Ahem, hello again…


Charles Weed is an American painter who studied in Minneapolis and Florence.  He’s married to Louse Camille Fenne, who is also a gifted painter.  I’m personally more drawn to his landscapes, but his figurative work is very strong too.  He’s managed to carve out a distinctive look to his work without, it seems to me, forcing a style for the sake of it.  A feathery shimmering light unifies his figurative and landscape work.

  4. The trees in Charles Weed’s work are so reminiscent of works of Ivan Shishkin.

    Specially the framing of the trees and the hide-and-seek of sunlight filtering through the top of the trees. Personally it was interesting to see the use of the same techniques, separated by a century, in two different schools – one more impressionist and the other in traditions of realism.

    Compare with these works of Shishkin and let me know if you agree…
