Floral abstract painting inspired from a bouquet of flowers picked from a local CSA farm.  The colors were so rich contrasting against the white flower, that just seemed to be reaching out to say hello.

Challenging myself to use a color that I have been avoiding for years. I'm not sure what happened as I was using Orange a lot when I first began painting abstractly. In the back of my mind I'm wondering if it doesn't have something to do with the time I was trying on an orange outfit, looking into the mirror I thought I looked like a pumpkin. I've not bought orange clothes either. Anyway, decided it was time to give it up. I've spent some time working with orange and am seeing myself beginning to use it again. yay! I do love the way it pops.

Modern Abstract Painting "Impetus" by Elizabeth Chapman


Impetus
Acrylic on 36" x 48" canvas

SOLD

More abstract paintings and now prints are available from my website: HERE


Now and then a painting of mine will sell fresh off the easel. This is one of my latest, Impetus.  I had it posted on Instagram and sold within four hours. Can I not just have that happen every day?!! No, it doesn't work like that, but what a joy it is when it does. Actually, every painting that sells however way the timing works is one that brings me joy and thankfulness.  For several reasons.  One being that it is my income and for that I am thankful.  Secondly, it is a joy in knowing that I have so connected to someone through the gift of creativity that they are willing to spend their hard earned money to own and hang the painting in their home to be loved and admired.  Not all will be sold and not who view my work are purchasing it, but if it brightens some one elses day then that makes me happy too.

Enjoy!

"Just keep taking chances and having fun." Garth Brooks


Being a creative is all about taking chances and having fun along the way.  I really don't know any other way there is to be original than being willing to be yourself.  To let go.  Remember the song from just a few years ago...'let it go, let it go'   Definitely easier said than done. I was reminded of this while painting this morning. It seems like the painting really begins to take on a life of it's own once I let go of all expectations and that includes my own as well.  The crossing over where the creative mind takes over and it feels like your on autopilot. Taking chances and having fun are happening right before your eyes.  Oh sure, there are always negative thoughts to be dealt with. I have found that most usually when I get to thinking that things aren't going so well, what an ugly painting this is is usually when it is actually working out pretty good. Step back, get away and come back before deciding. You might just surprise yourself! I do.


have fun...and enjoy! elizabeth

Abstract Painting "Breakthrough" by Elizabeth Chapman

Acrylic on 22" x 28" canvas

I'm looking at this one and trying to remember how it began. I can tell you that it changed a lot from it's original starts. Kinda of reminds me of a painting from a few years ago, Simple Things. Not so much the color but the composition and it has already shown interest. Simple Things ended with a sad story. The only painting of mine that ever got damaged in shipping and I've been selling online since 2009. It was insured and FedEx was wonderful with how they handled the claim.  Always take pictures of the damage should this ever happen to you. Although I was happy to be able collect on this claim, it was such a major disappointment to me that the buyer was not going to be able to hang this painting in her home. It was one of two paintings she purchased from me that she had spent years searching for in order to pair up.  In the end, it all worked out.  Paintings are securely packaged, faced, wrapped with bubble wrap and strong cardboard for making the boxes and of course, insured. I always take a deep breath when dropping one off to be shipped knowing that the purchase is not complete until there is a safe delivery. 

thanks for viewing! elizabeth

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!
