Indigo Futura Five, abstract mixed media painting by Carol Engles

17x23 watercolor with pastel, oil pastel, water soluble crayon and ink on paper. This really is a mixed media piece don't you think? I have no idea where these come from! Possibly from space cartoons I watched as a kid!

It looks like a city with some hills- kind of like Cincinnati. Very cool!

Thanks Sharmon!
These are fun for me to do. And you're right! I think of Frank Lloyd Wright style buildings along with modern ones in the hills when I do these. I would love to visit Cincinnati and meet you. My friend lives in Louisville and we have visited her a couple times and my husband's cousin lives in Cincinnati, so we would could all get together!
