Another painting that I began at a workshop as a demonstration. It was rather intimidating being watched, but helpful to those who participated to be able to actually see the process begin. Not really enough time to follow through, so the painting was finished back in the studio.

Changes. It's perfectly ok to change. Embrace it. This painting began as a floral abstract painting demonstration for a workshop that I did for the Studio 55 Art Guild here in Springfield, Mo. It was a fun day for sure. Two of my paintings that were started there, went on to become finished works. This one changed ALOT, the other one which I will post later still shows those foundational marks. If it weren't for that beginning painting this one would never have become this painting. Can you see the seesaw?!

Fresh off the easel. I am still contemplating the possibility of adding a few dark lines. It's been a difficult decision in deciding which way to present this one.  Here I am showing it as a horizontal, but it looks equally as strong vertically. Hmm.

Melodious Beauty, Contemporary Abstract Painting "Arioso" by Elizabeth Chapman


Arioso
Acrylic on 30" x 48" x 1.5" canvas

SOLD


Ever spent time looking for something and then find that there it was right in front of you the whole time. Kinda what this painting was like for me.  I had spent so much time up close working on it that I just wasn't able t see it's beauty. About to give up, I drew lines in charcoal  with the intent to later come back and work it over.  Wow. There was no way I was going to do another thing to it. The vertical lines did it. It had been there all along. Melodious.

Contemporary Palette Knife Abstract Expressionistic Painting, Custom Order by Elizabeth Chapman


'Little Summer'
Acrylic on 24" x 30" x 1.5" canvas

Available as a custom order on Etsy by clicking; HERE

This painting has been one of my most popular paintings, if not most popular abstract on Etsy.  It was painted for a person who had an interest in the first painting that came out "Indian Summer"., 2009. Later there was a two panel commission, "Better Two" and then there was "Summer Splay" a 48" x 48" in 2013.

Because of it's popularity, I have decided to paint some more of these.  A custom order for a similar  painting to "Little Summer" can be purchased from the listing I created on Etsy by following the link above or email me: elizabethchapmanart@gmail.com

The paint is thickly applied with a palette knife on the canvas as colors are mixed and merged together. Beautiful!

Mixing more grays. Here I am painting with a much more neutral color palette intertwined with pops of color.  This one was painted after having done a series of floral abstracts using lots of bright colors. As I begun, I was thinking about several paintings I had done several years ago "Ablaze" and "Resonate" following a high horizontal composition.

Enjoyed painting the florals, but time to move on to the abstracts and a larger canvas. It's been a while since I've painted a red abstract.  Challenging myself to work with mixing grays here. Harder than I thought it would be.

As happens every Spring we begin to see colors of new growth. yay!! It's very exciting when you live in an area that loses most all of it's color during the winter months. Flowers seem to represent the emergence of color again, the best. So, along with that we see more artist painting florals this time of year....and I'm one of them! Happens every year!

Daffodils as they were popping up a few weeks ago indicating the first signs of Spring, where the inspiration for this painting.  My intention was to begin the painting just as I would any of my abstracts and then find where the flowers where to fit in. Then it was simply a matter of layering enriching the color and contrast.

It is that time of year! yay!  Flowers are beginning to bloom and  who can not help but be inspired by the new growth and colors.  I knew when I saw the orchids that sit in our window beginning to bloom that a painting would come from them. This is it.  No, it doesn't really look like this, but it was what I used for the initial sketch on canvas. From there, the rest was made up. Imagine that.

LARGE Contemporary Abstract Painting "Ultramod" by Elizabeth Chapman


Ultramod
Acrylic on 40" x 60" wrap canvas

SOLD


Painted back in 2013 and just sold! No, they don't sell fresh off the easel, at least not for me. The important thing is to just continue to paint.  Be encouraged that they do in their own time find their home.  Also, it seems, that sometimes the most popular paintings are the slowest to go...go figure.  This one became an extremely popular painting which I did not know at the time that would occur.  I just paint and work on finding a painting's composition, color palette and flow along the way.  It's own voice, so to speak.  Unique.

It brings me much joy to paint and even more to know a work  is going to be well loved!
