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 Plans For more info see the latest news see my Notes from the Studio Below

Notes From the Studio The begin has begun.... start of work on the new portfolio.... I have decided to treat this new adventure of painting in Maine as I would any other trip to a new location.  First I must start with research of locations.  I good old fashioned maps but apparently it is a rare thing in these parts.  I don't like the small little maps I like the 1:24,000 maps printed out slicked up and these become my log of explorations.  So January and February while I was working on repairs and snow bound I was researching where to go and what to see first.  Oh it is so exciting plein air seascapes and coastal inlets to explore.

      As the second front of planning I have the layout for the garden pretty much established.  Yesterday I went out and traipsed through the snow and discovered that I probably have 60-75 feet by 120 feet of planned planting area.  Without all the brush there it's pretty large and I'm thinking I haven't bought enough plants.  So started with a path system to layout out some of the design elements.  Oh well bump it up next year. In the meantime, I'm making progress on the studio conversion.  It's getting ready for the spring building, just hoping I can find the right person to do it.

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
