The New ChrisBeachamPaints

I first created a web page eight years ago. I haven’t updated it much over the last couple of years for many reasons including not painting. (The not painting part is due to limited studio access, time, lack of ideas, moving three times, etc.)

Now I have some ideas and the Brooklyn studio is nearly ready. So I made the decision to update the site and move it to a better and more flexible platform. I developed this new site with WordPress and the Twenty Fourteen theme.

Due to the many moves and the attendant downsizing I gave away the majority of my art. Friends, neighborhoods, family, the couple who bought our townhouse, and the bartender at the cafe/bar across the street ended up with most of it. After a while it was not really hard to get rid of these things that I had toiled over. It became liberating and it helped that nearly all went to people I care for. Some of the pieces in the gallery below are still available but others are long gone. Click on the gallery to see larger versions.
