A surprise project to the staff of Mostly Serious moving from downtown Springfield, Mo into their new office spaces in the Galloway area. I was free to create an abstract painting with the only stipulation being that it be my interpretation of Galloway. I spent some time in the area, took a few pics and began tossing ideas around in my head as to how I would approach this painting. Often, when I do a commission I feel as if the painting is completed long before I begin painting as I have already painted it over and over in my head. Here I couldn't decide to go with the new construction or the softer natural organic almost Monet type feeling I was getting from a neighboring park. It finally came to me that I could combine both. Duh. I'm an abstract painter! But how? Well...this is it!!! "Stream Valley" I feel SO honored as a local artist to have been asked to create on of their first pieces. THANK YOU!!

This painting will eventually be stretched on stretcher bars with a 1.5" depth sides. It is a canvas that was secured to the wall. Markings can be seen where the 48 x 48 edges of the painting will be seen. It will be shipped in a tube. Message me if interested in a commissioned piece.
There's a smile followed by a celebration that takes place when an artist has completed a painting! That moment. I'm very happy with this one. I often get asked "how do you know when a painting is finished?" For me, it's when i feel as if I just can't add one more color or mark. Sure, I've crossed that line before and..hey it's ok we're just off to the making of another painting. It will work out. A painting can have many lovely places to be done at. This is just where I have chosen to be be. Now time to sit back, enjoy and celebrate!! Cheers! 🍷😊.

I'm a summer type of person. I LOVE summer. The smells, sights and pretty much everything about it. That is what this painting is all about, my crush on summer. Also, there are many more this size on my website, if you care to take a look. These are sold unframed. Enjoy!!
I painted this one just shortly after getting home from a road trip from Springfield Mo to Buffalo New York where we went to see Niagara Falls. There was a lot driving and scenery to take in. Wonderful times. The two bottom paintings where actually painted while on the trip and sold just as soon as they were posted. However, this one is still available! But, for how long?!

This is one of three painted works while on a road trip from my hometown to Niagara Falls and Toronto, Canada. I have lived my entire adult life in Springfield, Missouri. It is a part of my heritage. I totally understand and love the mid-western culture. What most people don't know about me, is that ingrained in this gal from the Ozarks is a Hispanic heritage from a childhood that was mostly lived in Venezuela. I am equally as comfortable and at home in a multicultural environment. That is what I have found here in my visit to New York and Toronto, Canada. Today was a most beautiful day spent in Kensington Market-Toronto. This one is for you! I see a world that is happy, friendly and where people love one another. It has much color! I believe we choose what we want to see. Hope yours is a colorful world too! Although, this painting as sold there are many more of color on my website: elizabethchapmanartwork
Gotta love the color and texture on this canvas painting with a floral feel!!! I am just sorry that it can't all be captured in a picture only experienced in real. A painting that is sure to brighten up any room. Enjoy!!💙💜
I enjoy trying and working on different surfaces. The canvases are the most practical as having a painting that is then ready to hang. Those that I do on paper will require framing or a way to display them on the wall. The surface is just as durable as that of a canvas. They may be placed under glass but don't necessarily require it. I do use quality acrylics and finish with several coats of varnish. Magnet frame boards is one of the newest trends and most economical. It's basically two strips of wood with magnets in them. One set is placed at the top of the painting and the other at the bottom. That's it! Ready to hang.
