Another oldie but goodie...



King Lear grieves over Cordelia Oil on canvas 30" x 36"

I hate to do this, but it has been an extremely busy week leaving me no time to produce any new artwork. One of my sons suggested I keep an "Oldy-But-Goody" file handy for such occasions.

So I give you the second part to my King Lear series.

Holy Toledo Chuck!
The emotion is so vivid... the lighting so luminous and soft yet intense at the same time. This is really quite breathtaking. From your mind's eye to brush to canvas... I am speechless!

Chuck, this is off topic but I really like the new self portrait!

Chuck Rose said...

Hey Lindsay. Ain't it great! Actually, it's not a self portrait though. It is a portrait that Laura did of me when we hooked up with some other art blogger in Richmond not to long ago.

I only wish I could capture a likeness as effortlessly as she does.

Laura said...

Gosh, this is breathtaking. More, more! *applauds the maestro*

This one is really good Chuck.....hey next time you go back into the "Oldie Goldie Stockpile" How about posting the Horses Painting you did for Mom.....Ask's your "Oldie Moldie" Brother.....Always one of my favorites you did.

Hey ROR,
What a great idea. Can you believe I don't have photo of that?! And I'm afraid to ask Dad whre it is. Do you have any idea?

ROR said...

I assume Dad has it? I'm sure Sis would know....I think she was there when all was packed. It is an awesome painting and i'm sure the other's would enjoy seeing it.

When i first got here, i thought, wow... you must be busy. You decided to post a photograph instead of your work!!!!!

I will be back often to study the hands on this...

Simply amazing!

Chuck Rose said...

Funny that you say that Harry. His right hand was one of my turning points in painting. I felt like I had finally painted somrthing with weight and volume.

Amanda said...

Amazing. Ok, we need to schedule a NY summit so you can teach me how to do this. Great work!

Chuck Rose said...

Amanda, between the two of us, you are the teacher here. But thanks for the lovely compliment. As I write this I am struggling witha sketch of a waterfall I saw in NC.

We'll see what happens. But a New York summit would be grand. How far are you from the Catskills?

Oh my...this is so wonderful! His hand looks like you could just reach in and take it. Even down to the crookedness of his little finger. Bravo!!!
