"Reflective Radiance" textured oil painting of Monet's Garden by Niki Gulley

SOLD • "Reflective Radiance" ©2018 Niki Gulley
Two 48" x 18" canvases with one 48" x 30" canvas in the middle to form a 48" x 66" triptych
Textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

Just Sold! I decided it would be a fun challenge to create an extremely large painting, and I wanted the final piece to be very uplifting, colorful and full of energy. Opting for warm colors and working with extremely thick paint and palette knives, I chose this lily pond reference from our visit to Monet's Gardens in Giverny, France. The grounds were breathtaking and I could actually see his paintings come to life. I was drawn to the energetic flow and yet calming serenity in this view, and I positioned the water lilies and my paint strokes in a curving pattern to add to that mood. The morning light peeking through the distant foliage added to a sense of mystery and promise that I wanted to capture in paint, and share with you that feeling of hope.

Sky Delight
11x14 oil on wood panel

The morning sunrise brings me joy. I am so grateful to witness one like this.  I've switched things up and painted this on a wood panel. It' s so different for me, so it made the process fun. I built the texture and color using a palette knife.

New "Rhythmic Waters" Palette Knife Seashore painting by Niki Gulley

"Rhythmic Waters" ©2018 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 9" x 12" textured oil painting

Just sold! I wanted this painting to be about the power of the ocean to lift your spirits. Painting this piece on location, I was hoping you could feel the ocean tides lapping on the shore and hear the rhythmic, soothing sounds of the waves cresting and falling like I was experiencing while painting it. Whenever I visit the seashore I always feel rejuvenated, and I hope I’ve translated that onto the canvas for you to experience it, too.

New "Autumn Cascades" Palette Knife Aspen Painting by Niki Gulley

“Autumn Cascades” ©2018 Niki Gulley
12” x 24” textured oil on canvas

Water pounds its way down the falls: cascading, rushing, charging into the riverbed -- flowing over rocks, swiftly moving forward. Untamed, the surge finds its way over, under, around the boulder-strewn river. Tumbling waters drive up mists above the falls, the rhythmic sounds create a soothing harmony below, while autumn colors glow as we peer through the tangle of textured Aspen trees.

If you have any questions about Autumn Cascades or my palette knife Aspen tree paintings, please e-mail Niki Gulley.

It lives up to its reputation, perched atop lush formal gardens with a gorgeous scenic overlook of the water. After such beautiful views of the lake that day, we treated ourselves to an elegant dinner with another breathtaking panorama of Lake Como below.

I created this from a couple of field studies and a photos from El Tesoro.  El Tesoro is a camp for kids in the Granbury Area. A lovely river runs through it with colorful views.  A group of plein air painters were granted access.  We hung out, painted and enjoyed the solitude of this camp.

This was created as a color study for a larger piece.  I like to start small and work out color and design before tackling a big canvas.  The location for the inspiration is a farm house in Italy. It was on a drive with Scott Williams and Niki Gulley with Art Treks.  Our first trip with this talented couple.
