ast December, I approached Don over lunch about working with him to select paintings and acrylic sketches from his last decade or so of accumulated works. This selection chosen by Don, would be presented to our collectors and mailing list as the Don Cavin 2020 Collection. We worked on this 2020 Collection in the latter part of December and into January.
In mid January, Don went into hospital for a scheduled operation to remove a small tumour. By the third week of January he was back home, I sent a draft of this blog to him for his review, and he loved it.
Three days later Don died suddenly of heart complications...
Very sad, we miss him a great deal as a friend and a great painter. We held fifteen one-man shows: each show sold out.
The onslaught of the Corona virus has delayed the release of this article until now. During the quarantine we worked with Don’s family towards expanding the original 2020 Collection, as they felt his body of works should be offered to his fans and collectors.
We will be releasing groups of his works over time; the first block of twenty-five paintings accessible on www.buckinghamfineart.com with its original collection chosen by Don. Additional acrylic plein air sketches will also be released soon with the groups of additional paintings.
Those interested in purchasing his work can contact Buckingham Gallery
links under each painting to arrange a viewing and purchase of a desired work. The Final Chapter, is the paintings and sketches Don Cavin left to his admirers and collectors, and to those who discover the treasure of his work.
