Mixed Media Abstract Collage, "Billboard 4" © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Billboard 4" 24x18 acrylic collage by Carol Nelson

This abstract collage is the latest in my billboard series. I really enjoy doing collage which, as I see it, is just a series of arranging and gluing papers in a pleasing composition.

Most of the papers were left over scraps from other projects - some failed paintings I had done on paper, others, printed papers I had collected over the years.

Abstract Mixed Media Painting "Operetta" by Colorado Mixed Media Abstract Artist Carol Nelson


This painting gets it's name from the musical symbols printed in the piece.  There are textural elements as well, such as Egyptian papyrus paper, printed papers, and strips of painted watercolor paper.  The close color harmony of the palette, primarily metallic tones of copper and bronze, with a touch of lavendar and red oxide, makes this painting soothing.  The dramatic value (dark vs. light) shifts make it a dynamic piece.
