"Autumn Symphony" pastel by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley


“Autumn Symphony” ©2014 Niki Gulley
Pastel • 24” x 36”

This is a quiet, protected creek by our house that I like escaping to when I need a break from city life. On this perfect autumn day, there was the gentlest of breezes rustling the leaves, the vibrant fall foliage was at its peak and the only sounds to be heard came from the trickling of the nearby waterfall and the birds’ sweet melodies.

E-mail me at Niki@NikiGulley.com for more information about "Autumn Symphony."

Warm Hearts Stargazers is the daily newbie in Flower Mound Studio, where things are in a bit of a floral uproar, petals flying hither and yon, leaves scattered everywhere. The studio director in particular has been quite helpful as I pack for the dream vacation of a lifetime, a trip to Southern France. This is my first trip to France, and the hubby is going with so I'll have a big strong guy to carry all my baubles and trinkets and help scout out the best gelato in town. We were told to "pack light" so I've pretty much narrowed down to the following essentials: Read more...

Day 7, Provence Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

9" x 12" textured oil painting by Niki Gulley • SOLD

Day 7, Provence Art Trek: 
Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshop 
with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

On the last day of our Provence Art Trek, we decided to stay right at our b and b to paint since it was so beautiful. Meanwhile the photographers explored the nearby area, and others relaxed with a morning massage at a nearby spa. Choosing what to paint was a challenge since the grounds are so picturesque. Myself and another painter set up our easels by this lovely lavender-lined Provencal home, while another chose to paint the rose-filled courtyard and another set up by the ancient Roman bridge on the back of the property. It was a gorgeous morning and everyone's paintings turned out great!


For lunch we headed into the nearby hill town, grabbed a delicious snack and had time to explore the back alleys and hike up to the town's fortress with panorama views of the sweeping valleys and countryside.

Rhapsody in Blue Lavender

16X20
Oil on Archival Panel



I'm warming up my lavender brushes this week, because next week they'll be dipping into the colors of France! I'll be visiting the property where my August 2015 workshop will be held, testing the gelato, deciding which cheeses are the most yummy, and sipping the local vintage a time or three. It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it! My first France workshop filled in 2 days, so I opened a second workshop and I'm holding a seat especially for you. Don't delay, there are only a few seats left for a painting adventure designed to make your lavender dreams come true!

Dreams Come True and Hill Country Lavender - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina

Hill Country Melody Lavender
by Nancy Medina

Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas




If you could take a workshop anywhere in the world, where would your heart and your paint brush lead you? Just when I think my new job as a full time artist and teacher could not get any better, another fringe benefit blossoms right before my eyes. Thanks to my talented, motivated and beautiful students, I've been able to find venues and ideas for teaching flower painting workshops around the world that seemed like just an unreachable dream a year ago.

One of my favorite places to teach is in the Texas Hill Country, and some of my favorite family vacation memories are right here amidst these old stone farmhouses, in particular Settlers Crossing, a B&B five miles from this historic German town. Plans are in the works for another workshop in Fredericksburg next spring, so stay tuned to my workshop page for details to come. Thanks so much Jane for making this dream come true!

This palette knife painting is fun, colorful and has lots of texture.  You can see the layers of paint, as it was applied with a knife.  You can't help but want to put your hands over the surface and feel the chunks of paint.  The paint is also on the sides of the stretcher bars, so framing is optional.  Contact Kay for more information on this painting.  Thanks for looking...Kay
