Moonrise 16x34 plein air oil on limen canvas by Deborah Chapin

Original Oil, Moonrise, Plein air painting oil by Deborah Chapin

By Deborah Chapin | Jan 2, 2020

Moonlight is a favorite subject of mine.   This plein air oil painting describes the light as it fades and the change from the last light of the day to the first light of night and the shimmering moon casts it magic.  In the fall the moon overlays the sunset creating soft light landscapes and seascapes which enchant the mind and spirit.  This piece was a set of paintings which led up to this piece.  This plein air oil painting was painted on location as the sunset and the moon rose.  It was exhibited in the 2007 Arts for the Parks exhibition and toured through the museum circuit. Signed by the artist.  Contact Us About This Piece please include the title in your subject line.

Original Art, Pemaquid Point at Low Tide, by Deborah Chapin

By Deborah Chapin | Dec 2, 2019

Original Art, Pemaquid at Low Tide, original oil painting on linen canvas by Deborah Chapin, Maine art, Pemaquid Point Rocks, Seascape , marine art, marine artist

“Pemaquid Point at Low Tide”, is original art, a Maine art piece aiming toward painting a moonlight painting in the Fall.   It is part of my VELPme project (Video Exploration Log Painting Maine’s Coast).  This painting shows Mid Coast Maine in one of its many moods, this one being a calm late summer evening as the full moon watch began.   There was a crowd of people ready to drink in the moonrise just a little after sunset.  The next moonrise will take place coincidentally with the sunset.    This is not my first moonrise piece.  I have done at least two other paintings,  one from a plein air series that I did in Black Water’s wildlife preserve, and another I did from a trip to Jackson Hole Wyoming.  Other Original Art pieces and Moonlight Paintings are listed below:

 

About the Process:  I like to paint several smaller paintings, working myself up to larger work, as I learn the subject matter.  Gradually developing a portfolio which expresses the full character of the place.   Pemaquid Point is no different to than one of my favorite haunts in France.  It must be explored and appreciated and allowed to seep in at it’s own pace.   I am not a slam bam thankyou…. kind of artist.  I think of speed as antithetical to art.  I think deeply and like to delve into the nature of the place,  learning the nooks and crannies and developing a deep appreciation of its beauty.   Instant gratification is not my thing.  I have never been someone who thought a cursory look at someplace even counted as having seen something, even as a tourist.   I went back many times, and stayed during long visits of a month or more exploring the culture, the history and the people of a place. This series of plein air and studio paintings are new work added to an already extensive portfolio of 40 years of art.
