I am really so behind with posting my paintings on this blog. I paint nearly everyday completing 1-2 large paintings/week. It seems as if I keep quite busy with life as well. Once a painting is completed there is the photographing, editing and then listing it on various sites. There is a lot of behind the scenes things taking place with being an artist. This seems to be the one site that gets neglected. When I first began painting back in 2009, blogging was all new to me and I was writing/posting nearly everyday! I'm going to try to do better, but for now...what do you think of this painting?

i had a lot of fun painting it!

If your interested in seeing a complete portfolio that would include paintings that I may have missed posting on this site, visit my website: HERE

Thanks for viewing! and if you've been following since 2009 an extra, extra...extra, thank you!!

Fresh off the easel.  Gallant is the my most recent abstract painting.  Bold and bright color! This one reminded me of a similar style (although the color palettes are different) I have used with the paintings that are posted below.  With this particular style I am working with a limited palette, mixing a lot of variations applied in layered chunks of color.  COLORFUL, in Elizabeth Chapman style!

Modern Expressionistic Abstract Painting "Ingress" by Elizabeth Chapman


Ingress
Acrylic on 30" x 40" canvas

SOLD!


I am happy to have sold this painting to a local business where it will hang to be enjoyed by it's clients.  Over the past years I have had a few places in town that have asked me to hang. I really don't mind as it gets my inventory out from my studio storage (freeing space for more paintings!) and the public is given the opportunity to enjoy the paintings.  This particular painting was one of a group that was hanging at The Specific Source in Springfield, Mo.

I got to know Dr. Nathan because of a dog that I have that hurt his back (nerve damage) leaving him without usage of his back legs. I had been working with and trying some different things when some one told me about this chiropractor that was willing and liked to help animals.  I began taking Monty in (before the regular clientele arrived)  to get his back adjusted and during this time I was asked if I would hang some of my paintings in their business. Of course.  One year later, I went to pick up my paintings in order to give another artist the opportunity to hang there.  Dr. Nathan just couldn't seem to let this one go. SOLD!!

It is so very special to me when I sell a painting in my hometown of Springfield, Mo.

As for, Monty he does from time to time have partial use of his back legs. It can be said that they are better than they were a year ago, but still it has been an ever so slow process. I am still holding out hope that he will walk again. Patience.

Continuing to showcase a few of these that I have done on heavy paper. It is Arches 156lb acid free watercolor paper often gessoed before painting on it.  A friend pointed out to me how it reminded her of the coastline near Sydney, thus the title.  I just love to play with color, shapes, line, etc., it's an adventure for me. Where ever the painting takes you, well that's your adventure!! Enjoy.

Modern Abstract Painting "Gardin" by Elizabeth Chapman


Gardin
Acrylic on 22" x 30" heavy paper

Available

To purchase and/or more information, email me: elizabethchapman@artlover.com

Website: HERE


I keep meaning to get back to painting abstracts in the red color palettes, but the bright summer colors continue to emerge. This is one of a small series of paintings that I have done on heavy 156lb Arches acid free watercolor paper. Price is great for this size, but they do need to be framed, mounted or whatever creative way you might find to display them.  I reminded here of a garden...can you find the tulips? I will initial these on the front, sign on the back.

Sold three large paintings last week! 

Thank you for viewing.
