    December 2016: Charlie Hunter

    Charlie Hunter With PaintingCharlie Hunter lives in Vermont on the banks of the Connecticut River. With his art studio in an old paper mill, Charlie remarks, “I like to paint what nature does to what man creates. Of late I have been painting primarily in monochrome, using COBRA raw umber. If feeling sporty, maybe I'll blend in some ultramarine blue, viridian, yellow ochre, burnt sienna or unbleached titanium. Sometimes I'll do some encaustic work.”

    Charlie was born in rural New Hampshire, a place of farms and barns and swimming holes in abandoned granite quarries. He got his start as a professional artist designing tour posters and album covers for famous rock bands like the Jerry Garcia Band and Clash and REM.

    Today, galleries from Stowe, Vermont, to the renowned art mecca of Santa Fe, New Mexico exhibit Charlie’s work.

    Numerous articles have been published about his life and work, most notably in Plein Air Magazine, Outdoor Painter, Railroad Heritage, and Vermont Life.

    Of his art, Charlie says, “My goal is to paint beautifully that which is not traditionally considered beautiful.”
