Chuck Prudhomme’s artist statement:
A Storyteller with a Brush
As an oil painter I am interested in documenting and sharing a moment in time of that space between mankind and nature.
I travel extensively looking for that ray of breaking light, a weather beaten factory, an old dairy farm , a vibrant street scene or a dramatic coastal sunset.
I am primarily a plein air painter where I attempt to capture the spirit of the place in a loose painterly fashion rather than a photo realistic replica. I enjoy bright vibrant colors and thick paint application where one can see the brush strokes and feel the energy of what caught my eye to begin with.
I am a story teller with a brush.
