Just did a new Gallery demonstration of the website it is coming along and archives are being rebuilt along with new books etc.
Had a client from out of the blue contact me with a request of a canvas print of his painting. He’d lost the original painting in a fire several years ago so I will be printing a canvas print for him to hang in his new home. Isn’t it great that you can do such a thing these days. Think of all the master works lost through floods, fire, wars and just age that could now be at least remembered through this means.
Other than that I am working like a demon refurbishing the workshop/studio and have been trying to upgrade things as I go. So purchasing a new scanner for this purpose and proceeding on the massive project of creating my archives in digital format. I sometimes think that people contact you just to remind you to do something NOW rather than later down the line. More soon.
I’ve uploaded the video to my gallery site on the time-lapse video of my irises. The color on this time-lapse isn’t what I would like it to be but there you go, everything is a lot of work. The final painting is located here, which is much more like the final piece. http://gallery.deborahchapin.com/art-on-linen-canvas-floral-artwork-red-velvet-irises/
