New "Flowing into Spring" Palette Knife Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

"Flowing into Spring" ©2017 Niki Gulley
24" x 12" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas, Dallas Arboretum

I painted this scene from the Dallas Arboretum on location a few weeks ago when the weather was beautiful and the spring buds were in full bloom. I was attracted to this Azalea trail with the vivid fuchsia blossoms tucked away in this cool, shady, peaceful garden. Choosing a vertical panoramic format leads your eye from the azaleas to wander up the trail towards the light and the beautiful dogwood tree in the distance, all while lifting your spirits.

New "Springtime in Tuscany" Palette Knife Poppy Painting by Niki Gulley

"Springtime in Tuscany" ©2017 Niki Gulley
24" x 12" textured oil painting

I wanted this piece to be uplifting and full of color and energy. Set beneath a colorful sky on a beautiful day in springtime with the poppies and wildflowers in full bloom, I hope all of your cares drift away while gazing into this cheerful scene.

In this vertical wildflower series, I've framed the paintings in espresso floater frames so that you can still see the textured oil paint continuing around the edges of the canvas. These poppies look great hung alone or in a grouping, too!

New "Visions of Azaleas" Palette Knife Oil Painting by Niki Gulley

"Visions of Azaleas" ©2017 Niki Gulley
24" x 12" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

Painted on location, I set up my easel in front of these prolific azalea bushes along Turtle Creek near my home. The vibrant pinks and fuchsia were so full of life set against the cool green leaves, that I wanted to capture not only that vivid spring color but also the elegant sycamore tree in the distance with its speckled white bark.  Contrasting the height of the vertical tree against the horizontal blooms, I chose this vertical panoramic canvas, and repeating shapes throughout creates a harmony to the overall scene. Painted with palette knife and lots of texture, I hope you can feel the beauty and energy of a perfect spring day.

"Vertical Aromas" Palette Knife Lavender Field Painting by Niki Gulley

"Vertical Aromas" ©2017 Niki Gulley
24" x 12" textured mixed media painting on wrap around canvas

The lavender fields in Provence are incredible – perfectly manicured rows and rows of an explosion of violet as far as the eye can see. I wanted to try something different in this painting, arranging the purple waves vertically to draw your eye up to the stone farmhouse in the distance. Meanwhile wispy clouds drift by and perspective lines all converge, leading you to this joyful, peaceful spot. I hope you can smell the amazing aromas and  feel your spirits lifted while gazing into this scene!

I Stand Alone Poppy, by Melissa A. Torres, 8x8 oil on canvas


I finally was able to use my wonderful Christmas gift, a Nikon camera, to take photos of something other than my paintings this week. On a short trip to Wildseed Farms in Fredericksburg, TX, I took lots of photos of beautiful poppies including this one.  What a great trip it was, spending 3 days in a workshop by Nancy Medina, with the evenings free to explore the wineries and restaurants of this beautiful little town which I love so much. It was nice to get out of San Antonio for a few days of painting and R&R.

This was the first painting on my own in oils after attending the workshop. It was interesting to use elements I learned at the workshop while applying them to my own style of painting. I made a conscious decision not to spend too much time on this one and not use as much detail as I normally do. I have already noticed a change in how I hold my brush.

New "Kid's Perspective" Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

"Kid's Perspective" ©2017 Niki Gulley
textured oil painting on canvas • 20" x 30"

In "Kid's Perspective" I wanted you to feel that child-like wonder of staring up in into the treetops and heavens above. Choosing uplifting golds and soft shades of tangerine contrasted against a blue sky with gentle clouds drifting by, I've arranged the aspens in a circular pattern to give you a sense of laying on the ground, surrounded by the forest and to direct your eye to the focal point. Utilizing thick, curving paint strokes adds to that joyful, playful feeling of hope and discovery.
