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
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
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;
