Description: Carolyn Huff Photography Studio and Gallery is hosting Charles Waldman this November. Charles Waldman began painting full-time in 1999 after practicing Family Medicine in Sonora (CA) for 22 years. He was born in Oakland (CA) in 1949 and had an early interest in art but didn’t start oil painting until 1987. He is mostly self-taught except for two workshops with Clyde Aspevig that were a major part of his education and got him painting on-location. This is where he does most of his work. The former physician is awed by the course of events since leaving medicine for Art. He was selected as an Artist Member of the California Art Club, The Laguna Plein Air Painters, “The Sea-to-Shining-Sea” Exhibition and has been invited to several group shows at the Haggin Museum in Stockton (CA). Recently, a painting of his was purchased for the collection of Mrs.Joan-Irvine Smith. The artist paints mostly in California and the West but also makes trips to other parts of the US (Maine in July 2006) and has traveled many times to France. During month-long trips to France, he will often come home with 50 plein air studies. He teaches 2-3 workshops per year. “I paint on-location to discover the beauty in the commonplace and to find new ways for me to express this in paint. When I can fully engage in this dialog between place and paint, it is, for me, utterly satisfying.” Carolyn Huff Photography is located at 1224 K Street in Modesto. Henrietta Sparkman will also have a display October - December. An artist reception is held the third Thursday of each month, 5-9 pm, corresponding with the Modesto Art Walk.
