Color Quad, 9051, abstract quadtych








The inspiration for this abstract came from viewing the work of another artist by the name of Lois Foley, who is deceased. I saw three examples of her abstract work and was blown away by her use of color. Her style was much less structured than these pieces, but the color inspiration is what mainly impressed me.
The triptych I recently finished, Jigsaw, has some of the same compositional elements as Color Quad, but the muted tones and very limited palette of that painting seemed to set me up for this explosion of color.
I had so much fun painting these, I completed them all in one day - about a 10 hour painting marathon.

These are just spectacular! They remind me of an art quiltist Sandi Cummings work. The colors are scrumptious!

wow, beautiful abstract... to tell you the truth, the moment I saw it as a thumbnail on my blogger desktop I knew it was a Carol Nelson. A piece that would lighten up any place ...

Carol, I love color and I love this latest quadtych from you!

I think this is one of first abstracts I've seen you do using so many different colors.

Vibrant, colorful, fun!
