Abstract Heart Painting "Sweet" by Elizabeth Chapman


Sweet
Acrylic on 12" x 12" x 1.5" wrap canvas

from the "heart series"


This one was inspired from a contact regarding a custom order painting,  The painting was to be done similar to the background of "Menange" with a minimalist black line(s) running through it. As I was working on heart paintings at the time, decided to experiment with that background working a heart into it.  One of my less colorful more elegant abstract heart painting.

I would call this one of my "minimalist" heart abstract painting.  If you were to see the complete portfolio of my work, you would surely understand why.  This one was difficult for me to leave alone, yet I felt like it was completed.  We'll see!

Abstract Heart Painting "Pash" by Elizabeth Chapman


Pash
Acrylic on 8" x 8" canvas
Original





Before

Another small heart for the "heart series, Pash was begun as another painting.  It sat around for a few weeks (bottom image) at which point I decided to take it in the direction of a heart abstract.  The paint on the surface became thick as I worked it with a palette knife.

More love!

Abstract Heart Painting "Butterfly Kisses" by Elizabeth Chapman



Butterfly Kisses
Acrylic on 12" x 12" x 1.5" wrap canvas



Several weeks ago I posted "Fancy" HERE, one of the first heart paintings created specifically for a new gallery that was to open in Sedona, Arizona shortly after the first of the year.  There was to be a large wall with heart abstract paintings.  Inspired and excited I created several new heart abstracts.  Recently, I learned that the lease for this new gallery fell through and so....well, not this time.  Guess I'll continue what I do, offering them from my website.  I'm going to be posting and listing them this week. However, don't be surprised to see them again nearing Valentine's Day!...unless their sold before then.  Ya, better grab one now!

This one is a favorite of mine.  I fought it for a while...ok, quite a while trying to make a large heart the predominant element.  Sometimes, the expectations of previous heart paintings can get in the way of the creative flow.  Not matter, a butterfly was there.  So, I finally decided to give it up and let it be. Perhaps representative of lots of love with butterfly kisses!

"Brave" Earth Tone Abstract Painting by Contemporary Artist Elizabeth Chapman


Brave
Acrylic on 36" x 36" x 1.5" wrap canvas

ORIGINAL 

Can you believe I worked on this one along side the three previous posted paintings? (scroll down) Quite different.  I believe it's ok to give yourself permission to try new things and to play.  Artists need this.  Even though this painting is more along the lines of the style I have developed over the years, there was experimenting with new ideas.  For one, working more with a vertical composition and secondly, using more neutralized color mixed from a limited earth tone palette.  Small steps, but never the less.

Planning to continue working with the paintings on watercolor paper alongside the canvases. Seems to be helping to allow more creative freedom working on several paintings at a time.  I'm wanting to try incorporating/merging drawing and painting from observation with the abstract.  Feel like creatively, I've been in the wilderness lately.  Just needing to remember that it is all part of the process? Expect more changes!

Modern expressionistic abstract "Just For Fun" by Elizabeth Chapman


'Just For Fun'
Acrylic on heavy paper 17"H x 15"W
Available


Might say this one came about as a side kick.  I've had several of these that were started, never finished and just laying around.  Yesterday,  morning I was working on a large abstract. In having reached that point where I wasn't sure where to go with it next, decided to let it go.  Instinctively I reached for one of those never resolved paper abstracts.  Funny how it works sometimes, as I was able to paint ever so freely and having so much fun. 

Refreshing.

Modern expressionistic abstract painting "Aureate" by Elizabeth Chapman


Aureate
Acrylic with metallic golds on 17" x 15" heavy paper

Click on image for larger view

SOLD

I simply love creating and will work with a painting until it reaches that  breathless moment.  A big part of the success of this painting was the painting underneath.  Why do I say that? Because it weren't for that terrible, I can't stand it painting....I wouldn't have gone on and if I wouldn't have gone the beauty of the true meant to be painting would not have emerged. 

Persistence paid off as someone else has fallen in love with this one!  It will be used in decorating a new apartment.  Always love hearing from those who collect my work and what it means to them.  I am ever so thankful for each one of them!

Perhaps it's the cooler than normal August temperatures and the anticipation of the upcoming Fall that has inspired the warmer color palette here.  This one reminded of several past paintings, "Prelude" and later "New Growth" that I had to revisit and reminisce.  Siblings.
