Mixed Media Abstract Painting, "Ticket to Ride" © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Ticket to Ride" 30x40 mixed media painting by Carol Nelson

This is a remake of an older painting I never really loved, so I gave it new life. There is a lot of texture with molding paste, tyvek, and corrugated paper.

The color palette is one of my favorites: Dioxazine Purple, Quin Nickel Azo Gold, and Quin Magenta. Of course there's some other colors in there too, but those are the big three.

Geological Abstract Art Painting "Sacred Ground'" by Colorado Mixed Media Artist Carol Nelson



This is another in my geologic abstract series celebrating warm, earthy tones of the West. I must apologize for the photo in that the copper and gold metal foil squares do not appear shiny. 
Also, there are several passages in the painting that have soft metallic sheen which do not show on the photo.

A black canvas floater type frame complements this work perfectly and is INCLUDED, along with shipping in the US.

Mixed Media Abstract Painting, "Industrial Chic 2" by Colorado Mixed Media Artist Carol Nelson

"Industrial Chic 2," 36x44 mixed media by Carol Nelson

This is a commission painting I did for collectors looking for an industrial grunge look. Heavy in texture, the painting also has 3 aluminum metal panels at the top (they look white in the photo) that wrap around the sides. The central red feature has 9 glass tiles in shades of gold, beige and taupe. The central black vertical feature is covered with clear epoxy resin, giving a smooth glass-like finish that contrasts with the rough texture in the rest of the painting.
