Charlie Burk

Charlie Burk has been painting landscape for 40+ years and finds an endless source of inspiration from the world around him. He paints poetic portraits of our living earth. Executing a painting of a field of grass requires great skill. Charlie’s lush landscapes of grass captivate us. His paintings thoughtfully and seductively pull the viewer close for a better look. He offers us a portal into our memory of a landscape, something elusive yet calming.
