Small Paintings, Colorful Contemporary Landscape Painting, Trees, Abstract Landscape, Tree, Daily Painter, “After The Fog Clears“ by Passionate Purposeful Painter Holly Hunter Berry




"After The Fog Clears" is what I think to myself at times when there is just too much going on and I need to slow down and maybe even stop for a moment. This painting was inspired by a scene in my neighborhood that I saw after the morning fog was slowing clearing out. I found myself restless as I stopped and waited to see a clearer view of my surroundings. I later realized that the view I experienced during the time spent waiting was beautiful in it's serenity and deserved to be captured. I tried to express the calm by using a narrow range of colors (wasn't easy as I LOVE to use LOTS of color!) . I need to remember that the slow, foggy chapters of my life story have a purpose and it is for my good no matter how unclear at the time. Maybe painting this scene will help me remember? What has your experience been as you waited for the fog to clear in your life? This photo shows it hanging as it comes, in a light brown wooden frame. It is hanging in a grouping of several of my other small paintings available online as well.

Just Sold! On the 7th day of Ireland Art Trek, we visited the magnificent Muckross House and Gardens, a mansion built in the 1800s. With acres of woodland, gardens and lakeside views, the photographers and tourists explored while us painters set up our easels in front of the manor house and colorful formal gardens.

Painting Ireland's Dingle Peninsula with Niki Gulley

"Jagged Edges" ©2019 Niki Gulley
7" x 5" textured oil painting

After teaching our Ireland Art Trek, my husband and I stayed a couple of extra days on the Dingle Peninsula on the west coast of Ireland. That day I chose to pull in tight on my composition of these jagged rocks and the waves crashing against them. Having fun creating the uneven textures with the palette knife, I hope you can feel the sound of the water rises and falling as it rushes against the cliffs.

New "Liquid Rush II" Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

"Liquid Rush II" ©2019 Niki Gulley
9" x 12” textured oil painting

For our next Iceland adventure, you guessed it - we visited another waterfall! Today the breeze was picking up again, so we aimed the car towards the falls and I painted from the front seat while the wind rocked our car and Scott to sleep. Meanwhile, I set out to capture the gorgeous falls with all of their power and glory. Using diagonal strokes again to capture the energy and strength of the cascades, I also wanted to show the mountains they were tumbling over and a sliver of the river in the distance as the water flowed onward. Dramatic clouds drift by, adding to the rhythm and emotion of this special place.

New "Liquid Rush" Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

"Liquid Rush" ©2019 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 9" x 12” textured oil painting

Just Sold! My husband and I both LOVE waterfalls, which turned out to be one of our favorite things about Iceland – there was a stunning waterfall everywhere we went. Today I set up my easel to capture the energy and flow of the cascades while showing a hint of the mountainous scenery surrounding the landscape. Creating strokes in diagonal sweeping shapes to enhance that feeling of movement and rhythm, I hope you, too, can hear the flowing water's music and feel the gentle spray from its mist.

New "Frozen Islands" Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

"Frozen Islands" ©2019 Niki Gulley
9" x 12” textured oil painting

One of the highlights of our Iceland trip was to visit the Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon. Completely otherworldly, large chunks of blue ice break and float along the water's surface while the massive glacier looms in the distance. My favorite color being aqua, I had to capture all of the gorgeous blues in the water and the ice. While a little overcast, the sun was able to peak through the clouds and create a dreamlike sunset casting a golden tint across the lagoon. A magical moment!
