There he operated Caplinger Studio in Hollywood. His portraits and paintings have been represented in public and privatecollections, in group and solo gallery exhibitions, murals in Southern California and Texas, and his work has been featured inSouthwest Art Magazine.This is a type of painting called a mural and it was worked on my Chuck Caplinger in 2013 specifically for Shafter's 100th yearanniversary. He used NOVA color, water-based acrylic, and UV rated. This mural is located in the intersection of downtown(Central Ave) and Highway 43 in Shafter, CA where everyone can see it.Section 2: AnalysisWhat stands out the most from this mural are the bright colors he used, specifically for the three paintings in the middle. That isthe Cinco de Mayo dancer, steam-driven tractor, and farming / agricultural.
The Cinco de Mayo dancer is significant because every year Shafter has a Cinco de Mayo festival where many gather at the parkto enjoy the parade, carnival games/rides, and food booths. The main attraction always ends up being the dance performances.
