Thomas Kapsalis

                    Thomas Kapsalis  Table In A Box  1073  oil on canvas  12" x 9 3/4"
  I remember Kapsalis at SAIC in the 70s as a caring, mild mannered professor in the painting department. I did not really come to appreciate his work until much later. I think it's wonderful how we develop our taste, likes and dislikes as we grow older and hopefully wiser. Thomas Kapsalis is over 90 now and to the best of my knowledge still painting in Chicago. I now wish I had gotten to know him better but like most grad students I was lost in my ego and thought I was too cool.
