Abstract Artist: Elizabeth Chapman
The journey begins with a blank canvas; believing in faith that a painting will emerge. The first marks are made and the dialogue has begun. Responding instinctively; colors, lines and textures bring life to the canvas. Music often strikes the chords of inspiration, drawing out the deep emotions that become a work of art. This universal language is used as personal communication to the viewer. It brings me much joy just to be the brush in the Master Painter’s hand and to realize that His creations are made to bring great joy to all. My paintings are a form of song, dance and praise in response to the beauty of life.
