Time has escaped me and summer is coming to a close. With that said, it has been a wonderful year at the gallery and it has been so enjoyable to meet and chat with collectors and fellow lovers of art. I am grateful. The gallery is still open every day through October 31 and autumn seems to be a favorite time to visit for so many.
There were a few mornings this summer that I got to sneak into the studio for some painting time and that resulted in me working on a few commissions as well as finishing up a few pieces that I had started this spring. Painting always seems to complete me. Accomplishing a painting and getting it to my satisfaction is a wonderful feeling and sharing that art with others truly is the reason.
I currently am in several galleries across the country and here, close to home I am featured this month at Edgewood Orchard Galleries. This is my second consecutive show and is always a beautiful space to showcase some of my larger paintings. It was another well received show and the opening was a delight for me to meet so many of my collectors, many who came from afar to attend.
Other galleries I am showing in include Lafontsee Galleries, Grand Rapids, MI; Tvedten Fine Art, Harbor Springs, MI; Twisted Fish, Elk Rapids, MI; Globe Fine Art, Santa Fe, NM; Watson McRae Gallery, Sanibel, FL; Edgewood Orchard Galleries, Fish Creek, WI and my own studio/gallery Cappaert Contemporary Gallery here in Egg Harbor, WI.
This September I have already started to think about a new series I want to explore during my off season. I want to explore and see if there are some subtle changes in my style or way of working that excite me. I am really looking forward to this time and some contemplation on my art practices. Stay tuned.
