Ready to Hang
The first brush stroke can be the hardest. Working as an abstract expressionist painter it is the first mark that will intuitively lead me to the next line, color or shape. That is the story of this painting as it began with one color leading to the next, then the next until it felt as if not one more stroke could be placed. The conversation between myself and the painting ended at that point, but will now continue to speak a visual voice to all who view it.
Professional quality (Golden) acrylic paints used and mostly applied with a palette knife on a gallery wrap canvas. The painting continues around the 1.5" depth sides. Coated with an acrylic polymer varnish for added protection. Signed/dated on the back. Ready to hang.
Elizabeth Chapman is a modern expressionistic abstract artist. Her birthplace, Caracas Venezuela, naturally gives her work an element of intensity. She has lived the majority of her life in the beautiful Ozarks of Missouri with her loving husband and family. Elizabeth graduated from Missouri State University with a B.S. in Art Education which she has used as an art educator for almost two decades, but her focus for the last few years is artwork creation. She is a versatile artist in having started with realistic floral watercolors, but has found her forte in the acrylic abstract expressionism realm. You will find a very strong sense of design and composition, important elements in working abstractly. Her modern abstract paintings have been described as vivid, lively and bold with a complexity of layers. These paintings are revelations of her innermost thoughts and feelings. Elizabeth works intuitively and is deeply inspired by music. Her amazing expressionistic modern abstracts have been sold locally, nationwide and internationally. They can be found in corporate settings as well as private collections. Elizabeth is available for commissioned artwork.
