Mixed Media Abstract Painting, "Sunken Treasure" © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Sunken Treasure", 30x24 mixed media by Carol Nelson



 This painting has some interesting things added to it. The "treasure" is bits of gold colored metal from a necklace, and gold painted wood pieces. Considering the watery appearance of the rest of the painting, it wasn't hard to come up with a title.

 I tried something different for the finish on this painting. It has Golden's Self Leveling Clear Gel in a relatively thick layer. I poured it on and spread it around with a brush. The gel "produces a smooth, even, flexible, glossy film of excellent clarity with water and UV resistance." It is very shiny, and certainly easier to work with than smelly varnish.

Mixed media geologic abstract, "Sedona Vibe" © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Sedona Vibe", 20x16 inches, by Carol Nelson

This is another in my geologic abstract series featuring abstracted rocky landscapes. I love texturing a canvas and then going crazy with the colors.

This one went from OK to Wow after I added the lavender tones. There's even some pink in there - a rarity in my work.

Mixed media abstract series, "Small Wonders" © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Small Wonders" by Carol Nelson

These Small Wonders are a new series of diminutive paintings (3 x 3 x 1 inch) based on my Gemstone series. They are priced INDIVIDUALLY.
If you wish to order one or more, please send me an email specifying which one(s), and I will send you a Paypal invoice.

Like the Gemstone series, the painting is done on a foam plate, then trimmed to fit a 3x3x1 inch mini canvas. They look so cute, I just can't stand it!!

In teaching my workshops, I end up with a lot of demo paintings for the Gemstone series. Now I have something to do with these!

Mixed media abstract landscape, "Foothills" © Carol Nelson Fine Art


"Foothills", 6x24, mixed media by Carol Nelson
detail

There a wonderful moments that happen from time to time in the studio. This painting started with a random application of texture compounds.

Then, with a neutral palette in mind, I poured black, white, and sepia colors and let them wander. Turning the canvas in different directions, I was struck with the landscape image that became this painting.

Mostly, the painting painted itself with a little guidance from me. After I saw the landscape forming, I added some metallic colors of bronze and silver, and a bit of micaceous iron oxide.
