"In Lancaster, Pennsylvania, we took a guided tour of an Amish home, barns, outbuildings, etc. Our guide spent a long time on the interesting history and exciting present-day life stories of these fascinating folks.

"It was interesting to learn, that contrary to popular belief, the hex signs painted on their barns were not 'to keep evil spirits away,' but rather done 'just for fancy."

The farmlands, in all their splendor with neat rows of vegetable and fruit crops, were a mass of beautifully colored patches. The Amish quilts, contemporary in design and color, with simple, sophisticated patterns, were natural for an extra special effect in this image.




Charles Wysocki
Some things about Charles Wysocki’s life can be anticipated. For instance, he collects Early American toys, tobacco tins, folk art, clocks, crockery and books. High on the list of favorite places are Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard . . . and all of New England. Other things are a surprise: while he paints typically New England scenes, he lives in California. Yet one only has to look at his work to understand the person. Born in Detroit in 1928, Wysocki enjoyed an active and happy boyhood, which seems reflected in the spirit of his work. Since early childhood, he had no other desire than to be an artist. After two years in the Army, Wysocki headed west to the Art Center School in Los Angeles, the city where he met his wife Liz, to whom he attributes much of his inspiration because she grew up on a farm. The aspects of her life that affected him were the basics: hard work, personal closeness and contentment with life’s "little things." Wysocki adds, "I hope my paintings revive pleasant thoughts of a bygone era and express a semblance of order and serenity that fills a need in this fast- changing world. I like to add a touch of humor into my work. I see life on the lighter side, in much simpler and more basic forms." Wysocki’s award-winning art is sought-after internationally and has been published in two books, American Celebration and Heartland.
