It's a ready to hang as seen in the first pic or this painting can be framed as seen in the various settings below. Which is your favorite setting?

Options for displaying an abstract painting on paper

Mounting an abstract to a board

Most of my paintings are created on canvases. I enjoy painting on paper as well. I sell a lot of these abstract paintings unframed, but then I realize that the buyer will then have to find a way to complete the painting for display.  There are several options for collectors. In this video, I am showing you how super easy it is to mount a paper painting to a board. It is then ready to hang. Another option, is to mat and frame. The 11 x 14 paintings are a standard size so they will easily fit into a mat that can then be popped into a frame. No need to have to customize a mat and frame for a painting.

If your an artist you are likely to have all the materials you need to "do it yourself" in your studio.

Interested in seeing more of these abstracts...I thought so!  They can be found in the "small painting" category of my website: elizabethchapmanartwork or click HERE

ABSTRACT PAINTING "Spring Festival" 48 x 48 canvas

Spring Festival
48 x 48 x 1.5 canvas

Free Shipping


Finding homes. I work mostly as an independent artist. What does that mean? Well, it means that you are going to spend more time promoting and learning about the business of selling art than actual painting time. I'm not sure that being an artist who just paints even exist anymore. There are many, many hours that go on behind the scenes. I do have a couple of small galleries that exclusively carry a few of my pieces. But, for the most part, it's me working to get it out, to be seen, heard amongst all the other million talented visual artists! Like a needle in a haystack, BUT it happens, I am here to say that art is sold and homes are found! You may be one of those! I don't post here near as much as I use to as I can usually be found hanging out on Instagram, but things have a way of coming back around. So who knows. Please visit my website: elizabethchapmanartwork.com  If this one has caught your eye...then perhaps another home has been found!🎊

'Quick Blooms' & 'Mixed Bouquet' July workshop at Splatter Art Studio

These are demos from the July "Quick Blooms & Mixed Bouquet" class that I taught at Splatter Art Studio in Springfield, Mo. The bottom was begun with a gesturally drawing from a floral still life and then painted in the same manner. The top was begun as a group collaboration with each student adding a shapes, colors, lines, etc., to each others canvases. (see next pic) Then they were to use their imaginations to find and make the florals out of what was given to them. Mixed Bouquet. The object was to paint quickly and not have time to overthink it. Two paintings in four hours! Phew.

The start for the "Mixed Bouquet" demo.

End of the day creations!

I have taught at Splatter Art Studio once a month for the last year and have had a different theme each time. The month of July it was floral abstracts. Teaching really helps me to think through my processes and have more of an understanding of why I do what I do. I don't teach any particular technique. I'm more into sharing my own thought processes in the hope that it will help others to tap into their own creative mode. This month I painted a lot of floral abstracts which can be seen on my website: elizabethchapmanartwork. It may have had something to do with my thinking about this class! πŸ˜‰
