Mixed media collage painting, "Billboard 8" by Colorado Mixed Media Artist Carol Nelson

"Billboard 8", 32x24 mixed media collage by Carol Nelson




progress photo


This mixed media collage is a diptych of two canvases measuring 12x24 inches, and 20x24 inches. It may be hung with the break going horizontally (as shown) or vertically.

 The painting utilizes my "sandwich technique" as demonstrated in my instructional video, New Approaches to Mixed Media Materials.

 Although my work is usually filled with vibrant colors, sometimes I am inspired to create in a more neutral palette. Although there are small areas of metallic gold and copper, the predominant colors are Van Dyke brown, and shades of taupe, gray, buff, black and white.

In the progress photo, you see the two sandwich pieces laid on top of black construction paper to see how they would look against a dark background. I then toned the two canvases in gray and taupe, keeping the values very light.

I ended up painting the construction paper with Van Dyke brown, and using it in the background.  A little more shadowing and some drips, and I was done!

Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Abstract Expressionism, "Southwest Sunset", 8x8x1.5" Oil

As you know, I like to dabble with abstract on occasion.  I seem to paint in spirts....all landscapes, or all flowers, or all seascapes, etc.  This is left over from the last time I had the itch to do an abstract.

130 + shipping
Try and try again, I could not accurately photograph the colors in this piece.  It is actually a tad brighter than depicted here.  Don't you hate when that happens?

Trying to show the sides of the canvas in this shot....not inspired, sorry!

Cheers!!

Contemporary Abstract Painting "Incidence" by Intuitive Artist Joan Fullerton



 The title Incidence at the Edges, reflects the design concept of not having the visual entertainment at the perimeters of the design...I often heard, "Don't have incidence at the edges". This rule has gone out of favor with many, and I am one. I often prefer having a quiet meditative space in the middle of the composition.

Expressionist Sunset Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 9x12" Oil on Canvas Seascape

Well probably your 5 yr old kid could do this....right?  Maybe that is why I enjoy it so much.

purchase here
 I may be a slow learner, because it took me many years to get to this point.  Mama never said I was the sharpest knife in the drawer.




All kidding aside, I really love the freedom of this piece.  Instead of leaving the studio feeling like I have been fighting for hours, I felt very relaxed, happy and ready to sail through the day.  I think I need to do this more often!

Everyone must be in the home stretch of Christmas activities now, but for me, it's all about putting my feet up and enjoying a glass of wine.  We celebrated with our family last weekend.  When we have to do this, to get everyone together at the same time, we call it "Schiffmas".  With Grandkids in college it is getting harder and harder for us to have a family get together  with no "missing in action."  Jeff and I feel so blessed when we manage to do so.

Thanks for reading my blog today.
