Abstract, Mixed Media Landscape, “Foothills” by Colorado Mixed Media Abstract Artist Carol Nelson


"Foothills", 6x24, mixed media by Carol Nelson
detail

There a wonderful moments that happen from time to time in the studio. This painting started with a random application of texture compounds.

Then, with a neutral palette in mind, I poured black, white, and sepia colors and let them wander. Turning the canvas in different directions, I was struck with the landscape image that became this painting.

Mostly, the painting painted itself with a little guidance from me. After I saw the landscape forming, I added some metallic colors of bronze and silver, and a bit of micaceous iron oxide.

Mixed media abstract collage, "Cloud Kiss" © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Cloud Kiss", 20x16 inches, by Carol Nelson

I am wondering why this painting received so many "likes" on Facebook. The neutral palette? The various textures? The cruciform design pattern? The juxtaposition of hard and soft edges? The full range of values?

 I knew it was a winner as soon as I finished it. All the commotion on my Facebook page affirms that.

"There is Always Light", Original Mixed Media Painting by Colorado Artist, Donna L. Martin

There is Always Light



Well, this one was a wild ride!  This is fresh off the easel and for a while, it was a true ugly duckling.  I decided to walk...no run, out of my comfort zone and use colors that I don't usually use.  The photo below is the beginning of the process, using stencils and collage, and then trying to tone it down with some titanium white.



After this, I added texture around the piece using molding paste and stencils, layering one stencil over the other so it wouldn't look so "contrived".  After it was dry, I began adding inks...in colors that I wouldn't normally use.  I used a purple ink that had just a small amount of shimmer to it.  It was very, very bright and I needed to tone it down again.  After the "wild colors" had dried, I added sepia ink over the whole piece...several times.



At this stage, I was pretty sure I had ruined it, but what happened next was pretty amazing.  The colors started showing through the sepia ink in the most beautiful way.  It still had a beautiful and translucent quality to it, but the ink toned it down and gave it so much more depth.

I decided to add trees, since I have been created a series based on trees.  I added the trees with the same color inks that I used in the background and added some tiny, white branches in some areas.  The texture came out beautifully too...you can see it in these close up photos.




.
This painting is full of emotion.  We just found out that my dad was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  Everything about that at this point is unknown.  When I don't know what to do, I paint.  It's the only way I know how to express myself sometimes.  It's ironic that I "didn't know" about how beautiful these colors would turn out...just diving in and trusting the process.  I feel like with my dad, I just have to have the same kind of trust and faith.  Heading on into the unknown and looking for the beauty in each, single, precious moment and never taking any of it for granted.

This painting will be available at Art in the Park in Parker, CO on August 25th and 26th from 10:00 - 4:00.  Also, at the Castle Rock Artfest in Castle Rock, CO on Sept. 8th and 9th from 10:00 - 5:00.  I would love to see you there.  Meanwhile, keep looking for the light!

"Stand by Me", Original Mixed Media Painting by Colorado Artist, Donna L. Martin

"Stand by Me"


This is one of my latest paintings in my series of tree paintings.  It was created using layers of hand-painted papers, acrylic paints, and acrylic inks.  So many hours were spent on the trees and trying to create sort of an ethereal feel and look to this one.  Here is a photo of how this one began and the progress:


This painting will be available for purchase during a couple of art shows I am participating in this year.  The first is in Parker, CO, Art in the Park, on August 25th and 26th from 10:00 - 4:00.  The second show is the Castle Rock Artfest in Castle Rock, CO on Sept. 8th and 9th from 10:00 - 5:00.  I would love to see you there!  In the meantime, feel free to send me an email, or follow me on Facebook and Instagram.
