Mesmerize, Modern Contemporary, Original, Abstract Painting, Expressionistic, Missouri Artist Elizabeth Chapman

Acrylic on 36" x 36" x 1.5" gallery wrap canvas

For whatever reasons I just can't seem to find the words to describe this painting, other than their was a flow that occurred in which their was a total consumption of the moment.  Captivated and mesmerized by it.  I like to think of it as a gift from God, the creator as His Spirit moves through me and as I respond with visual elements that speaks a language to others.  I believe that art does this for others too.

I received a comment last week that just so spoke, encouraged and confirmed to me that these abstract paintings really do speak.  This person had just found my blog as she was standing watch with her father in a hospital and the paintings had given her something that was helping her.  She had told me to keep painting.  This touched my heart to know that art was speaking to someone else's needs.  I hope that all is well.

Hopefully, I've been able to communicate some understanding here... I think Henry Matisse said it best..."Let the art speak for itself"

Beautifully expressed, both the painting and the insights. It is still amazing to me that our art speaks to others, even complete strangers in profound ways...truly the mystery of His image within us calling out...
