New Work: "Standing Nude"

This piece was painted entirely from life within a limited time frame. It's always amazing to me how Charles can convey the most complex information with just a few brushstrokes. The structure of the model, as well as the depth and atmosphere of her surroundings, have been distilled to their essence.

New Work: "Incense Burner"

In between working on some larger pieces, Charles recently did a series of small paintings. This little gem was one of them.
