New Works: "The Calling Unknown"


I think this has to be one of my favorites from among Charles' most recent paintings. The power of the pose and the energy evoked by this painting's attitude belie the focus and simplicity of its composition. A friend has even recently described it as "electrifying."

I sometimes catch myself leaning forward as I look at it, almost as if I'm reaching with him and can feel that unseen pull of the calling unknown.
