These two pieces are each 20"x24" and are framed in a black wood frame. They are meant to hang side by side.  They are called a Diptych meaning they can be hung side by side or separate. They are done with a palette knife and have textures. Bright reds and greens with a neutral background. They are signed and ready for a new home.

Indian Paintbrush Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley - Just Sold!

"Spring Forth II," Texas Hill Country ©2015 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 24" x 24"" textured oil painting on gallery wrap canvas

Just sold through the goodartcompany.com/gac/I wanted this Texas wildflower painting to be filled with color and joy! Using thick oil paint and palette knives, I arranged the bluebonnets and winecups diagnonally to create an energy and movement, keeping your eye traveling from blossom to blossom. Choosing a vivid gold background to add warmth and contrast to the scene, also illumintes the petals and grasses from behind causing them to glow. Hung alone or with Spring Forth II, these Texas wildflowers are sure to lift your spirits and brighten up your home.

These lovely little flowers were part of my Thanksgiving Day table arrangement.  While most people were out doing Black Friday I was having a wonderful quiet time in the Studio.  I am so thankful that God provides these flowers for us to enjoy and brighten our day.

I'm looking through my plein air work for four entries to send to this year's Plein Air Southwest Salon. This is my small plein air study done for a larger painting that sold earlier this year. Seems like when I have to look back at my paintings for something that I feel would make a good entry, everything looks inadequate. After a good number of years painting, I understand this feeling. If you're continually painting and trying to improve, what was previously acceptable to us may appear sadly lacking in retrospect. A lot of painters go through periodic episodes of thinking, "What ever made me think I could paint?". It usually happens at the end of a cycle of focused work on improving weaknesses in what we do. The focused effort eventually produces growth and positive results.  

Sometimes we refer to this "breakthrough" as moving up to a new plateau. We can see, and understand things we previously over-looked or that frustrated us. There's always the next "plateau", and the struggle to overcome weaknesses we are painfully aware of. What we see in our mind is always ahead of what we see on our canvas, and there's always the next bridge to cross. For this reason, selecting paintings to enter in an up-coming exhibit or competition can at times be frustrating. It's good to remember that we painters are a work in progress, and our past work doesn't define our future success. Painting requires doing a lot of "bad" paintings in order to get closer to where we want to go. Continually clarifying for ourselves what we're trying to do and where we want to go is what builds the bridges.

Thanksgiving is a most favorite holiday in Flower Mound Studio, if one were to take a vote from the residents. It's only logical, considering the humans are outnumbered by the Pugs at the Polls, and Pugs consider eating a national sport.

I've created a little step by step tutorial for you showing how Butterfly Rest Stop came to bloom. I always begin my paintings with clean, transparent colors - read more...
