Mixed Media Abstract Art

I’m still struggling with health concerns, but my art is helping me to cope.  So, I completed this highly textured mixed media piece over several days (weeks!).  The techniques and concept were inspired by Karen Hale.  I love her work!  I put my own personal spin on it, with the chipboard numbers, collage, and various textural mediums, oh, and some stenciling too.  What do you think?  I always love feedback….good or bad!  🙂

    Wow, that is a very stunning piece of art, so much interest all over the piece! Thanks for the link to Karen’s website because I was not familiar with her work at all. I adore Jacqueline Sullivan’s abstract art and Karen’s is along that same vein (well, kinda’ sorta’ anyway!). I know your recovery hasn’t been very speedy, but it looks like you have made the most of the situation (as this piece attests!).

    I love the dimension the numbers give. Just to get back into your art and have a vibrant end product should give you a big boost. I have been in the same situation and slowly slowly you will get there. Believe me. All the best to you Kim.

    I rarely think of burying the chipboard pieces beneath pain…always wanting to add them later but I LOVE the way they sneak out at you when layered first. This is a stunning piece.

      Notice your typo? “burying the chipboard pieces beneath pain” (I believe you meant paint) – but it’s ironic, because I am trying to bury my pain with my art! Thank you for your kind comment, Mary!
