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.

Wave Art Seascape, Les Roches & Les Vagues (The Rocks and the Waves)

Wave Art Seascape, Les Roches & Les Vagues original plein air oil painting by Deborah Chapin, shown @ Smithsonian American Art Museum.  An original oil painting by Deborah Chapin was painted on location in Brittany. the original painting "Les Roches & Les Vagues" was exhibited in a one person show at the National Arts Club, and presented in video talk at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.  In this piece I just wanted to paint the waves no horizon no landscape an abstract marine of just water movement. This piece is an original plein air painting (see the original film of me painting it on the Brittany coast). It is a 21 x 34 plein air oil painting on linen canvas. It was presented at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in a talk that I did on plein air painting on the coast of Brittany.

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.
