Guest Artist at Chapman Gallery Carmel




For anyone who has wondered about my 300lb arches hot press paper surface and durability, the display at the Chapman Gallery is a great place to see and feel the rugged surface of the best paper I have found for plein air painting.

The Chapman Gallery is located at 7th and Mission in Carmel by the sea and is known as one of the most charming  galleries in Carmel. If you get the chance to visit please say hello to Dean, Joanna and Marissa for me.
The Chapman Gallery features the work of Keith Lindberg , a contemporary oil painter with a passion for color and does exquisite museum quality framing and restoration.
