New "Song of the Woods" Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

"Song of the Woods"  ©2015 Niki Gulley
30" x 40" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

Shimmering colors of autumn: Aspen and Oak trees quiver, their light graceful leaves tremble and quake, silver and gold, scarlet and tangerine, with each light breeze. There is the quiet energy of change coming and vibrant color charges the woods. Crisp fall mountain air, a band of slender trunks cut bright strokes of white against a dazzling kaleidoscope of colors. Staccato strokes and shimmering hues add to the feeling of change in the air and suggest the breeze whistling through the foliage.

"Song of the Woods" along with a few of my textured oils will be on display at Davis and Company Fine Art Gallery north of Houston, TX. If you'd like more details, please follow the link below.

Original Aspen Tree Paintings On Canvas

atlanta art commission
©1990-2015 Aspen Tree Painting By Jill Saur, all rights reserved

This morning I was reminiscing how positively wonderful my patrons are. My painting, "Rhapsody For You," was purchased to hang in a gorgeous home, over an exquisite fireplace.  My client showed the utmost respect and genuine interest in selecting her painting.  It was rewarding to see her so happy with my work!

This is me with the painting to show the scale of my larger work.  Funny thing, I'm working on an even larger painting right now, and I caught myself thinking, "This canvas just isn't big enough!"  My client wrote the following words describing her purchase:

"I love my painting, 'Rhapsody For You', that I purchased for my home; it has been a fabulous addition!  The painting is very colorful and emotional.  Thank you for this Jill!  Every time I look at the painting, I can feel the joy that you put into the artwork.  I especially like how the painting looks at night, when it seems to glow.  I have the painting above my fireplace, and smile every time I see it!" - Bridgette K. - Roswell GA

If you're looking for a painting, even an over-sized one, for that special place in your home or business, I paint commissions.  Please read about it on my website.  CLICK HERE

I'VE GOT THE BLUES 



 Really, I've got the blues, but it's all good, no it's great!

Captivated by the life and work of Van Gogh, I've been experimenting with his color palette.  It's not too far off from the palette I've been painting with, but it's more pure and the blues are making me smile.  


This 36"x36" acrylic palette knife painting is one of my new works.  There isn't one brushstroke on it!  All the paint was applied with three different palette knives.  It was a bit time consuming but the result is well worth it.  It positively glows with brilliant hues. 

This piece is listed on my website for $5,500.  It's possible that I'll be making a hand-embellished giclee available in the near future.  Purchasing is easy.  If you have any hesitation purchasing a work of art over the internet, I hope you'll read what my happy patrons have to say about buying artwork from me.  CLICK HERE
Hope your day is filled with color and lots of blue! - Jill Saur

New Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

"Intertwining Beauty" ©2015 Niki Gulley
36" x 60" textured oil on canvas


Intertwining Beauty was inspired by a recent trip to the Sangre de Cristo mountains. The aspen forest was so dense and beautiful. I loved the pops of vibrant fall colors peeking through the tall, tangled, web of white knobby trunks. Ruby reds grab your attention while staccato strokes of emerald, amethyst and topaz lead your eye around the canvas. I hope you can feel the energy found in nature and its power to invigorate your spirit.

I painted these aspen trees 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.

"Heightened Awareness" Palette Knife Aspen Treetop Painting by Niki Gulley

"Heightened Awareness” ©2015 Niki Gulley
48” x 30” textured mixed media on canvas

In this painting I wanted you to feel that child-like wonder of staring up in into the treetops and the heavens above. Choosing vibrant, cheerful yellows contrasted against a vivid blue sky and arranging the aspens in a circular pattern heightened by thick, curving paint strokes, both add to that joyful, playful feeling of hope and discovery.

New "Golden Aura II" Palette Knife Birch Painting by Niki Gulley

"Golden Aura II" ©2015 Niki Gulley
36" x 48" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

Painted with extremely thick oil paint and palette knives so that this canvas is loaded with texture and bursting with color, flickering autumn leaves seem to almost dance in a gentle breeze. I wanted this scene to be filled with movement and energy, so I incorporated a lot of diagonal and curving shapes in the design to suggest that feeling. While combining short staccato strokes along with long sweeping passes with my palette knives also increase that sense of motion. I hope you, too, can feel the excitement of walking through the woods on a beautiful fall day, letting your cares slip away and your spirit being invigorated.

"Reaching for the Heavens" Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

“Reaching for the Heavens” ©2015 Niki Gulley
48" x 36” textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

In this painting, I wanted you to you to experience the amusement of looking up into the treetops – just like you did when you were a kid. Lying on the ground, not a care in the world, you gaze in wonderment as the clouds drift by. Choosing warm yellows and reds while utilizing thick chunky staccato strokes, add to that childlike whimsy and I hope you are transported back to a happy, carefree time and place.

"Harmonic Hues" - Aspen Tree oil painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley


"Harmonic Hues" ©2015 Niki Gulley
36" x 36" oil on canvas

I love painting aspen trees and I usually work with a more primary color palette, but in this painting, I wanted to convey a quieter, more peaceful mood. Opting for calming moss greens, soft golds and hints of lavender, with some pops of red and burgundy, Harmonic Hues reminds me of the serenity I feel while walking through the forest on a cool autumn day, being totally immersed in nature, not a care in the world. I hope you are transported, too!

"Fire and Gold" - Textured Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

"Fire and Gold" ©2015 Niki Gulley
textured oil on canvas • 36" x 48"

I love the first signs of fall – the crisp feel in the air, the crunching of leaves underfoot, the beautiful autumn colors, and being totally immersed in nature in the middle of a forest without a care in the world. In Fire and Gold I wanted to recreate that joyful feeling, choosing warm reds and yellows of autumn and using energetic strokes with my paint to heighten that mood. Building up first thin transparent layers and then thick textured layers of oil paint also add to a certain glow and magic in the final piece.
