New "Serpentine Drive" in Tuscany by Palette Knife Artist Niki Gulley

"Serpentine Drive" ©2019 Niki Gulley 
12" x 16" textured oil painting

Before we taught our Tuscany Foodie Trek, my husband and I spent a few days exploring the Tuscan countryside, painting and photographing the iconic scenery. "Serpentine Drive" illustrates one of the fascinating places we stopped with its mile long cypress lined drive. It felt like the trees snaked back and forth to infinity! Setting up my easel in late afternoon, I was able to capture the dramatic light as the setting sun illuminated the tops of the rolling hills and created long, dramatic shadows. Between the repetition of the vertical arbors and the horizontally flowing hills, the scene created a rhythmic harmony that added to the joy and serenity of the moment. 

If you're interested in joining us on one of upcoming Foodie or Art Treks, please let us know.

Visiting Montepulciano and Tuscan Wineries with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

"Montepulciano," Morning Light ©2018 Niki Gulley 
12" x 9" textured oil painting • SOLD

Just sold! During our Tuscany Foodie Trek, we headed to the wine town of Montepulciano. Perched atop a giant hill with beautiful views of the surrounding vineyards below, I set up my easel at this breathtaking overlook while the rest of our group visited wineries or took a cooking class with a local chef. 

After lunch, we visited a winery 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.

Contemporary Colorful Landscape,Wildlife, Deer Painting, Mixed Media, “Food is Provided” By Passionate Purposeful Painter Holly Hunter Berry


I am indeed a city girl having lived in major cities all of my life with the exception of a brief time in a "small Texas town" in my teen years. Most wildlife I've seen live in the zoo and Bambi is the name of any deer running around! So, when I am able to leave the city and explore nature I LOVE it and am like a little kid when surprised by the unexpected. Last year I had a wonderful time visiting with a friend of mine who lives in a small Texas town where deer are running around everywhere and that means on her property as well. Imagine the surprise when I watched her feed the regulars that come to her home for dinner daily and are even comfortable standing a few inches away! I don't want to ever lose the joy of watching the simple basic occurrences in life that are taken for granted as we age out of childhood. Something I thought about as I watched the deer eating was that it seemed like a lesson and I will try to explain....

 "Although in life there are uncertainties and unfair moments, "Food is Provided" in ways that can be unexpected and in ways never predicted. I painted this to remind me to expect the unexpected and to continue to be grateful for daily treasures. We are provided for, we just need to accept the gift!"

New "Ready for Harvest III" Grapevine Painting by Palette Knife Artist Niki Gulley

"Ready for Harvest III" ©2019 Niki Gulley
16" x 12" textured oil painting

In “Ready for Harvest III,” I set up my easel at the agriturismo we were staying at in Tuscany to capture this gorgeous view of the rolling hills and the grapevines planted on their property. The grapes were so plump and juicy, it looked like they could be harvested any day. I liked how the plantings framed the view in the distance, creating a sort of window pane in the foreground, with just a sliver of the farmhouse in the mid-ground. With some clouds rolling in, the sun created that unusual glow that I’ve only seen in Italy with gorgeous purple shadows and gold and pinks hitting the hillsides, giving them form. I hope you, too, are transported to this peaceful place surrounded by beauty, warmth and delicious home-grown food and wine.

"Ready for Harvest III" is hanging at Seaside Gallery in Pismo Beach, CA. If you are interested in purchasing or more details, please contact them at:

Arkansas Apple Blossoms



11 x 14 oil on linen panel
contact artist to purchase
Pat@Meyer.net

Painted this for the Arkansas Territory show.  The theme had to have something to do for Arkansas and since my main skills are painting flowers decided to go with the state flower the apple blossoms.  Love how they have loads of blooms on one branch with colors going in all directions.  This is the impression that these flowers said to me when painting them.
