Morning Graze, Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

Morning Graze
11x14 Oil on Canvas

I created this in the studio from a fuzzy photo I took while flying down the highway. For safety reasons I should mention I was a passenger and not driving. The dramatic sky and hint of the cows on the hillside were enough to spark my creative desire.

"Autumn Concerto" Fall Foliage Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

"Autumn Concerto" ©2018 Niki Gulley
16" x 20" textured oil painting 

After we finished teaching our New England Fall Foliage Art Trek, my husband, Scott Williams, and I stayed in beautiful Vermont for another week. Each day we ventured out to capture the beautiful fall foliage on canvas and film before its intensity faded.

I painted these colorful birch trees on location with the fall hues emerging in all of their glory. I loved this grove of trunks that twisted and turned, slicing bright white through the tangle of autumn leaves. Painted over several mornings, the air was crisp but the sun made for beautiful painting conditions that illuminated the subject and warmed the air. I hope you, too, can feel the thrill of being surrounded by nature on a perfect fall day.

SOLD • 12" x 9" textured oil painting 

Vermont Fall Foliage Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams
Day 3, Morning Location - Northfield, VT

Just Sold! On the third day of our New England Fall Foliage Art Trek that my husband and I led, we checked out of our lodging in Woodstock and headed to Northfield, home of 5 different covered bridges. We set up our easels near the first bridge, attracted to its bright red wood, surrounded by the gorgeous fall foliage. Meanwhile the photographers and the tourists visited the other 5 bridges to take photographs and explore, and meet back with us for lunch. What a fun and challenging way to spend a beautiful morning capturing its beauty.

Visiting Montepulciano and Tuscan Wineries with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

Montepulciano ©2018 Niki Gulley • 12" x 9" textured oil painting • SOLD
Day 2, Tuscany Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

Just sold! The next morning of our Tuscany Art Trek, we headed to the wine town of Montepulciano. Perched atop a giant hill with beautiful views of the surrounding vineyards below, we set up our easels at this breathtaking overlook. We had to work quickly to capture the morning light before it disappeared, while the photographers and the others explored ancient wine cellars, quiet back alleys and even got in a little shopping.

After lunch, we visited two wineries nearby to sample their Rossos, Vino Nobiles and the delicious sweet dessert wine, Vin Santo. Full from the local meats and cheeses and tasty red wines, we headed back to the villa for a quiet night of relaxing and soaking in the evening scenery.

12x9 oil on wood panel

I snagged more of my neighbor, Amy's sunflowers. I set up this still life in the sun. The heat from the sun will melt the flowers, so I worked fast.  Pre-mix paints and a palette knife help with the process.

Day 4:  Ireland ART TREK
Cliffs of Moher
Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshop with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

Just sold! On the fourth morning of our Ireland Art Trek, we explored the exotic Cliffs of Moher. Unfortunately, we received some of that Irish sunshine and only got in a quick glimpse before the sideways rain and wind got the best of us. Rather than let a few raindrops stop us, I put my easel in my lap in the van and created this view of the cliffs in between storms. It turned out to be a great day! That night we dined again on a delicious seafood dinner at a cozy garden restaurant nearby.
