Abstract Painting,Contemporary Expressionism Art “Sailor and the Sea II” by Abstract Artist Nijole Rasmussen



  The shining grey raindrops had all of the sky,
  But still decided to fall to the earth.
  To taste the ocean’s waves,
  To dance on the leaves of the trees
  And also to touch my happy face.
  Falling like a little pearls

  Over the landscape of my soul,
  The rain quite suddenly has washed
  Me and adorned the clouds
  Of my morning, coloring
  It in all shades of the majestic grey.   ©  Nijole Rasmussen

Mixed Media Assemblage, "Blue Spirit" by Carol Nelson Fine Art

Blue Spirit, assemblage by Carol Nelson



This is another in my Assemblage Series featuring mini wall sculptures created with found and recycled materials. The circular blue focal point is a metal washer that was painted using alcohol ink, then covered with epoxy resin. The other blue area is embossed aluminum foil painted with Golden Fluid Acrylics.

 The wrinkled rusty looking paper is actually a WWII era waxed paper fragment used to wrap equipment parts for American troops in the field - remember, plastic had not yet been invented. It's awesome to wonder what the circumstances were surrounding this paper.

Contemporary Health Care Medical Art Paintings "TRABECULAE" by Contemporary Realism Artist Carol A. McIntyre




Have you ever thought about what your bones look like deep in the interior? Now, what does a healthy or normal bone mass look like versus one that has been impacted by osteoporosis? "Trabeculae," depicts how the healthy bone density on the left can progress to look fragile with bone spaces producing porosity. Logically, it is easy to see why bones break more easily when we loose our bone mass.

"Truly, Madly, Deeply... Love", Original Mixed Media Painting by Colorado Artist, Donna L. Martin

"Truly, Madly, Deeply...Love"














For some reason, I get on these kicks to create "Heart" work!  Maybe it's because I have a son who was born on Valentine's Day. I also seem to find "heart" shaped objects everywhere I go, and I get inspired.  

Last year, I found this frame with the tin attached, at a summer market. It appears to be an old ceiling tile that they stapled to the inside of the frame.  It was the ideal inspiration, as I love combining old “things” and new artwork.  I knew this would be perfect for what I was thinking about creating with the hearts.  I created a piece of art (heart) for each individual tile.  They are respectively titled "truly", "madly", "deeply", and "love".  The pieces were constructed on 1.5" deep cradle board and attached to the tile.  They are coated with a glossy resin, which makes the colors "pop".  On the bottom of each piece, I added an antique chandelier crystal...well, because I just love some bling and it seemed like that was just what this piece needed.

This piece now has a home in England, but commissions are welcome.

Contemporary Abstract Mixed Media Painting 30/30 Challenge "CORTONA MEMORY" by Intuitive Artist Joan Fullerton



   FRESH OFF THE EASEL....


As I pushed the paint around with no destination in mind, I began to see images of a hill and Cyprus Trees. The emerging shapes reminded me of Cortona, Italy. (I will be teaching there this May.) The warm reddish rust color hinted of rooftops and the warm patina of the ancient city. A pattern of rectangles implied the narrow cobblestone streets, and the quiet shape on the right of the hill could easily represent Santa Margherita Church. My fondness for this Tuscan venue came to life with each brushstroke. 

When turned the photo 180 degrees....I liked it even more...it was still Cortona, but at night...the road to the top of the hill had the Cyprus Trees flanking it, the wall around the city was grey and pronounced, and the light at the bottom of the composition seemed to lift the hill higher! Want to have a life changing adventure with me in Italy? READ BELOW to lean more.

 I am the reason for this morning rain, the reason for this

 To be the rainmaker and abide in clothing myself
 With the garment of the radiant rainbow
 As a God’s promise to my always for beauty longing soul.   ©  Nijole Rasmussen

Contemporary Health Care Medical Art Paintings "A FOCUSED ALIGNMENT" by Contemporary Realism Artist Carol A. McIntyre






These hands are in the familiar pose of operating a camera. Just as a photographer adjusts the focus, we need to assure that we keep our bones -- in this case our vertebrae -- well tuned. All of our gears must continue to operate in order to maintain a healthy life.


What do you see in this painting? Does it spark any ideas for you? Can you find the marble?



Painting is not necessarily in scale in this simulated waiting room.
