Charles Sovek (1937-2007) is my favourite artist! His work always looks fresh and spontaneous, never heavy handed. I love the way he captures reflected light. Here's a link to Charles Sovek's Awesome Website, which is chalk full of fantastic paintings. It took me days to absorb all of his wonderful work, his 'Lessons from the Easel' and his 'Speaking of Art' notes. Enjoy, and I hope he inspires you as he does me!
