Mixed Media Art Painting "Relic" by Colorado Mixed Media Artist Carol Nelson
This is another in my rust series. In addition to the rusted iron paint used throughout the piece, there is mica flake on the two horizontal bars, and a flattened, rusted Snapple bottle cap that I ran over with my car in the lower left. The other rounded shapes in the lower section are actually indentations in the substrate, which is extruded polystyrene.
The background is handmade metallic paper mounted on a
piece of MDF board.
