouds above.

Breakfast from the terrace of our hotel. What a view of the Acropolis!

Colorful Contemporary Landscape Painting, Trees, Pathway, Abstract Landscape, Tree, “Open to Possibilities“ by Passionate Purposeful Painter Holly Hunter Berry



Road trip! Although I am not at all interested in driving on the freeways here in Houston, I occasionally entertain the idea of leaving the city and exploring the country by driving, not flying. Open skies, winding roads through mountains, breathtaking fields of color all seem like the exact prescription needed for recharging and inspiration. I am guilty of sticking to a familiar routine but I want to push myself to explore... to trust the road ahead to lead to new adventures. There is so much to see and experience...I hope to never stop being curious and "open to possibilities"!

24"x24"x2" Mixed Media on Canvas/Available

Not Your Typical Flowers by artist Pat Meyer



16 x 20 oil on linen panel
contact artist to purchase
Pat@Meyer.net


During the winter months, it is hard to find different stunning flowers.  The local florist was so kind as to provide stunning unusual flowers.  The Big Yellow flower I don't know the name but sure wanted to be the star of this painting.  Balance it out with the red, black and white flower.  It gives this painting an exotic feel.  Like in life we have other flowers that are typical but still lovely.

"Ross Castle" Oil Painting from Ireland by Niki Gulley

"Ross Castle" ©2020 Niki Gulley
9" x 12" textured oil painting

Day 7:  Ireland ART TREK
Afternoon location: Ross Castle, Killarney
Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshop with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

On the last afternoon of our Ireland Art Trek, we visited Ross Castle. While the photographers explored the castle and grounds, the painters set up their easels to capture this majestic view of the castle and lake. Although we didn't have enough time to finish, you can get idea of the overall scene and the fast moving clouds with a tiny patch of blue sky poking through. Afterwards, we enjoyed a peaceful boat tour of the lake and came back to our home base, to share our photos and paintings of our trip. What a great way to end a wonderful Art Trek with new friends!

Painting at Ross Castle.

Finishing up our Art Trek by sharing our paintings and photographs from the trip.
