Dawning, Contemporary Abstract, Modern Art, ORIGINAL Painting, Missouri Artist Elizabeth Chapman

Acrylic on 12" x 12" canvas panel

I just posted this small abstract on the Daily Paintworks where I have been posting many of my most recent small abstracts.  I do have one large abstract on there as well. If you've been following my blog for awhile and at one time has seen and where interested in "Spree" (24" x 48" x 1.5") you can bid on it as well, click here or email me.

 For me sometimes the hardest thing about about creating a new work is getting over my own preconceived ideas of what I want, letting go, going with the flow of the painting and allowing the work itself to unfold and show me the way.  It's a very difficult spot to be in, one in which I am feeling as if it just isn't working, but one in which I become willing to take many risks.  I have learned that in fact this is when it is actually all coming together and I am trusting in the process.

"Dawning" is mostly a palette knife painting.  I say mostly, because I did use a roller at one point to soften up edges and a small brush for detailing spheres in the end.  There is ALOT of texture that was created with the paint itself that I believe is a wonderful enhancement to the painting.  Click on the image itself to see a close up of this for your enjoyment.

If your interested in this painting or any other information regarding my work. I am always happy to answer inquiries, please email me at: Love to hear from you!!  Complete portfolio of my abstract paintings can be seen at:
