"Delight" Contemporary Floral Abstract by Elizabeth Chapman



Contemporary Floral Abstract
Acrylic on 20" x 16" canvas

Definitely strayed from the original floral arrangement. This is a painting that I did over the weekend from some flowers that I had bought at the grocery store on our weekly Saturday morning excursion to Dillon's.  I've been finding flowers in the manager's special and bringing them home, arranging them to paint and then we also get a floral arrangement to enjoy!  Smell good too! I also took some great photos for future references, but I was thinking as I was working at how delightful it is to have real flowers to paint from.  It was this arrangement that I began with, but then somewhere about halfway through I departed from the more realistic version and found it to be quite the delight!!!  Enjoy-
