Charles Wysocki – Master Painter of Americana

I was going through my WP Reader and came across a post by Impromptu Promptings about a Charles Wysocki puzzle she had framed. BAM! I hadn’t heard that name in years, I love his early American Folk Art, his oil paintings from Beach life, (Sea Captains Wife series) and his animals, especially his cat tales.

Sadly Charles died in 2002 (Born 1928), but his artwork will forever live on, I have a coffee table book of some of this work, I need to go find it and ponder the wonders of these pages again. His work mostly depicts early New England rural scenes, as well as grander art works in oil.

Thank you for reminding me of a wonderful artist…..
