Mixed Media Abstract Painting, "Sunken Treasure" © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Sunken Treasure", 30x24 mixed media by Carol Nelson



 This painting has some interesting things added to it. The "treasure" is bits of gold colored metal from a necklace, and gold painted wood pieces. Considering the watery appearance of the rest of the painting, it wasn't hard to come up with a title.

 I tried something different for the finish on this painting. It has Golden's Self Leveling Clear Gel in a relatively thick layer. I poured it on and spread it around with a brush. The gel "produces a smooth, even, flexible, glossy film of excellent clarity with water and UV resistance." It is very shiny, and certainly easier to work with than smelly varnish.

Native American Legend Raven Art Painting "Why Raven is Black" by Painter of the American West Nancee Jean Busse





 This painting is the 5th painting in a series inspired by Native American legends.
 These works bring me back to my illustration roots. I love painting the visual imagery of a    colorful narrative.

 Native American legends are colorful and full of life and the natural world.
 I paint these uniformly: all are the 36x24 and all are painted on Yupo mounted to gatorboard.  I love indulging my love of detail and "close work.


 The legend that inspired this painting is retold  HERE

Native American Art,Western Landscape, Teepee Painting "THE STORYTELLER" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West

FRESH OFF THE EASEL...

 Teepee,Sandhill Cranes


In this painting there are 2 storytellers: the me-the-artist and the child in the glowing teepee. Both of us are spinning yarns. The child brings the sandhill cranes to life with the enthusiasm of her tall tale. I'm telling a tall tale about the power and magic of imagination and the spoken word. I had a story I wanted to tell with this painting. I remember how I loved stories as a child, listening to them and telling them. BIG stories with fantastic elements and plenty of fabrication! In The Storyteller, the power of a young child's spoken words bring the sandhill cranes to life. They exist first on the teepee as a graphic element and then burst into the starry night sky, real and full of life!

This painting is titled "Sunrise, McElmo Canyon." It's of the beautiful mountain lion I photographed at the Triple D photo shoot down in Cortez. The sun was beginning to pour into the canyon and the puma turned her head to look into the rising sun. It was a perfect moment! How could I NOT paint it?

"Forgotten Girl", by Colorado Artist, Donna L. Martin

Forgotten Girl




Dear Forgotten Girl,

I see you.  I've always seen you.  

I saw the many times you were overlooked and felt forgotten.  I was there when you were always the last picked for the team.  I saw the hurt in your eyes when friends would pass you by to hang out with the other "cool kids".  You never fit it, because of your last name, because the color of your skin wasn't the same as the others in your class, because you were the quiet one.  You were restless and longing for more...even at a young age. You tried your hardest to make friends, but so often, it didn't happen.  You were different, not like the others.

I witnessed your best friend's dad abusing you at the age of 7.  I felt your confusion and your pain, not quite sure of what just happened.  You were too scared to tell your parents.  How would you even tell them something you didn't understand yourself?  Would they believe you anyway...you were just a kid.  

I saw the humiliation and brokenness you felt when your own father kicked you to the ground and called you "stupid" in front of your whole family. My heart broke for you when not one came over to help you up or rushed to your side. They didn't "interfere" in those days.

I was there when you were pregnant at 16, trying to hide it from your parents and you felt so alone.  I cried with you when a few months later, you miscarried your precious baby girl.  You grew up way too fast and knew a loss most your age couldn't even fathom.

I still see you.  Most of the time, you still feel like you don't "fit in".  You are still "the quiet one".  Sometimes I see your longing to conform to the world, but you aren't of this world.  And it's okay.

Because of all of these things, it gave you a heart for the broken, for the people that feel alone, for the forgotten.  Because of your stories, you have the gift of compassion and empathy.  I see the passion, the joy, the gratitude you have for the life you are living right now, in this moment, because you know it hasn't always been this way.  I see the dreams you work tirelessly for and are beginning to realize, because you have walked through the fire and you have never given up.  

Forgotten girl, I see you and although you don't see it, you are perfect in all of your many imperfections.  

This was a very personal and intense painting for me.  It was very different for me and I painted her, reflecting all of my feelings and emotions.  I'm sure some of you feel the same way as forgotten girl. Please don't think you are forgotten. You are loved and everything you are going through will shape you into the person you were meant to be.  Keep dreaming and never ever give up.

This piece is was done with charcoal, gesso, pencil, and acrylic.  It measures 16 X 16 X 1.5.  It will be available in an auction I am participating in in late September, early October.

Please send me an email with any questions or comments...I would love to hear from you!
