"My love affair with historic old Boston has continued through countless visits over many sweet and memorable years. To artistically portray a glimpse of this wonderful New England city has always been a special desire of mine. I struggled futilely for years to decide what concept would capture my feelings about this great city and planned, on and off, for over two years.

"Finally, my curiosity was aroused by an apparent contradiction: the sophistication of this gracious old city and its homespun spirit typified by the name 'Beantown.' Being one to purport a certain amount of levity in some of my paintings, the combination of 'refinement' and 'sophistication' with the humorous name of 'Beantown' was too tempting to ignore. This contradiction became the nucleus of my idea for this monumental work entitled: 'Bostonians and Beans.'"

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.
