Original Contemporary Abstract Mixed Media Painting "Sock it To Me" by Contemporary Arizona Artist Pat Stacy

Another bright, happy painting done with a grin on my face. I looked down at my socks on the day I started the painting. They were bright happy fishes done in bright happy colors. I decided to do a painting with all of those colors to make me smile--I hope it makes you smile too! It is gallery wrapped on the sides in the colors and designs of the painting. No need to frame!

"C6" colorful metal mini wall sculpture by Carol Nelson


"C6"
This is another in my mini wall sculpture series of "combines".
This one combines ordinary metal hardware parts that have been painted with alcohol inks.


If you love color, working with alcohol inks is both fascinating and amazing.  It is mesmerizing to watch them interact with each other.

Abstract Expressionism, Mixed Media, Alcohol Ink Painting "Trailing Arbutus" by New Orleans Artist Lou Jordan

"Trailing Arbutus" is one of the Tiny Gems series that I created before Christmas to give to loved ones. It was glued to a w/c paper card. I then signed it and sent it of to one of our many family members and friends. I started one or two and kept on going until I had finished 100! (big family). I could do about 20 at a sitting - and it was addictive! They got better and better the more I did - so it was hard to stop. I took photos of them all before I sent them off so at least I still have the image. If you fall in love with them, I can do lots more - just let me know. They will all be different but I can keep to the same color palette. They make great cards for special people or a lovely display with two or more framed. 

$25 each or 6 for $100.

"New World Trilogy" mixed media abstract painting by Carol Nelson








I love tall skinny canvases and panels - maybe because it's what I am not.  These measure 6 inches wide by 48 inches tall.  For some reason, composition is a breeze with this size.




I started out with some gold metal leaf in a random pattern on my black gessoed panels.  The stripes are Golden fine pumice gel that I used a sculpting tool to make stripes.




I messed around with some corrugated paper - some painted blue green, but decided to try fiber paste.  I also antiqued the gold leaf using raw umber and wiping most of it off.




Then I added Blended Fibers by Liquitex.  It dries transparent, but when you paint on it, it has texture and absorbs the paint differently than the black gessoed surface.

The rest of the panels was painted with Golden Fluid Acrylics in black, white, raw umber, and Paynes gray. I was going for a muted palette where the metal leaf is the star.  I'm in the process of adding epoxy resin to the metal leaf areas only.  I think the play of shiny and matte surfaces will be good.

Abstract Painting, Contemporary Art, "Texture" by Carol Schiff, 16x20" Mixed Media

I was looking at my blogger statistics recently, and noticed that I will be celebrating my 7th year of writing this blog in two weeks!  How did that happen?

To celebrate, I thought I would re-post my most popular painting.  I was shocked to see that two of my works had many, many, more views than the others.  In fact, they had two or three times the amount of views than the 3rd place painting.  They are two completely different pieces of work and even weirder...neither have sold!

I suppose, I should wait for two weeks, but I have to act while I still like the idea, so here is the 2nd most popular  post:

This is a view of a charming cottage and garden I found on a walk through Hyde Park in London.  The cottage was actually some type of park office and the grounds were incredible.

And here is the big winner..............................

325 + shipping
If you would like to read the original post, with a description of how this was painted, you will find it here:

http://carolschiffstudio.blogspot.com/2012/02/daily-abstract-painting-texture-20x16.html

Although I had painted a few small abstract type items, I consider this to be my first REAL abstract.  With 1138 views, it far out paced every other post!

So there is a big difference in the two paintings.  The only thing they have in common is that I painted them both and neither sold!  :)  Maybe, with time, this will become my MOST POPULAR POST!

"Fantasia" mixed media abstract landscape by Carol Nelson

"Fantasia"






Here's another of my muted palette mixed media pieces.  Lol - just kidding about the "muted" part.  This was a demo I did last week for some students taking semi-private instruction in my studio.

It started out as a monoprint, but in the following day or two, I kept adding stuff (acrylic drizzle skins, marbleized/stamped paper) to this painting. 

That's a joy/curse of mixed media - you never know when you're DONE!
Who knows? - I may add MORE stuff to this one (but probably not).

Small Contemporary Abstract Paintings by Melody Cleary, Oregon Artist



It's time again for the 5th annual Art Challenge at the Village Gallery in
Cedar Mill, Oregon.  Artists are challenged to create (4) cohesive pieces on 6 x 6 inch gallery
canvases that will hang vertically in their May show.  A percentage supports
capital improvements for the non-profit gallery.  These are only available for purchase
at the gallery, however, I can produce others in the same style if you're interested.

After some experimentation, I thought it'd be rather Asian looking, however,
the colors bring to mind bright Aftican prints as well.  Oh well, they are
multi-cultural!!  Each has a good luck coin for wealth and prosperity.
