New "Visions of Blue III" Palette Knife Bluebonnet Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

"Visions of Blue III," Texas Hill Country ©2017 Niki Gulley
24" x 12" textured oil painting

I painted these Texas Bluebonnets and wildflowers with extremely thick oil paint and palette knives to achieve depth and texture. The resulting image comes to life and is loaded with color and energy. In this vertical wildflower series, I've framed the paintings in espresso floater frames so that you can still see the textured oil paint continuing around the edges of the canvas. These Texas wildflowers look great hung alone or in a grouping with the rest of the "Visions of Blue" series, too!

For more information on my "Visions of Blue" series and more of my Texas hill country landscape paintings, please see my new works at the Good Art Company Gallery in Fredericksburg,

We are happy to be back in Florida, and I wanted to mark the occassion with a new abstract.

Purchase here
I really enjoyed creating this art.  Sometimes it is nice to just get in the zone, no particular plan, and let the subconscious take over.

I love playing with paint and these represent some of my favorite colors.  I didn't plan to do a seascape, but it feels like one, especially of the tropical waters in the Caribbean Islands.

The last few months have been hectic for me.  This is just what I needed to calm me down.

Have a great day and thanks for reading my blog.

Original Contemporary Modern Art Abstract Paintings by Filomena de Andrade Booth

Why a Private Painting Workshop?

As artists, we tend to be solitary creatures who like to work alone in our studios.  But sometimes, we tend to get into a painting rut which can lead to a period of non-creativity.  At times like these, we begin to wonder if we've painted or created everything we had in us.  I compare times like these to a drought that parches the land and nothing is able to grow.

We all need to be rejuvenated at times.  We all need to have those creative juices begin to flow so that our god-given talents can bloom once again. 

Since I started offering my private abstract painting workshops, I have had the privilege of hearing artists thank me for re-inspiring them again.  These words mean so much to me and I am thankful that I am able to share my many years of experience with them.

Here are some photos of students who have recently attended my private workshops.  

On October 16 - 18, 2017, I will be offering my annual 3 day group workshop in beautiful Fort Cooper State Park in Inverness, Florida.  I do a very limited number of workshops each year and hope that you will join me and fellow artists for 3 days of fun and learning.
My workshops tend to fill up very quickly, so save your seat today!

“Infinity”, Original Mixed Media Painting/Encaustic by Colorado Artist, Donna L. Martin


In the midst of winter, I start dreaming about spring.  It's the time for renewal, new starts, new colors, new choices.  I always look forward to the flowers blooming and the warm sunshine blowing around in the spring winds.  

This piece is a reflection of my feelings about spring and the hummingbirds that come to visit us every year.  It truly is a mixed media has so many layers and mediums.  For the background, I used a vintage hankie that had a flower stitched into it.  I then added gesso and plaster.  I used an image transfer for the hummingbird and formed the flowers in watercolor, graphite, and intense pencils.  I added some watered-down paint in the background to give it a vintage-feel.  Finally, I finished it off with a layer of encaustic wax, which gave it a dream-like quality.

This little piece will be available soon in an upcoming auction on Facebook.  The link for the auction is:

I would love to hear from you!  You can send me an email at:

  Study With Sandra Duran Wilson, Austin, Texas, May 5-7, 2017

Texture Trifecta with Sandra Duran Wilson 
May 5-7, 2017 in Austin, TX

I can't stay away. I will be returning to the wonderful Ampersand Gallery in Buda (next to Austin) for a 3 day workshop. We will be hitting the trifecta by combining implied and applied textures, building deep surfaces and carving back into them and adding elements we make. If you like texture, this is the class for you. We will have 3 days to build our surfaces on the Ampersand panels using acrylic pastes, gels, plaster, clay products, faux concrete and even glass. I will show you how to create some unique "metallic" papers to incorporate into your layers. Come join the fun and Ampersand has some GREAT deals for us following the workshop. I look forward to sharing a lot of new paints, materials and products with you. All supplies are included. Simply bring your brushes and tools.

Dancing Trees 
24x30 oil on canvas
This was created in the studio from a small study. The original scene was pretty drab and colorless. The trees were full of action and movement and I knew I had to go big on this one. I jazzed it up with cool colors thru layers of paint. 
This is available for purchase.
Please email me if you are interested.
