Modern Expressionistic Abstract Painting "Ingress" by Elizabeth Chapman


Ingress
Acrylic on 30" x 40" canvas

SOLD!


I am happy to have sold this painting to a local business where it will hang to be enjoyed by it's clients.  Over the past years I have had a few places in town that have asked me to hang. I really don't mind as it gets my inventory out from my studio storage (freeing space for more paintings!) and the public is given the opportunity to enjoy the paintings.  This particular painting was one of a group that was hanging at The Specific Source in Springfield, Mo.

I got to know Dr. Nathan because of a dog that I have that hurt his back (nerve damage) leaving him without usage of his back legs. I had been working with and trying some different things when some one told me about this chiropractor that was willing and liked to help animals.  I began taking Monty in (before the regular clientele arrived)  to get his back adjusted and during this time I was asked if I would hang some of my paintings in their business. Of course.  One year later, I went to pick up my paintings in order to give another artist the opportunity to hang there.  Dr. Nathan just couldn't seem to let this one go. SOLD!!

It is so very special to me when I sell a painting in my hometown of Springfield, Mo.

As for, Monty he does from time to time have partial use of his back legs. It can be said that they are better than they were a year ago, but still it has been an ever so slow process. I am still holding out hope that he will walk again. Patience.

Continuing to showcase a few of these that I have done on heavy paper. It is Arches 156lb acid free watercolor paper often gessoed before painting on it.  A friend pointed out to me how it reminded her of the coastline near Sydney, thus the title.  I just love to play with color, shapes, line, etc., it's an adventure for me. Where ever the painting takes you, well that's your adventure!! Enjoy.

I keep meaning to get back to painting abstracts in the red color palettes, but the bright summer colors continue to emerge. This is one of a small series of paintings that I have done on heavy 156lb Arches acid free watercolor paper. Price is great for this size, but they do need to be framed, mounted or whatever creative way you might find to display them.  I reminded here of a garden...can you find the tulips? I will initial these on the front, sign on the back.

Sold three large paintings last week! 

Thank you for viewing.

I just paint! Whatever happens is what happens. This one is a small painting but it has lots of layers (paint) creating lots of surface texture. It wasn't that it was intentional, it's just that it took that long for this painting to emerge. Some are quick to find, other's take time.  I would define it as not only having RICH color, but also a rich surface texture. It can be seen by clicking on the zoom feature in my website or click here to see it. What do you think?!

SO, in titling I turned to my hubby who titles the majority of my paintings. Once in awhile, I come up with a good one. smile. Anyway, often he will asked, 'so, what does it remind you of?' To which I replied, 'can't you see it?!' 'it's like swampy, there's a tree, water, kinda has a southern feel to it'. Immediately, he came up with "Bayou"...and that's why we call him 'title man'!

Often times, people will want to know what an artist's thoughts are while painting. With this one it was with the people that are now fighting to survive in the mess that a socialist government leaning towards dictatorship  has created. Having been born a duo citizen the Venezuelan in me is heart broken for what the people in Caracas are enduring. Prayers for these people and the country are interwoven into each brushstroke of this painting. Pray for Venezuela. May they be uplifted.

Titled "Motif" but Cadbury might just be a better fit. My color palette totally changed on a binge with Cadbury eggs. I don't keep sweet around anymore, but I caved in and bought a bag of Cadbury Eggs this year. My favorites and you know there only available one time of year. So secretly kept them in the glove box of my car. For weeks I had done fine with just 2-3, ok 4-5 a day. I was to about a good handful when I binged on the remainder. Next day I go to continue work on a painting and the color palette TOTALLY changed on me. I stood back and thought, "oh my...it's those Cadbury eggs!" ha

The latest figurative painting completed recently as a commission for my water aerobics instructor, Margaret. Having gone through my website, she fell in love with a painting that I had done years ago of my daughter, Emma.  It reminded her of her own daughter, Tamara. I knew she wanted it to be similar, but at the same time I wanted this painting to have a life of it's own. So, I also worked with the original photograph of Emma and the bike. She also asked if I couldn't perhaps make the skin color just a little darker. As I was painting, I realized that I had never mixed color for black skin. Had to google it! Why had I never done this before? I loved the richness of the colors. There wasn't much skin to cover with this painting but I mixed SO much paint just enjoying the learning process. Thank you, Margaret! Hope your enjoying "Bicycle Girl" up there on your mantel!!
