Terra Firma 2, mixed media geologic abstract diptych, © Carol Nelson Fine Art
This commissioned diptych is sold. The client is the ideal person to work with. She has never seen my work in person, but studied all the geologic abstracts on my website very carefully. She told me the dimensions, the colors, and metals she was looking for.
She commented about what aspects of several of my previous paintings appealed to her, so I had a very good idea of what she wanted. She sent me photos of where the painting will hang. When you're dealing in abstract work, it's somewhat challenging to describe what you want in precise terms.
I did a series of bozzettos for her to pick a design that appealed to her. The final painting is actually quite close to the design she chose.
