Contemporary Health Care Medical Art Paintings "BONE APPETIT!" by Contemporary Realism Artist Carol A. McIntyre






As I continue to explore the concept of bones, this social statement came to my mind late one night. I could not resist. And because I drew the hand and its skeleton many years ago, it seemed appropriate to bring it back into my work.

Hopefully this image will help deter you or others from continuing the addiction to soda.

Would you like a print of "Bone Appetit?" Go to FineArtAmerica.com to purchase the size and substrate (e.g., canvas, acrylic, paper, metal) that meets your needs. Note cards (5x7), throw pillows and phone covers of this image can also be purchased on this site.

"Rocky Mountain Dusk" by Karla Nolan unframed palette knife oil painting




This is a larger painting, 16"x20" unframed.  It is the quintessential Rocky Mountain scene, so typically Colorado.  If you want to get an idea of what it is like to live near the mountains, just look at this painting, I think you'll get the hang of it!  It really can be dramatic as the last rays of the sun appear over the forthcoming mountain silhouette.

“The Road Less Traveled”, Original Mixed Media Painting by Colorado Artist, Donna L. Martin

"The Road Less Traveled"


The finished piece!

I've been wanting to create an elephant in mixed media for quite a while.  I have been admiring Tracy Verdugo's work and I love the elephants that she creates, so that was the inspiration for this piece.  I am actually fortunate enough to be attending one of her workshops in only 7 more days!  I am beyond excited and cannot wait!

This is how it started.  I gessoed a piece of 20 X 20 cradle board.  Then I added texture with molding paste and stencils.  I also added some molding paste to the elephant's trunk and head.  I had some textured paper that I love and decided to add some of that to her ears.  I then gessoed over the molding paste and the paper on her ears.


Here you can see I started adding some paint.  I used Golden's Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold and Burnt Orange.  I'm all about the Turquoise lately, so I threw that in too.




Now for the scary part...starting on the elephant.  I had her sketched out and I started adding some paint.  I mixed Paynes Gray, White, and Anthraquinone Blue, and a little of the Turquoise to get a blue-gray color.  I wanted her to tie in with my background.  It needed more darks, so I added some Van Dyke Brown.






Here I started adding some of the Van Dyke Brown to the textured area in the middle.  I didn't want it to be one solid brown color, so I added some water to fade out some of the brown tones in the middle of the texture.





This part of the piece had me stumped for days and days.  I could not figure out what color to do the bottom of this piece.  It had such nice, nice texture from using the stencil and I didn't want to mess it up.  Finally, I gave in and told myself "who cares if I mess it up, I'm just doing what I like".  So, there again, I used Turquoise and smudged in some of the Anthraquinone Blue.





I had some gorgeous, gorgeous paper that tied into the colors behind my little elephant.  I tore out a border and added it directly under the brown textured border for a pop of color and to tie in with my background.

I also felt like the bottom of this needed to be distressed and not so "in your face" with the blues.  I took some alcohol ink and some of the Van Dyke brown and punched it in under the paper border.  Then I hit it with a spray bottle of water to make it run into the blue.  Fun!!  



So just when I think I'm done, done, my husband, who is an Engineer by the way, takes a look at her.  He points out that her head is too much of a globe shape and that her tusk was going in the wrong direction.  As much as I hate to admit it, he was totally right.  Had to make some slight changes, but here she is.  She is all finished and I LOVE HER!  The only thing left to do is finish her off with resin.





I titled this piece "The Road Less Traveled" because that's how I want to live my life.  I never want to be afraid to take risks and take chances...sort of what I did with this piece.  It can be scary for sure, but let go and see where it takes you. You may totally surprise yourself!

This piece is still available...fresh off the easel.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or if you are interested in giving her a home!  I would love to hear from you!

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.

KMD2996 Night Vendor by Denver Colorado artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (6x6 oil, France, Aix en Provence, urban oil painting)

I have not posted in months!!!! Between commissions, the holidays and just wanting to take a break from my painting life I have let my posting fall by the wayside. I am back now and setting a goal to post once or twice a week. This scene was found while traveling in France quite a few years ago. It has been in my folder of favorite images that I have set aside to paint for quite some time. We were looking for a place to have dinner when I came across this scene as the sun was setting and evening setting in. The scene drew me in immediately as the hush of evening comes on. 6"x6" original oil unframed $125 + $10 shipping and handling See more paintings on my blog Visit my website Daily Painters of Colorado
