Mixed Media Assemblage, "Blue Spirit" by Carol Nelson Fine Art

Blue Spirit, assemblage by Carol Nelson



This is another in my Assemblage Series featuring mini wall sculptures created with found and recycled materials. The circular blue focal point is a metal washer that was painted using alcohol ink, then covered with epoxy resin. The other blue area is embossed aluminum foil painted with Golden Fluid Acrylics.

 The wrinkled rusty looking paper is actually a WWII era waxed paper fragment used to wrap equipment parts for American troops in the field - remember, plastic had not yet been invented. It's awesome to wonder what the circumstances were surrounding this paper.

Mixed Media Art Painting "Relic" by Colorado Mixed Media Artist Carol Nelson



This is another in my rust series.  In addition to the rusted iron paint used throughout the piece, there is mica flake on the two horizontal bars, and a flattened, rusted Snapple bottle cap that I ran over with my car  in the lower left.  The other rounded shapes in the lower section are actually indentations in the substrate, which is extruded polystyrene.   The background is handmade metallic paper mounted on a piece of MDF board.

Mixed Media Equine Painting,Horse Art "Best of Friends" by Colorado Mixed Media Artist Carol Nelson





I used a palette knife to apply texture to the canvas before layering on several washes of acrylic color on this painting.  The texture and depth of color add to the appeal of this work.

Mixed Media Botanical Painting, "Fading Leaves" © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Fading Leaves", 4x6 mixed media by Carol Nelson

There are many things about this painting that make it very unusual. First, the substrate was covered with silver mylar for a bright shiny look.

 Next, the leaves themselves are made of styrofoam that was partially melted to give the leaves a worn, torn look. Rocks were added to give the appearance of a stream bed.

Finally, the entire piece was covered with epoxy resin to hold the leaves in place and give them strength. Between the shine of the resin and the shine of the silver mylar, this piece was impossible to photograph accurately.

Mixed Media Wall Sculpture "C3" by Colorado Mixed Media Artist Carol Nelson

                                               




This sculpture is made up of found objects that have been painted with iron paint, which is then rusted.  Looking carefully, you can see an old bottle cap (which was already rusted), a small canvas, a spool that held ribbon, some leftover tile from my bathroom project, the top of a spice bottle, part of a light fixture, and a fluted nut.

I love turning trash into art, and working three dimensional.  This "combination"  can hang on a wall or be displayed on a small easel.
