Painting nature is tantamount to a meditation on the connection of heaven and earth. No matter if it is Mother Nature or created by human manipulation it is the same save the eye of the beholder. So, we paint on as a pure celebration of life itself.



Born in Bluefield, Charles Bruce grew up in Princeton, West Virginia, and now lives in Radford, Virginia. With his wife, also an artist and writer, he had an advertising agency in Virginia Beach from 1977 until 2002, when together they wrote, published, and marketed a three-volume series of novels entitled Rebel King, about the reign of Robert the Bruce, King of Scots, and the Scots’ Wars of Independence against the English kings, Edward I and Edward II.

Over his commercial art career, his works won well over a hundred awards, many for design, and he has shown and sold his fine art paintings in such venues as Lincoln Center and Soho, NYC, and galleries in Virginia Beach, Roanoke, and Blacksburg, VA, Charleston, SC, Chicago, IL, and many lesser venues.
