Maine Marine Artist Deborah Chapin is working a series of small paintings on the subject of Sea and Surf painting depicting White Horses of the Sea.  See this portfolio.

Maine Marine Artist Deborah Chapin is working a series of small paintings on the subject of Sea and Surf  depicting White Horses of the Sea.     “White Horses of the Sea 4" at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, is original art, by Maine Marine Artist Deborah Chapin inspired by the poem “White Horses of the Sea”    She is just beginning her exploration of the coast of Maine but it is not her first exploration of a coast.  Deborah Chapin has been painting marine art for 4 decades and many collectors have admired her work worldwide.   She paints complex wave actions as well as the simple wave on a beach pieces.  "I'm just getting the movements of the wave action at Pemaquid Point, she said,"  "Every combination of wave and wind and rock formations will result in different (water) actions."  Pemaquid point is proving to be a rich environment for an experienced eye, with several points of rocks jutting out, large boulders and the ability for a churning action of the water because of a drop level.  It also produces a lot of what she calls slapping back of one wave into another, it proved ideal action for the proverbial white horses.  Spits of water and foam which create the shapes of horses.  See the video clips below.
