Internationally renowned, multi-award winning artist and oil painter Charles Kapsner has transformed the second chapter of his life to use his skills, gifts and talents to highlight the United States Military. He has focused on bringing connection and awareness to the strong military presence in his own home state of Minnesota. With his high level of research expertise he has quickly become one of the most sought after artists for drawn military portraits. patriotic murals, and service persons memorials.


I am deeply grateful and appreciative of Charles. His remarkable combination of artistic skills, military connections, and understanding of loss enabled him to create a masterpiece that will resonate within our family for generations to come. Not only did he capture the true essence of my loved one, but he also imbued the painting with profound depth, meaning, and perspective throughout my personal journey. His genuine passion for his craft is evident in every layer and brush stroke, and now this painting has become an integral part of my story and my connection with my father and the military.

Serving our country takes on various forms, and Charles's contribution lies in reminding us of the service and sacrifices made by others for the sake of our enduring freedom. His talent and dedication are truly a gift and a service to our country.

Charles, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to you. Thank you for touching my life in such a meaningful way.

With sincere appreciation,
