Texas Bluebonnet Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley - Just Sold!

"Spring Forth," 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.

Contemporary Abstract Project by Kay Wyne - Completed!

Contemporary Abstract Nursery Paintings
Acrylic on Sixteen Cotton Panels
This is my latest nursery project for our new grandson.  I started with sixteen 6" x 6" RayMar Cotton Panels, painted the background white and slowly started painting shapes with the colors my daughter picked out.  She requested that the images be nonrepresentational with a certain color palette.  As I worked on the small surfaces, I kept adding and working the paint, until I felt like it was complete.  That happened three times.  I normally paint in oils, so working with the fast drying acrylics was a challenge.  I picked a simple white frame for each panel, and here is the result. I wanted a very clean but colorful presentation for the wall.     
I am back in the studio today working on commission and paintings for an upcoming exhibit in February.  Thanks for looking at this blog....Contact Kay for more information on her art.  Kay Wyne

Delicate Blooms by artist Pat Meyer

9 x 12 Oil on Linen
contact artist to purchase

These delicate little blooms where so fragile in the vase while they modeled for me.  Hopefully I captured their delicate side.  Just like people each flower has it's own personality.

Winter Aspen Tree Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

“Climbing Trees” ©2015 Niki Gulley
40” x 30” oil on canvas

Growing up in the midwest, I loved the first snowfall of the year when everything would get a beautiful dusting of pristine white powder, including even the tiniest of branches in the treetops above. If you caught that moment early enough in the morning before anything had disturbed the intricate frosted web, it was just magical. Then the sun would start rising and peeking through the limbs, and everything would sparkle like diamonds. In Climbing Trees, I wanted to capture that beautiful moment when the sunlight dances through the icing on the treetops and you can feel yourself looking up in wonderment just like you did when you were a kid.

"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.
