I am working on two main portfolios at this time. One is a series of underwater pieces portrait mostly and a completely new style although it has roots in my marine work and the second is beach and seascapes. I have returned to what I love to paint almost exclusively. I am accepting commission work and have created a service form to help collectors get started in this. You can see and use the form at please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions through my gallery at http://www.gallery.deborahchapin.com
