2018 Studio Build in Maine

I put together a little photo journal of the progress in the studio build 2018.  It’s amazing how fast this year went by and how much has changed but I am so looking forward to being at the easel again and  working on my 2019 PlansFor more info see the latest news above.

Notes From the Studio:  It’s January and the beginning of a new year.  2018 was a trial by fire and a few other things and I knew it would be a hard move so I was mentally ready and have been working very hard to get as much done on the studio and house before the new year. This year will be another packed year and I am excited.  I’m finally getting some heat in the studio space, I think, so I can start to work even if the space isn’t remotely finished yet.  While the work on the studio build continues the checking of equipment and preparation for painting begins and I have been painting in my head furiously so dying to get it down on canvas the projects I’ve been planning…. finding the materials needed etc.   I also can’t wait to see how my experiments in the garden will work this year and am furiously laying out what remains to be planted in April using Piet Oudolf’s method of mapping outlined in the book “Planting a new perspective”.   I highly recommend this book. Things are happening and it is a bit like waiting for a cake in the oven just waiting to see how it comes out 🙂 turning on that oven light every 5 minutes.  So far I have a host of new plants coming in.  It is amazing how many plants are zone 3-5 which is what I’m selecting from.

In between all that I’ll be taking excursions around the coast, mapping out areas. I am planning on doing video some of which I’ll post on my Instagram during my explorations, talking to people and learning as much as I can before the earth begins to thaw.    Several collectors have made plans to visit this summer so things are cranking up. In the meantime stay warm…

Painting Gallery of Deborah Chapin

This is my online Painting Gallery and I will soon introduce New Studio / Gallery with new Plein Air Paintings, Marine Art, Expanded Nature/Underwater Portraits and Contemporary Fantasy Portraits in the next phase of my career.

I have always pushed my art to the next level.  I want to improve upon what I have already done.  It is for this reason that my work has evolved over the past 37 years through so many subjects.

I will be building my new brick and mortar studio gallery and opening it to the public as soon as is possible.   If you would like to more info and be kept in the loop as we build, contact the Studio ASAP and subscribe to our latest News
