The art is protected by glass and the colors are vivid and bright.

About the Artist...
“My love is for patterns. My interest is fitting them together,” Charles explains his colorful patchwork painting as early American life in New England, Pennsylvania and the Old South.

Born in Detroit in 1928, Wysocki enjoyed an active and happy boyhood which seems reflected in the spirit of his work. After studying at the Art Center School of Design in Los Angeles, he began his career as commercial artist in Detroit. He soon abandoned it however, for the more independent life of free-lancing. Returning to California, he married and established his home there.

Chuck and Elizabeth Wysocki have a great deal in common. They share an art background and the ethic of hard work. They have succeeded in capturing the rare sense of serenity that results from being content with the simple things in life, for which he gives his wife much of the credit. Vacations spent in New England have enhanced this feeling. Browsing through the historic countryside, collecting old brass and pewter , chests and cocks, they envision an earlier, slower paced life style in time with their own thinking and philosophy.

Such are the influences that have combined to develop Wysocki’s personal style of painting and choice of subject matter. He is now in that exclusive company of artists whose work sells as fast as it can be produced. Winner of more than 50 awards, he has been in major group and one-man shows from coast to coast. His career and reputation is in full swing.

“I consider myself a painter of Early American Life,” he says. “The people in my pictures are country folk, simple in manner and happy in their activities. If some naivete appears in my work, it is because it was planned that way and is undoubtedly a desire to live that way myself.”
