Lunga Puffins by Rebecca Zook




Art Therapy
Post 5

I'm a little behind the curve right now. As I said to Ed last night, my daily life is really the same as it was before. He started mentioning dolphins in Italian canals, a civet wandering the street in Asia and much more. I hadn't heard any of this. My first thought was amazement at how rapidly Nature reclaims her domain. This quickly turned to horror at how palpable human impact is, but also how maybe smaller changes could have immediate impacts not just on the environment, but ourselves. I'm a realist. I know the issues are complicated and people have to make a living, but I hope lessons we are learning right now have a lasting impact. Companies who wouldn't let employees work from home are learning that in many cases, it's more than possible. Families are reconnecting. Neighbors are helping each other. I am watching all this and realizing I need to allow myself more down time. Self-imposed stress is just as bad. Painting is not down time when it's paying the bills. My Zen is my garden. I'm going to work in the garden this weekend and recapture some calm.

Enjoy these puffins. The trip Ed and I took to the wilds of Scotland is something I will never forget.

Lunga Puffins
20" x 16" | Acrylic on Panel

Cities are not for me. I prefer to visit the wilder places on this planet and the Isle of Lunga did not disappoint. It is 200 acres of unspoiled native habitat for a variety of seabirds, but the puffin is what drew me to the island. I've been enamored with this comical bird since childhood and observing them in person was truly a childhood dream realized. They had no fear of humans, so were mere feet from me busily digging their burrows and lining them with grass to house eggs for the next breeding cycle. Pausing only to dive from the cliffside to bring back fish for last years nearly grown chicks.

It's all about finding balance right now. Look for the good and hold onto hope to balance out the bad.

"Autumn Progression" Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

"Autumn Progression" ©2020 Niki Gulley
 textured oil painting on canvas • 12" x 24" • Framed in espresso 2" floater frame


Flickering autumn leaves seem to almost dance in a gentle breeze while white sentinels slice through the colorful backdrop and create a rhythm as they march along. Repeating and receding, the aspen trunks lead you into the distance, inviting you to take a relaxing walk on a beautiful autumn morning.

Spring Thaw | Melt Water by Rebecca Zook



Art Therapy
Post 3


This one was a little different for me, but I liked the challenge and loved the textures. I shot the source image in North Carolina. My husband and I rented a cabin and explored the area with our cameras in hand.

Spring Thaw
20" x 16" | Acrylic on Panel


Slowly, warmth touches the ice, transforming it. Released from winter’s dormant hold, it begins its decent. Gaining speed and determination, the water now destined to bring life to the landscape. Spring has come again.

New Commissioned Snow Scene by Palette Knife Artist Niki Gulley

Winter Wonderland ©2020 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 18" x 36” textured oil painting


Recently, I was commissioned by a new collector to paint the house that his wife grew up in Alaska. Surrounded by tons of acreage in this gorgeous winter wonderland, I love how the house has the perfect view of this commanding vista. I feel so honored that I got to create something so personal for their anniversary, and that she can enjoy childhood memories every time she gazes into my painting. 

If you'd like me to create a unique painting of your favorite place or a fond memory, please let me know.

Time to Go | Sunset Skyscape by Rebecca Zook



Art Therapy
Post 1


I've been sharing one of my paintings a day through the duration of the COVID-19 shutdown. I hope other artists will follow. A lot of us have been or are starting to have real anxiety about the multitude of difficulties we are and will be facing because of this crisis. I believe beauty is important right now. It is for my sanity anyway.

Time to Go

by Rebecca Zook

Grasses of green turn to tan. Nature’s warm breath cools and her skies beckon birds to take flight. Migration begins.
