'Life Cycle' Contemporary Floral Abstract Painting by Elizabeth Chapman"


Acrylic Palette Knife Painting
8" x 8" canvas panel


This painting speaks to me at various levels.  There is first of all the appearance of various levels of depth beginning with the largest floral in the top right quadrant moving to the bottom left then to the top left and ending with the smallest bloom in the bottom right quadrant.  I like the movement this creates!  It also speaks to me about life as it cycles through stages each having a beauty of its own.  The inspiration began from a photograph..... but soon departed as the creative flow took hold!!
