(1 customer review)


This Beach Painting, Beach SceneSand Castles is a plein air oil painted on location by artist Deborah Chapin in Brittany France.  
This is painted as a full size painting on location at Diben beach. The two little kids were piling up the sand in an attempt to make a sand castle. They had great fun with their piling of sand while I painted. I don’t they the structure really mattered much. Read More


Did You Know? That with just inflation a painting:
  • in 1982 that was sold at $600, in 2020 is worth $2375?
  • in 1984 that was sold at $2500, in 2020 is worth $8625?
  • in 1987 that was sold at $7000, in 2020 is work $21783
This doesn't account for anything but the value of the $ and nothing added for a lifetime of professional experience and worldwide exhibition history.

This Beach Painting, Beach Scene is an original oil painting.  Sand Castles original painting was painted on location in Brittany. The two children scooping up the sand tried very hard to make the sand look more like a castle but to no avail.  However,  I gave them credit for effort. This piece was exhibited in a one-person exhibition at the National Arts Club in New York.

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.
