"Golden Dawn" textured mixed media abstract by Colorado contemporary mixed media artist Carol Nelson

"Golden Dawn" 6x12 abstract landscape by Carol Nelson





This painting was a demo for my recent workshop in Louisville, CO.  The board was heavily textured with modeling compound, then allowed to thoroughly dry for 2 days.  By the third day, the class was ready to pour mixed acrylic paints over their textured surfaces.

I have to say this is a very relaxing process because you have to WAIT and allow the colors to find their way through the texture and mingle together.  In a workshop setting, it is advisable to have another painting to work on simultaneously rather than just sit there watching paint mix.

The "sun" in this case was made from modeling clay into which I embossed a pattern.  I've decided that buying a block of air dry modeling clay is a lot less hassle than making my own cold porcelain, which is very messy.  At least is was messy for me because I ended up with corn starch all over my kitchen.

“Fly”, Original Mixed Media Artwork by Colorado Artist, Donna L. Martin

 "Fly"
 
 



 
 
"Flying" and being brave seems to be my "theme" for the year.  This whole new adventure, painting in mixed media, has been born out of a tragedy.  It has evolved out of trying to heal and explore what works for me in the healing process. 
 
In this new journey, I have been trying to push myself and my art.  I've been finding my voice, for the first time, through my art and what it says.  I seem to be connecting to people through my art...and no words seem to be necessary.  All of the emotions in my heart and soul spill out on to the canvas.  
 
This piece has several layers in it.  I used stencils at the very beginning and then began layering torn and painted pieces of paper over the stenciled areas.  I used a stencil and molding paste to add more texture.  I then added a photo transfer of the butterfly and painted over her body and wings.  In this piece I wanted to convey the feeling that the butterfly is flying towards the light, which is how I was feeling.  I also added a glass door pull in the middle of the piece - just because I loved it and it felt like the piece needed it.
 
I have always been extremely shy and I'm not very good with words, so this is an amazing way for me to be able to say what I'm not able to.  It is scary, "putting it out there" for people to see.  I wonder if people will get it, or relate to it, or judge it.  But, this is the year to be brave and just do it.  So, I will continue in this journey.  I will try to be "Fearless" and "Fly".
 
"Fly"
 
12 X 12 X 1.5  Mixed Media on Cradle Board.  It is heavily textured with layers and layers of paint, paper, and molding paste.  The middle of the piece is embellished with a glass door pull.  It is finished with a Resin Coating ~ No need to frame, unless you would like to do so.
 
$140

“Color Study 1" acrylic abstract painting by Colorado Contemporary Artist Carol Nelson

Color Study 1, 10x8 acrylic abstract by Carol Nelson

Every artist should do color and composition studies.  Using water color paper and my Golden Fluid Acrylics, the set up is easy, and a study like this can be completed in less than an hour.

I find in my classes that many artists don't allow themselves play time - time spent in your studio just messing around with your paints.  How else are you going to know what happens when you mix dioxizine purple and pyrrole orange in varying proportions?

If it doesn't turn out to be something you want to frame, no worries - you then have some great collage paper!  Sometimes you will hit the artistic jackpot and your study will be the basis for a larger painting.
