"DOUBLE DECKER," 10112, daily painter original abstract © Carol Nelson Fine Art


















This is something different. It's actually two paintings sandwiched together. The top 6x6 painting is a mixed media collage with an epoxy coating. It is mounted on a 7x7 panel painted to coordinate with the top painting. I think the layered 3D effect is cool.
The top painting is actually a demo piece I did for a workshop I gave a couple months ago. I was showing the class how you can use a variety of materials (tyvek, burlap, tacks, in this case) to create a design and then seal all the parts under a layer of epoxy resin.

I think this is truly beautiful, Carol. For some reason, I am getting a sense of the tropics from it as well.
