Abstract Expressionism, Mixed Media, Alcohol Ink Painting "Back Canyon" by New Orleans Artist Lou Jordan

"Mirliton" 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.

"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).

For more information about this 8x8 inch painting, click here to go to my website.

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.

Original Mixed Media Abstract Painting, “Take Heart through the Fire ", by International Mixed Media Artist, Donna L. Martin

"Take Heart Through the Fire"
 
I thought it would be fun to take you through the creation of this piece, from the very beginning to the finished version!
 
 
This is how it started out - a big, white, intimidating canvas.  I added some texture with a cool stencil that I have and some molding paste.  I then started filling in some color with alcohol ink around the divets in the stencil.
 
 
I started adding more color with alcohol inks.  I also had some really cool textured cardboard that I painted with metallic bronze paint and then "rusted" with a rusting solution.  Thanks to Carol Nelson again for teaching me that trick!  
 
 
I also picked up some paper from the shooting range (that is what is sitting on top and bottom of the stenciled part).  It had all these cool holes in it.  Once again, I painted it bronze and then rusted it.  I started attaching in randomly to the piece.
 
 
 
For this middle portion, I painted it with metallic copper paint and then used a solution to patina the paint.  It looks like some kind of regular ol' green paint, but was really quite a process!  
 
 
So after sitting with it for a while, this piece just needed something else, but I couldn't figure out what.  Then lo and behold, I was walking on a local trail and looked down and saw this very cool piece of metal sitting in the dirt alongside the trail.  Seems I've become quite the scavenger!  It was just what I needed to finish this.
 
 
 
Ta Da!!!  All done and ready to go out the door!  It is finished with a beautiful epoxy resin finish (except for the rusted "heart" that I found on the trail), so there is no need for framing.
 
This piece measures 24 X 18 X 1.5, and is available for purchase.

Sailboat Painting, Small Oil Painting, "Swirl" by Carol Schiff, 10x8x.75" Oil

I had so much fun with this sailboat painting!  I have a photo of a sailboat regatta we watched several years ago.  It was quite breezy and the little boats were buzzing around like bees, trying to complete their course.

Purchase here
160 + shipping
 I wanted to really capture the feel of the day and the movement of the water and boats.  I started by applying texture to my blank canvas.



Then I attacked with a palette knife and plenty of thick paint,  trying to capture even more texture.



It was a perfect painting day...I danced around the studio in between strokes.  This little painting is at the top of the list in enjoyment and it still makes me smile when I see it!

Give it a try....and pin this if you like.
