"WOODED WEAVE" 11044, daily painter mixed media abstract © Carol Nelson Fine Art


This painting is on gallery wrap canvas.  It has multiple layers of collaged material including foils, textured papers, and cut up strips of old paintings (notice I didn't say "failed" paintings.)

In some of my workshops, when we're searching for the elusive "something" that will make a painting click, laying these random strips of color over the design will often add the needed random element that brings it all together.

Love this latest piece called "Woven Strips". It has a lot of depth to hold the viewer's eye. Gerri
