Summer Newsletter 2 - Carol Nelson Fine Art

Hello Art Lovers and Subscribers,


I'm excited to share with you this new Blick Catalog cover. If you're a customer of Blick
Art Materials, you've probably already received your big book catalog.  If you look
carefully at my painting,  Color Quad (below), you will see that the bottom right quarter
panel of this quadtych was used as the cover image.  How cool is that?!

I have no idea how Blick came across this image of mine, or why they chose to use it
(perhaps they recognized genius).  They did contact me, to get my permission.

      Color Quad, 24x24 quadtych

 Coming Up THIS WEEKEND - $100 ART

On Sunday, August 26th, I will be in Booth 64 at the Affordable Arts Festival.  A new 
event onthe Denver area outdoor show scene, this show has one thing that sets it
 apart from all others: all art must be priced at $100 or less!!!! 
Why would an artist want to do this?  Well, once you've
been painting for a while, you start to run out of studio space and you need to
 clean house.

Most of what I will be selling is work I've done a few years ago.  In recent years,
 my work has become more abstract.   What I will be selling are mostly oil
 paintings that are morerepresentational.
 I will have many unbelievably GREAT DEALS.

  12x12 $80                       11x14 $100                                    6x12  $60

    16x20  $100                                      30x24  $100

Tickets to the event are $5, but you can click here for a discount coupon.

Congrats on the Blick cover! I loved my copy when I got it... but I don't think I even looked to see who the artist was. (DUH)

Best wishes!

Just placed a new order with Dick so I'm hoping they send me the new catalogue with your art on the cover! Congrats!
You are a busy girl, people are going to love the affordable art fair, I'm hoping to be part of one going on in Nov (inside :-) ) that has the same idea.

I know you must be so proud...I know I would be over the moon. Your work is truly fantastic. Your abstract looks perfect ont he cover...and I love the idea of the 100 and under sale.

Thanks for bringing that cover story to my attention on your blog - I always lay that catalog face up on my table and look at it - now I know why I am so attracted to it, it's your painting! Congratulations!
