Contemporary Abstract Mixed Media Painting "From The Sea" by Contemporary Arizona Artist Pat Stacy



FRESH OFF THE EASEL......



A beautiful predominately turquoise work that has life that cannot be sustained without water. Done with gleaming fine line work on the corners, textures, and symbols, it is one of my personal favorites.

Mixed media abstract painting, "Headlines" by Colorado Mixed Media Abstract Artist Carol Nelson

Mixed media abstract painting, "Headlines" by Carol Nelson








When you think about it, artists who paint in a realistic style, pretty much know when their painting is done.  They paint a still life or a landscape, and when they have achieved their best representation of that subject, they're done.

With abstracts, the point of being done is open to interpretation.
I'm reminded of a story about abstract expressionist Robert Rauschenberg.

He was house sitting for his friend and mentor, Marcel Duchamp, who was visiting in France.  Rauschenberg noticed a painting he had done hanging in Duchamp's home.  Since Rauschenberg was in his "black period", he PAINTED OVER the original painting with thick black paint.  Duchamp was not pleased with the redo of the painting.

Thus it is with paintings I have hanging in my home. I look at them critically all the time.  How could I make them better?  "Headlines" just came back from a gallery, where it did not sell.  This is what it looked like:






I actually like the first version, but I thought the MAUVE color might be the reason it had not found a home. I added tones of gold, sepia, and umber.

"Fear No Color" with Sandra Duran Wilson
August 7th
Art Unraveled 2016

Have you ever struggled with colors not turning out as you had envisioned them or your colors end up muddy? Then this class is for you. You will learn which colors, when placed next to each other, will create a specific mood for your art. Whether you are a painter, book artist or mixed media artist, this class will give you the knowledge and confidence to develop your own signature color scheme. We will work with values, composition and hues. You will create color studies, learn the power of glazing and uncover the secrets to successful color compositions. You will discover the beauty of layering color and which colors will cover and color and which will color, but be transparent. We will put all of this together on panels and paper. You will leave with lots of new found color confidence, valuable color studies and finished art to boot. What a fun day!

Mixed Media Abstract, "Golden Mantle" by Mixed Media Artist Carol Nelson Fine Art

Mixed media abstract painting, "Golden Mantle" by Carol Nelson



This is a redo of a painting I did in 2008.  It's been happily hanging in my living room all this time, but I decided to give it a makeover.
The turquoise, green areas are all new.





This is the original version.  I think adding the complimentary tones of turquoise and green gives it a lot more pizzazz.
