"Winter Day", Original Mixed Media Painting by Colorado Artist, Donna L. Martin

Winter Day




This little painting is fresh off the easel.  It was created with hand-painted papers, inks, and acrylic paints.  It has a dreamy, luminescent quality because of all the layers and glazing of paint.

This one measures 8 X 8 and is finished with a simple, black floater frame.  It is available.  Feel free to send me an email for questions, comments, or if you are interested in purchasing.

Be sure to follow me on Facebook, Instagram, or check out my website.

Fine Art Horizontal Free Standing Sculpture, Mixed Media "Aspen Sunrise" by Santa Fe Artist Sandra Duran Wilson

Side A
                                                                           Side B

I call these pieces sculptures because they are three dimensional paintings that are free standing and show different images depending on the viewing angle. You can even see the shadows behind the trees because there are six layers of colors separated by the cast acrylic. Light passes through them and illuminates the art. These are beautiful on a table where they may be seen from both sides. See side A and side B. Side B is a serene sunrise and there are copper particles embedded into one of the six layers of the sculpture.

Abstract , Folk Art, Narrative Art Painting, “Cajun Cookin” Narrative Art by Santa Fe Artist Judi Goolsby



Contemporary Art, Narrative

This is the first piece I painted when I began to find my own voice as a painter and started putting paint on the canvas as a series of stories from my childhood. I loved thinking of the Louisiana kitchen where my Memaw cooked.

Abstract Seascape | Daily Painting | "Tropical Blues" by Carol Schiff | 6x8" Oil SOLD

When I lived close to the sea, I found that it turned up in my painting in both a representative and non-representative form.  I guess this little daily painting falls somewhere between the two.



SOLD

 I painted this with a palette knife.  I like texture and feel it adds additional interest to my art.  I was thinking about the beautiful greens and blues of the tropical waters off the coast of Florida.  Further south they turn the most amazing shades of azure, but that will be another painting.

BUT A PRINT



I almost always show my paintings in black frames.  It would be hard to find an artwork that would not work well with black and it just makes the colors pop.

“The Road Less Traveled”, Original Mixed Media Painting by Colorado Artist, Donna L. Martin

"The Road Less Traveled"


The finished piece!

I had been wanting to create an elephant in mixed media for quite a while.  I have been admiring Tracy Verdugo's work and I love the elephants that she creates, so that was the inspiration for this piece.  I was actually fortunate enough to be attend one of her workshops a couple of years ago...it was magical!  

This is how it started.  I gessoed a piece of 20 X 20 cradle board.  Then I added texture with molding paste and stencils.  I also added some molding paste to the elephant's trunk and head.  I had some textured paper that I love and decided to add some of that to her ears.  I then gessoed over the molding paste and the paper on her ears.


Here you can see I started adding some paint.  I used Golden's Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold and Burnt Orange.  I'm all about the Turquoise lately, so I threw that in too.




Now for the scary part...starting on the elephant.  I had her sketched out and I started adding some paint.  I mixed Paynes Gray, White, and Anthraquinone Blue, and a little of the Turquoise to get a blue-gray color.  I wanted her to tie in with my background.  It needed more darks, so I added some Van Dyke Brown.






Here I started adding some of the Van Dyke Brown to the textured area in the middle.  I didn't want it to be one solid brown color, so I added some water to fade out some of the brown tones in the middle of the texture.





This part of the piece had me stumped for days and days.  I could not figure out what color to do the bottom of this piece.  It had such nice, nice texture from using the stencil and I didn't want to mess it up.  Finally, I gave in and told myself "who cares if I mess it up, I'm just doing what I like".  So, there again, I used Turquoise and smudged in some of the Anthraquinone Blue.





I had some gorgeous, gorgeous paper that tied into the colors behind my little elephant.  I tore out a border and added it directly under the brown textured border for a pop of color and to tie in with my background.

I also felt like the bottom of this needed to be distressed and not so "in your face" with the blues.  I took some alcohol ink and some of the Van Dyke brown and punched it in under the paper border.  Then I hit it with a spray bottle of water to make it run into the blue.  Fun!!  




So just when I think I'm done, done, my husband, who is an Engineer by the way, takes a look at her.  He points out that her head is too much of a globe shape and that her tusk was going in the wrong direction.  As much as I hate to admit it, he was totally right.  Had to make some slight changes, but here she is.  She is all finished and I LOVE HER!  The only thing left to do is finish her off with resin.





I titled this piece "The Road Less Traveled" because that's how I want to live my life.  I never want to be afraid to take risks and take chances...sort of what I did with this piece.  It can be scary for sure, but let go and see where it takes you. You may totally surprise yourself!

This piece is sold, but please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments.  I would love to hear from you!

Mixed Media Vertical Free Standing Sculpture, Abstract Art “Trees of Oz“ by Santa Fe Contemporary Artist Sandra Duran Wilson

Side A
Side B
BRAND NEW....


This free standing piece presents two distinctly different views based on the viewing angle. I based this piece on a tree that I photographed in Australia. I made a transfer of the image so it would be translucent. I added texture and paint glazes to enhance the color. The other side is painted over silver leaf and incorporates copper particles that give the piece the glow of autumn leaves.
