"BURNISHED" 12006, acrylic copper geologic abstract © Carol Nelson Fine Art

Burnished






This geologic abstract has a mat that I painted with two shades of copper acrylic.  Since there is copper and gold paint in the painting, I thought it really enhanced the work.

The bevel on the mat was white.  I painted the bevel black and let the paint smudge out on to the mat a bit. It looks very much like the mat is made from copper metal.

cleaver woman, what a great idea with the mat, gives the abstract itself extra oomph!

You always come up with such good ideas, you're a real inspiration.
and of course I love the painting and the effect of the painted mat as part of the painting.

Thanks for your comments. I'm debating about putting epoxy over the whole thing.

Wonderful piece, Carol. I like the idea of painting the mat too - really makes the piece pop.
