Abstract Marine, Meanders of the Sea I by Deborah Chapin original plein air oil painted on site at dawn. Colors: blue greens orange and pink. This is a painting that was painted on location at Dawn 24 x 40 plein air painting. The objective was to capture the meanderings of the tide as it came in at Dawn and the lighting effects. Each painting that I did in this series over a period of time had different title affects different flood stages at Dawn and different lighting of course because each day is different. It’s an abstract realism painting and the essence of what I’ve tried to capture each day. An original oil painting by Deborah Chapin was painted on location in Brittany. the original painting “Meanders of the Sea I” was exhibited in a one person show at the National Arts Club.
About the Brittany Beach Paintings: I painted 7 years in France from 1991-1998 5 of those included projects painted in Brittany France. I had continuous showings of these works each year as well as work from other locations in France during this period. I loved the Brittany coast and in particular the rugged surf and coastal pieces but also the tranquil nature of peace and rest associated with the beach. In painting over 150 original oil paintings which included abstract marines, coastals, harbor scenes, sandy beach paintings I also painted a significant number of scenes with people, houses and local life.

I invented the blue dot reserve for collectors who saw a painting at the show preview that they wanted to purchase, so that they could bring a spouse or friend to see the piece before purchasing. The piece would hold for the first 15 mins into the show opening. Blue dots were applied on a first come first serve basis. Once the show started if someone else wanted to buy the piece the blue dot collector had the right to purchase the piece or the blue dot was removed and the next purchaser was free to purchase. This eliminated a lot of acrimony when collectors are vying for the first dibs on paintings.
My first experience with this phenomenon was at the Greenwich Workshop Galleries shows during a “Of Ships and the Sea” exhibit when Graham Stiles was the director. He had a number of collectors come in for an early preview for work and those collectors would be able to buy paintings during the preview. While that’s great for the artist in the gallery it isn’t particularly fair to novice collectors who would be furious when at the opening they saw red dots. So the blue dot eliminates this problem and everybody relaxes a little. All is more fair and open and anyone can put their blue dot on a piece to hold it while they bring their spouse, aunt and uncle and whomever and that way they know they’re sure of their purchase. A collector does have to buy it within the first 15 minutes of the show with a preview blue dot and collectors would come by and say is that painting being bought and if I call out and say who’s blue dot is this and they’re not there they lose out but they’ve been given a fair shot and most the time it works out really well for everybody. Everyone gets what they need and they want and then the next round those collectors that didn’t come to the preview and put a blue dot on a piece are aware that they can do it and so then they do.
during my shows at the Audubon could also use a blue dot to hold a piece while purchasing. it eliminated a lot of confusion and sell out shows made the artist happy.About the Artist
