New "Cultivating Aromas" Palette Knife Lavender Painting by Niki Gulley

“Cultivating Aromas” ©2017 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 20” x 30” acrylic on canvas

Just sold! The lavender fields in Provence are incredible – perfectly manicured rows and rows of an explosion of violet as far as the eye can see. Rippling purple rows draw your eye to the lone stone farmhouse in the distance while clouds drift by also in rhythmic waves, both creating a flowing harmony. Perspective lines converge, leading you to this joyful spot and I hope you can smell the amazing aromas and feel your spirits lifted while gazing into this scene!

Palette Knife Iris Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

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

Painted on location at Lee Park in Dallas, I loved how the irises signaled that spring was in full bloom. Standing tall, anchoring this corner of the creek these purple blooms lead your eye up through the canvas, along the water's edge to the stone bridge in the distance. The soft light adds to the peacefulness of this tranquil spot, and I hope all of your cares are transported away while lifting your spirits.

Just Turning..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews

JUST TURNING is a scene from the area of Hamilton Pool here in Texas, the river is the Pedernales.


I love this area, so full of things to paint. I used Photoshop to embellish and vamp up my colors with this one, something I do a fair bit..


This image is done on a mauve colored Canson TOUCH paper, not one of my favorites I have to admit, just not enough 'tooth' to it for my style of painting.




Image size is 22" x 28" unframed
$525 plus S/H

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

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

Just Sold! 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!

New 12" x 12" Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

"Autumn Hues II" ©2016 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 12" x 12" oil on canvas

Just Sold!  I painted these autumn aspen trees with palette knife and extremely thick paint. I love how the chunky paint adds to the texture of the bark and the movement in the leaves. The painting continues around the edges of the wrap around canvas for a sculptural-like frameless piece of art.

These aspens and birches look great hung alone to brighten up a little spot, or in a grouping with some of my other 12x12 trees. Hang them horizontally, vertically, on a diagonal or stacked. If interested in seeing companion pieces, please e-mail Niki Gulley for options.

New "Into the Woods" Palette Knife Fall Foliage oil painting by Niki Gulley


“Into the Woods" ©2016 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 9" x 12"" textured oil painting

Just Sold!  I painted "Into the Woods" on location when we visited New England last fall during the height of fall foliage. The kaleidoscope of autumn colors was ablaze, and I was attracted to the dappled light sneaking through small gaps in the forested canopy, illuminating the winding path. Painted with palette knife and thick oil paint, this landscape is filled with color, movement and energy!

"Following the Leader" ©2017 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 24" x 12" textured oil painting on canvas

Just Sold! I'm excited that this painting just won first place at the Artists of Texas H2O show held in Corpus Christi!

Gold, white, tangerine – quicksilver Koi slice through silent waters. Playful, darting fish follow each other up through the composition, while cool colors float and ripple across the painting forming tranquil patterns.  A happy threesome glides by, lifting your spirits as you gaze into this vertical panorama while thick strokes of paint created with palette knife add dimension and movement.

"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.

Twists and Turns Near Johnson City..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews




I just finished this pastel..

The surface is the all cotton sanded Pastel Premier paper.. I am liking this surface a lot especially for my landscapes.

The scene is mostly for memory, and is very near Johnson City on the way to Fredericksburg here in Texas.

I pass it a lot in the car, never stopping to take a photo, but it always gets my attention on the highway. That zig zag line again, can't resist!

The colors are very embellished to suit my mood, and I am sure with the end of summer, the river is nowhere near as full as this is, but I am an artist, what can I say?

This image is 12" x 16" unframed

Two Steppin'..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews























I love chickens, they are so comical and very proud, at least the roosters. Why would'nt they though, when you see those colors in their feathers, wonderful.



I went to Austin zoo to get these photos, made a composit from which to work.



I had a nice piece of rich burgandy suede matboard, and thought the oranges would look great on it.



What do you think?
