Avola, Red Abstract Contemporary Painting by Elizabeth Chapman

Acrylic on 24" x 24" x1.5" canvas
$450 includes free shipping


I love working with reds, but also find it a difficult color to balance and especially to photograph.  Truth be known, this is/was a painting from 2011 that I have updated.  More like total re-do as I gessoed over the whole painting. It's not such a bad thing. I love the texture that a previous painting brings to a new work.  Also, you don't have the intimidation of a white canvas to begin with as shapes and colors can be seen through the gesso. This inspires ideas, a fresh start and of course when working intuitively one idea leads to the next. Another adventure!

This painting can be purchased from my website: HERE
