"Happy Campers" ©2018 Niki Gulley
8" x 16" textured oil painting

Painted on location, I loved these colorful campers we came across at this “glamping” park, and I just had to capture the scene. Their owners seemed to be haivng so much fun and they took such pride in their mobile homes and the way they had decorated them, that a couple even gave us tours of the insides. They were inspiring! I hope this painting brings back fond memoreis of camping for you, too.

New "Harmonic Hues" Aspen Tree Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

"Harmonic Hues" ©2018 Niki Gulley
36" x 36" texture oil painting

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 grey greens, teals and soft golds, with hints of pumpkin and crimson to bring pops of joy and energy. 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!

New Summer Hues Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

"Harmonic Hues" Series ©2018 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 12" x 12" textured oil on canvas


I painted this aspen grove with extremely thick oil 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 aspen and birch trees series look great hung alone to brighten up a little spot, or in a grouping with some of the other seasons I've painted to fill a larger space. Hang them horizontally (pictured below), vertically, on a diagonal or stacked like pictured above. E-mail Niki Gulley to find complimentary companion pieces.

New "Breaking Through" White Rock Lake Painting by Dallas Artist Niki Gulley


"Breaking Through," White Rock Lake ©2018 Niki Gulley
24" x 18" textured oil painting

On a peaceful spring morning, I set up my easel at White Rock Lake to capture the sun rising behind this beautiful, tangled Cottonwood. I liked how the warm light accentuated the tree's curves and textured bark, and I chose this vertical composition to show off its size and strength. In the distance, the light starts to break through the clouds,  causing  the water's surface to glisten and illuminating the landscape. I hope this scene gives you a sense of peace and lifts your spirits for what the day has to bring.

New "Come Fly with Me" Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

"Come Fly with Me" ©2018 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 12" x 16" textured oil painting

Just Sold! Painted on location, I wanted this piece to be very inviting and relaxing.  The tide laps against the shore so that you can hear the rhythmic, soothing music of the waves cresting and falling. Sunlight rakes across the wooden porch while you gently rock, enjoying the sounds and the view. Whenever I visit the seashore I always feel rejuvenated, and I hope I’ve translated that onto the canvas for you to experience it, too.
