New Works: "Etude - Grecian Ewer"

This beautiful little gem is another example of Charles' vibrant and lush brushwork. The ewer so lucky to be the focus of this painting was brought back by Charles' mother years ago after one of her multiple trips to Greece. She was a enthusiastic globetrotter! (10 x 8, oil on panel)

Both this painting and "Etude - Autumn Berries" are currently on display at The Winsor Gallery in McDonough GA as part of their Tiny Treasures holiday exhibit through December 31.

New Works: "Etude - Autumn Berries"

Charles painted this lovely little piece just in time for the holidays. In fact, I'm debating using it for our Christmas card.

The overall cool feel of the fabric with the touches of warm in the berries and dried leaves are both echoed in the reflections and variations on the surface of the vase. The last berries of autumn captured with lush brushwork. (10 x 8, oil on panel)

Oil Painters of America Eastern Regional Exhibition

Charles' beautiful still-life painting "Study in Blue" has been accepted into the Oil Painters of America 2009 Eastern Regional Exhibition of Traditional Oils. This prestigious show is being hosted this year by the Corse Gallery & Atelier in Jacksonville Florida.

The opening reception is this Friday, November 20, and the show hangs until December 23. OPA exhibitions are always must-see events, and if you're anywhere near the area, I highly recommend stopping by. The exhibition is also presented on the gallery's website.

This is the 4th OPA exhibition that Charles has had the honor of being juried into. Membership into the organization is itself juried, and member artists from the entire eastern half of the nation vie for space in each year's Eastern Regional. Founded in 1991, the OPA and its 3200+ members are dedicated to preserving and promoting excellence in traditional representational fine art.
