Geological Abstract Art Painting "Sacred Ground'" by Colorado Mixed Media Artist Carol Nelson



This is another in my geologic abstract series celebrating warm, earthy tones of the West. I must apologize for the photo in that the copper and gold metal foil squares do not appear shiny. 
Also, there are several passages in the painting that have soft metallic sheen which do not show on the photo.

A black canvas floater type frame complements this work perfectly and is INCLUDED, along with shipping in the US.

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 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.

Contemporary Abstract Painting, "Kung Pao" by Colorado Mixed Media Artist Carol Nelson



This is a revision of a previous work by the same name. I love the rich, luscious colors which are enhanced with a clear epoxy coating on the piece. A simple black wood frame is the perfect complement.
