New "Rhythmic Memories" Oil Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

"Rhythmic Memories" ©2018 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 12" x 16" textured oil painting

Just Sold! Painted on location, I wanted this piece to be very inviting and relaxing.  The tide laps against the shore so that you can hear the rhythmic, soothing music of the waves cresting and falling. Sunlight rakes across the wooden porch while you gently rock, enjoying the sounds and the view. 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.

E-mail Niki Gulley for more information.

Journal Entry, Greece..Watercolor..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews

Today’s journal entry is of the Greek Islands. I took a cruise around the islands with my dearest artist pals a few years ago, great fun!

This image is from the island of Myconos, an island I had been to before, but still remains a favorite of mine.

I used my larger 8” x 10” Stillman Birn journal for this one.

Journal Entry Southwest France..Watercolor..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews

This journal entry is of  Saint Cirq Lapopie while I was teaching at Le Vieux Couvent. A fascinating medieval cliffside village 300 feet above the River Lot.

We had a wonderful day trip to this village, shopping and meandering through the winding little streets, just full of charming stores and restaurants.

I did not manage to paint there, but did take lots of photos which is where this study came from.

I will be teaching again at Le Vieux Couvent in July 2019.

It’s a wonderful place to stay and expose yourself to the peace and charm of the Southwest France region.

Croatia / Slovenia Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

"Laundry Day," Croatia ©2018 Niki Gulley
6" x 8" oil painting

Slovenia and Croatia Art Trek - Day 3
Led by Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

On the third day of our Slovenia / Croatia Art Trek, my husband (Scott Williams) led the photographers and tourists back to the amazing waterfall park to explore some more. Since it is challenging to paint in there with the narrow walkways and many tourists in the afternoon, we stayed to paint at our b & b. I loved the laundry drying on the line in their backyard with the unusual Croatia roofline in the distance.

That evening, we all gathered together for another delicious Croatian meal.

Portofino Drift..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews

Finally finished this one.. Pastel on red Sennelier paper.

I am a part of a pastel presentation for Austin Pastel Society on Sunday 28th October  (approx. 3.30-4.30 pm) at Precision Camera in Austin. Please come along if you want to see a fun demonstration by 5 artists.

You would be most welcome. We have a silent auction at the end of each work, and the money raised goes into our scholarship fund.

This presentation is called a PAINT AROUND where all five artists begin on their own artwork for first ten minutes, then it is passed around to the next artist for them to do another ten minutes pastelling  on it.
 The demo lasts one hour with the artwork ending up in front of the original artist, for them to 'tweak' what the other artists have done to their work.

Great fun!

The above pastel painting is me getting in readiness for this presentation.

This image measures 16" x 20" unframed

Palette Knife Red Roses oil painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

"Rhapsody in Bloom" ©2018 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 12" x 12" textured oil painting on canvas 

Just sold! I painted these roses from the still life with extremely thick paint and palette knife. The resulting canvas is loaded with texture, color and energy! I've painted it on 1 and 1/2 inch deep stretcher bars, with the image continuing around the edges so that it can be hung as is frameless for a contemporary look. 

This floral looks great hung alone to brighten up a little spot, or in a grouping with some of my other contemporary flower paintings. Hang them horizontally, vertically, on a diagonal or stacked.

E-mail Niki Gulley for more information on this piece or to find out about complimentary companion paintings.
