The art of CHARLES MORRIS, a native of Colorado, reflects his passion for nature and the environment that has deepened over a lifetime of experiencing the wonders that surround us. His interests as an artist have slowly evolved from his early fascination of the details and textures found in subjects of weathered barns and wooded landscapes to the effects of color and light that now bring both his figurative and landscape subjects to life. Morris enjoys “painting the magic”, creating a visual expression of three-dimensional objects on a two-dimensional surface. “I want the viewer of my work to sense the depth and atmosphere and feel that they could almost step through the frame and move around in that world”. His paintings are in numerous private and corporate collections across the country. Morris maintains his light-filled studio in the Grand Valley of Western Colorado overlooking the colorful vistas of the Colorado National Monument.
