“In my paintings, I want to hit every emotion I can - from the sublime to the silly,” Charles Wysocki said. The love of life, with all its wit and wisdom, poetry and emotion, sights and sensations, is captured in his paintings.

“There is a simple message in my work,” Wysocki said, “and it is love.”

"Daddy’s Coming Home" tells a universal, yet deeply intimate and emotional story. We all have shared the same feeling, whether it is at the end of the day, the end of a business trip or even deployment overseas: the anticipation of seeing your father again.

“I am a devout admirer of the artist Winslow Homer,” said the artist. “He has always been an inspiration to me. He did a painting titled 'Dad’s Coming.' It featured a mother holding a baby and a young lad sitting on a small boat - all at water’s edge, looking out to sea. I was so moved by this work that I decided to do my own version of the same story.”

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.
