Mixed Media Abstract Painting, Contemporary Art “Calgary Demo" © Carol Nelson Fine Art



This painting is a diptych - painted on two separate canvas panels.  What looks like two yellow stripes going across the painting is actually gold paint that caught the light brightly.  In person, the gold color is softer.

Spring Retreat in Santa Fe, 4/27 - 5/1
Below is a photo of my workshop students and me last year in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Examples of their fantastic work surround the photo.
This year, I will again be teaching at the Santa Fe Hilton in the historic district. You can join me for this five day workshop, and immerse yourself in the art and cuisine of Santa Fe, the art mecca of the West.
The Hilton is 0.2 miles from the Plaza, the Georgia O'Keefe Museum, the New Mexico Museum of Art, and many fabulous restaurants with authentic Mexican themed food. A trip to explore the galleries on Canyon Road is a must for any visit to Santa Fe.
Also, click on the link http://bit.ly/30NKmv3 to the MISAWest website for more information and to register. This workshop is open to all experience levels.

Mixed Media Tips and Tricks

MayArts ribbon
I first found this ribbon at an art store in Dallas, and was happy to find the website: www.mayarts.com
This ribbon makes really cool "bushes" in my tree collage class.
Notice I buy white ribbon, then paint it the color I want. You cannot always be assured that died ribbon colors will be lightfast.

If you're a mixed media artist, you always are on the lookout for stuff you can use in a painting.
Recently, I remodeled my kitchen. I was thrilled to see the new cabinets come wrapped in this corrugated cardboard.
I love the color and texture of this cardboard. You will be seeing this in a future painting.



Winter has been hanging around my studio in Colorado, and I'm getting a little tired of firing up the snowblower.
