Much Appreciated Barbara!

Yes, Charlie -- at a striking and fun piece! l/f

Thank you Andrew!!! Some of my 'crazy artist' period.

...yes, cool brushwork indeed- also just darn good. Nose/Phall-- nah, I wont say it....

Charlie. I love the brushwork and energy of this piece!!

Glad you like it. Makes me smile.

Charlie, very fun and expressively! It should be a series of works. Great idea! Next may be Picasso and his cubic model. Fav and tweet - of course

Thank you, Bill.

Very cool Charlie!!

Ahh...then It's the drawing behind it all. I was trained by an old draftsman in college. " Line, Line, Line." was all he preached. "It's all about the line. he would say, "Gestalt." It was a 3hr. each day model drawing class. Thank you Vladamir.

The way your expressive execution of the painting impacts me personally. Although, I think a painting can show very subtle emotion and express it with a lot of silence with very limited palette and without any screaming color effects, and still such a painting can have powerful impact on the viewers.

Thank you. In what way do you see power...emotion, expression??


Thanks Johny.

:) crazy stuff I love it.

Thanks Mary, a fun piece to do.

Thanks, Allen. Much appreciated.

Artist's Description

En route to his studio Matisse with goldfish in hand summons his imagination and his goldfish to almost choke on one of them.

About Charlie Spear

Charlie Spear

Charlie Spear was born in 1948 in the Midwest. The era of Modern Art was in full swing with the Sixties generating an artistic smorgasbord of art styles and new media. Much of his early career was spent learning about art through teaching art in H.S. and College. Exploring the art media's physical qualities is an important element in his style coupled with a love of an impressionistic drawing style. The result is a charged surface of automatic line energy and raw color expression. His work is a reflection of familiar and even common events in his life which connects him with the larger population of earth's dwellers. When I paint and draw, just enough concrete imagery remains, to call the idea I express as Illusary Prose....
