My interest has been captured lately by taking an older painting and using it as the foundation in creating a newer version while still retaining some of the older version. I've also been able to see the growth as an artist that has occurred over the years. This one from 2014 is now Available as an ORIGINAL 2019. To see the 2014 version, link: HERE

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!🎊
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! 😉
This is one of my more recent abstract paintings. I'm not on here near as much as I used to be posting my current works. To see a complete portfolio, please visit my website. I can mostly be found hanging out on Instagram. Both of these links are on my side bar. If you have any comments, I would love to hear from you. See you soon!
With a little imagination you might be able to feel yourself visiting a park in this painting. As I was painting, it brought back childhood memories of a park that was close to my grandmother's home in Venezuela. It was often visited!!
This painting was recently completed as an anniversary present!! From him to her! For me, it's for sure working on a more neutral palette. I enjoy doing these as well. Lots of layering and mark making. I'm more than happy to create a customized painting for you as well. Just let me know!
Wanna watch me paint? Link: HERE I have placed several videos on you tube that will show the process of this painting. The first one is a time lapse of those first marks. Second and third videos show the majority of the painting being painted. I did not record the final stage, but hope to do more. They can also be watched on IGTV by going to my instagram bio, elizabethchapman77. Link on side bar.
One of my latest paintings to bereleased. There are many layers of colors, shapes and lines built up under the final version seen here. What you can't see here are the wonderful surface textures that this painting has. My paintings always look better in real. Follow me on instagram: elizabethchapman77 as I post daily pics.
