Artist’s Statement by Charles W. Reyburn

"Our World is not static. It is forever changing. My solution, these days, is to take my french easel
and head out into that world. I use my wooden palette laid out with 14 to 15 oil colors and I…..
choose a composition….draw… and then… paint (manipulate color). The challenge is to concentrate
(think) and to transfer a large or immense (if it extends to the horizon) scene convincingly onto a canvas
rectangle, 8x 10, 11 x 14, 18 x 24 up to perhaps 48 x 36 inches.

"In our time away from our chosen vocations we often head outside OR remain inside to observe
and explore the world around us. To reaffirm its’ life-giving beauty and awesome powers.
All caught in glimpses in which we are feeling the present-into-the future or are taken into feeling
our past. A painting by hand (and mind) puts you there.

"I grew up in New London, CT. Attended Rhode Island School of Design 1974-78
and hold a BFA in Painting. I presently live in Waterford, CT.  I think of my paintings as
"moments in time” or as Corot called many of his paintings; “souvenirs.”
