"Embrace" textured birch oil painting by Niki Gulley

"Embrace" ©2015 Niki Gulley
textured oil painting • 36" x 36" on wrap around canvas

I like to play with blurring the lines between realism and abstraction so that some things are left up to the viewer’s imagination. In the case of “Embrace,” I chose this unusual, asymmetrical heart-shaped composition and teased your eye with foreground and background emerging and disappearing to create a more abstract scene. Choosing fiery reds contrasted against turquoise blues cause the colors to dance and vibrate. While diagonal strokes and a circular composition combined with the vibrant hues, create a sense of energy, movement and harmony. Using all of these elements, I wanted to create an uplifting, whimsical, passionate painting filled with youthful hope and discovery.


"Embrace" is available through the Good Art Company Gallery in Fredericksburg, TX (http://www.goodartcompany.com/gac/.)

"Natural Textures" Abstracted Aspen Tree palette knife painting by Niki Gulley

"Natural Textures III" ©2015 Niki Gulley
24" x 36" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

In this painting I wanted the focus to be on texture. Usually I paint with a lot of color, but I opted to use a limited palette on this piece to really concentrate on the peeling bark of the aspen trees. Bordering on the edge of abstraction and the cusp of realism, Natural Textures is loaded with layers and layers of paint, built up with thin glazes and then palette knife to create extreme dimension. Choosing to come in extremely close on the subject, I played around with various strokes and paint thicknesses to add depth and energy. At the end, I had to throw in a few of my signature strokes of color – a splash of gold, some touches of lavender, and just a dab of fire-engine red for added excitement and unexpected color twists. 


"Natural Textures" is available through the Good Art Company Gallery in Fredericksburg, TX (http://www.goodartcompany.com/gac/.)

Contemporary Birch Tree Palette Knife Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

"Embracing the Moment" ©2015 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 24" x 48" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas


I wanted this painting to be about the power and energy in nature to invigorate your spirit, so I chose to use warm vivid colors and thick staccato strokes to add to that feeling. I placed the fall foliage in diagonal sweeping shapes to create a sense of movement, so that you can feel the wind gently rustling the leaves and causing them to dance on a beautiful fall day.

Just sold through the Good Art Company Gallery in Fredericksburg, TX (http://www.goodartcompany.com/gac/.)

Contemporary Abstract Aspen Tree Painting "Aspen Grove II" by Colorado Abstract Artist Candace French


 Playful experimentation inspired this work. I used lots of layers, revealing and concealing the  aspen. You may see the feathering of colors before the aspen come into view. I love aspen  because they have such a strong root system in how they support one another while growing.

 This is an acrylic painting on 1.5 inch deep gallery wrap canvas. The edges are painted and it is  ready to hang. It is signed on the front and back and varnished with a matte finish. Free local  delivery in the Denver Metro area. Please contact me for shipping information to all other  destinations.

New "Autumn Hues" Palette Knife Aspen Painting by Niki Gulley

"Autumn Hues" ©2014 Niki Gulley

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. 

This fall forest looks great hung alone to brighten up a little spot, or in a grouping with some of my other seasonal aspen trees. Hang them horizontally, vertically, on a diagonal or stacked. Take a look at nikigulley.com/the-art/textured-oils/ to find complimentary companion pieces.

Niki Gulley is please to announce the opening of her new studio!!

I am super excited to announce the opening of my new studio. After years of working in a confined space, I now have more than enough room to work on several large paintings at a time, to teach my classes and display my artwork. It's been a dream come true!

The studio is located just a mile south of my previous space, now in the White Rock Lake area.  The room has plenty of natural light, ventilation and easels. You can choose to paint standing or sitting down, whichever you prefer.  My goal is to make my students as comfortable as possible so they can really express themselves in their painting.


Please visit my website for more information about upcoming classes and Art Treks.  I'd love to have you in my next class. Or, drop me an e-mail if you'd like to view some of my most recent paintings and you're in the DFW area.

Blowing In The Wind by Kay Wyne


Blowing In The Wind
30" x 40" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Aspens - Palette Knife Painting
My painting for the paint challenge was a scraper.  Just didn't make the cut, so I am posting one of my contemporary aspen paintings.  I usually choose a square or vertical format for my aspens, but Blowing In The Wind is on a heavy duty (thick and chunky) horizontal stretcher bars.  I used bold colors, brushes and the palette knife.  The trees are thick and textured, as are the leaves that are falling.  This painting is for sale....contact Kay for purchasing information.  It is ready for a new home!  Thanks, Kay

New "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.

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.
