"ENCHANTED" 11065 daily painter mixed media tree abstract © Carol Nelson Fine Art


I'm continuing with my forest series.  This one is on 30x18 inch canvas and is covered with a layer of clear epoxy resin.  I got the idea for this painting while I was sitting my booth at an art show.

I noticed a painting I had on display had two areas of metallic corrugated paper with the grooves going both vertical and horizontal.  It was exciting how the light reacted so differently depending on the orientation of the grooves.
early stage

Using the corrugated paper, and several other art papers, I came up with a fanciful tree design.  This painting can only be appreciated in person so you can see the light dance.

Enchanted is right, Carol. With a child-like imagination those trees could be lollipops or balloons. Wonderful piece.

I just love how you are using the corrugated paper to establish you tree designs. Love the stuff too. Again what a brilliant series
