"Tapestry", mixed media contemporary geologic abstract © Carol Nelson Fine Art

Tapestry

with frame





I love how this painting turned out.  It has so many different materials in it - a virtual mixed media smorgasbord (copper, aluminum, pewter, crackle paste, stucco mix, etc.)

Want to know a little secret about this painting?  It's a redo.


I did the first version (above) in 2009.  My goal then was to incorporate a number of metals in an analogous color scheme abstract.  I guess it was so analogous that it was boring.  So I added more texture and beefed up the contrast - does that sound familiar?

Wow, that is amazing. I love the details you added. And it's nice to see a photo that shows the actual size, as well.

I really love this, but then I love all of your geological abstracts. Wish you did workshops in the UK!
