The Greenwich Workshop 1989 Christmas Print

"When I was young, Christmas meant good feelings between neighbors, home-baked pies, home-made gifts and especially friendly snowball fights between the boys. We would divide into teams and call ourselves things like 'Hawks' and

'Bulldogs,' just as I've shown in 'Christmas Greeting.' Then we would stick our sleds in the snow and hunker down behind them while we built our forts.

That task completed, each fellow would pat together his snowballs and then each team would inspect the other's ammunition. We had to have exactly the same amount. Finally, all hats and scarves (and sometimes goggles) firmly in place, the cry went up: 'Let the battle begin!' How our projectiles flew! But there were never any casualties and truce was declared when the snowballs ran out. It was all innocent fun. Part of the lasting memories of Christmas."


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.
