The Major Raffle Prize: Cool Waters (16"x20")

The major raffle prize is an original painting by local artist Chuck Caplinger. With a commercial art career dating back to 1960, Mr. Caplinger, a native Texan of German and Cherokee Indian lineage, relocated from Houston, Texas, to California in 1980, where he operated Caplinger Studio in Hollywoood. In 1997 he moved to Twentynine Palms, CA, where he established his world headquarters--Desert Art Studio & Gallery. Here he concentrates on oil portraits, desert landscape and wildlife painting, and murals of the Southwest. Chuck Caplinger's paintings and portraits have been represented in public and private collections, group and solo gallery exhibitions, murals in Southern California and Texas, and featured in Southwest Art Magazine. His "Tribute to Marilyn", a 3'6" x 8' mural of the life of Marilyn Monroe, was featured in the Hollywood Entertainment Museum in Los Angeles, CA (2001-2006).
