Geologic Petroleum Abstract Painting, "Mineral Rights 2" @ Carol Nelson Fine Art


"Mineral Rights 2", 24x24 by Carol Nelson


detail







This painting represents another in my geologic abstract series.  It shows my interpretation of petroleum deposits deep within the earth.

The black/gray areas have a smooth, glass-like coating of resin, which contrasts beautifully with the other heavy rough-textured areas.

For additional pizazz, I added a few mica flakes and micaceous iron oxide paint.  You know how I love sparkle.

Abstract Seascape, Daily Painting, Abstract Mxed Media "Sea Rhythm" 6x8" SOLD

The sea is so fascinating to me.  I love the thought of all the life under the surface of the sea....movement as the waves are pulled to the shore, tiny sea creatures burrowing into the sand..........

SOLD




Jelly fish that look like man-made objects, balloons, or aliens...........



So many interesting and exciting things going on that we are totally unaware of.  All we see is the beautiful surface of the sea.

This piece is inspired by that thought.  The paint is an example of pouring technique, along with texture and metallic elements.  Although the metallic has photographed in a warm color, it is actually silver.  Much experimenting going on in my studio these days. Feel free to pin it!

Abstract Mixed Media Art Painting "Headlines" by Colorado Mixed Media Abstract Artist Carol Nelson






Our lives are increasingly impacted by headlines.  Sound bites assault us where ever we go.
Representing all this information, this painting is a busy mix of several types of media.  I kept the palette on the muted side because I 
wanted the texture to be the focus of this interesting piece.

Several types of papers were used, from Japanese rice paper to Egyptian papyrus.
This contemporary painting arrives ready to hang or to add a frame matching your decor.
