Collectors purchase a painting from the project of their choice.  DM me directly for the price of the piece you are inquiring about as Tiers current are monthly fee only.   It is important for you to subscribe to a tier as this is how you receive the notices and passes for new projects.  I will invoice you for the remainder of price of the Painting you buy minus the $25x12 mo you will be charged for the monthly subscription.   Originals range from $2200 - $7500 this year.

Introduction to Patreon - Chapin Studio Logs onto Patreon with VELPme Project

I’m opening up a channel on  Patreon for my exploration of Maine, travels, in paintings, and writings.  Video Exploration Log Painting Maine's Coast (VELP-ME).     I've gotten off to a slow start primarily because I am also building my studio and taking care of an elderly parent but things are getting wrapped up and buffed as we speak.  I am posting several locations at the moment, but for those who would like to support the projects and participate in the future signing up with get us both going.

The Reasons Behind the Page:

Now we enter an age where Patrons have tools to support the individual artist as never before, and artist enter an era where tools of communication have advanced to a new levels.  Patreon is the next generation of crowd funding and is THE way to actually support the arts.  This project will evolve as we go and expand in all types of ways I know as we follow the muse through Maine.    The idea is to really share what I do and what I love.    Your suggestions are always welcome, I will be making a list of ideas and projects to explore so feel free to contribute.

How it Works ~ What we'll be doing:

Patrons can subscribe to Patreon Chapin Page and watch paintings develop and explore the coast of Maine with me.  See the sunrise over the horizon, see the coast in all types of weather and seasons.   Explore coves, inlets and islands from land and boat.
I’ll be exploring Maine as I did France, over the years and logging the exploration as I go. I just wish this technology had been available to do this back then because I hiked the coast, sat on rock ledges and rocky beaches in storms to paint in France, and sat on the deck of pitching trawlers in Australia!   I would like to take you along through the discoveries and paintings as they evolve here in Maine.  As I go exploring the villages and coasts, with boots on the ground and exploration by boat I will expanding what I am able to explore as the project and support develops.   Discover Maine through the eyes of a professional artist with 29 years of doing this type of thing.

Flashback Fridays:

See some of the archives of videos I took the hard way with SVHS films (low res) in Flashback Fridays.   You can see all this as it unfolds from the comfort of home and participate as your choose. This seems to be the way to share these explorations. Clip from Smithsonian American Art Museum Talk - Sea and Surf en Plein Air by Deborah Chapin from Deborah Chapin   I Hope you’ll join me as I discover Maine. I have four levels of participation.  Each painting will be available for sale at the end of the project and collectors  can join by purchasing a large painting from any of the projects.  Bear with me while I learn the ropes of Patreon and videoing in 4k or UHD as I work out the kinks. PS if you have a question  DM me on my Website, or Instagram
