August-October has been a very busy month and along the worries of everyone else I have been brainstorming on how to manage to make it through through the next 2-5 years.  It was clear this summer that markets are in flux and changes are happening in everyone’s lives and artists are no different.  I don’t think we will be thriving but the objective is to make it through this and come out at the other end prepared for the future economy.  Obviously having a website for 20 years has been a real blessing and I have taken all that I have learned and continue to learn to become even better at it as well as expand and diversify my markets. So I have expanded my markets to not only painting but markets where my art can be utilized for various things.  This winter those markets shall be flushed out one by one and hopefully 2021 will be a better year that 2020 has been in all sorts of ways. Over the past 3 months I have developed:

1. the Art Teaches that Series for Kids

2. I have expanded my Photography Portfolio. to include Metal prints, puzzles, cards and a host of other items for art and photography in Gifts from Maine.

3. I am working with a company on developing a wearable art

4. I am re-starting my White Horses of the Sea Series

5. Expanding into Nature videos see Big Screen Video Page at https://gallery.deborahchapin.com/bigscreen/

Instagram News

As some of you may have noted I have been out of the loop here…. It doesn’t mean that I haven’t been busy just that I have been doing more updating through Instagram and Gallery.DeborahChapin.com Lots or work to fill in the sold archives and press pieces as well as new work coming down the pike. Stay in Touch

Here’s what’s happening over the summer oldest to latest:

View this post on Instagram

Hi guys. WIP I stretched a new canvas and trying another longer piece that fits the composition I decided on for the commission idea. But in the meantime… I processed another video clip for you from a pre-dawn excursion in the fog and added a little something. I tried to create the feeling of not knowing what I’d find of groping my way to the shoreline. In the fog things are murky but also dreamlike. Let me know what you think. It’s only a minute and 46 seconds long but still won’t fit up on Instagram so I’ve uploaded it to Patreon if you want to see the longer version. 🙂 Link in my Bio. Or on my website gallery.deborahchapin.com. If bio doesn’t work like Instagram mostly doesn’t it’s just Patreon.com/deborahchapin no mystery. Still free since I’m still working out the kinks. Like the link. Getting in the mood. – – – – – – #enpleinair #pleinair #seascape #contemporaryart #contemporaryartist #maineart #bristolme #pemaquid #videoexperiment #art #mainecoast #VELPme #rockycoast #summertime #artstudio #womenartist @deborahchapin see more about supporting the lighthouses @mainelighthousetrust

New Studio ~ WIP New floral paintings in the works

New Studio ~ WIP New floral paintings in the works ~ Log of work Starting May 26th

Just trying to catch up on the online news…. It is hard it seems these days to decide which painting to work on or should I catch up on the garden, oh and what about finishing the studio… Such great weather is a mixed blessing.  Well I’ve been doing some floral pieces the beginning of this week,  Well this one is all done but the shouting.

Have to tweak a spot or two in the background. Now to find a frame for the show at the #riverartsme #membershow in #damariscottamaine #bristolmaine

continued….WIP I’ve never really thought of tulips as good painting material but I’ve changed my mind  these parrot tulips are just exquisite. They have two tones one is the exterior tone and one is on the interior. So I’m doing a set of these. I worked on the blossoms and then I’ll go back and do the leaves because I think that the blossoms will change and evolve. All pieces are 12×17 size canvases that I had on hand.

Yesterday it was overcast and started to rain ☔️ it’s been raining ever since so just snagged part of one piece.  I’ve discovered a couple of things 1. these tulips start turning black as they age and so they become new tulips and  2. when it is chilly or when it’s going to rain they close up.  They are so beautiful and I’m just beginning to scratch the surface. I want to do a larger piece similar to the Siberian’s that I’ve done before and believe it can be done.

They are supposed to bloom 2 weeks so crossing my fingers. I also am starting a marine …. uh ohhh. Playing hooky from finishing the drywall of the studio I think.

Continued Start of Larger piece:

Well the first two are sketched in on the larger piece that I want to do they all decided to open up at once, of course. So it paid to do a little preliminary work to get the hang of it. You’re never sure if you’re getting it or not you just pitch in there and hope for the best. I’m going to try to do two more before the light changes too much. Had this 24 x 36 canvas ready to go with the background already dropped in which was nice, figure out if I want to keep it that color not later oh my. Another beautiful spring day and we predict to have four straight days with this weather. Have to drop off my paining today as well at #riverarts So busy day.
