CHARLES P. SOVEK
March 23, 1937 – June 8, 2007
I never got to meet Chuck, but his books (amazon link) were among the first I read about being a serious oil painter--I always meant to take a workshop from him, but just heard that it is too late. Mr. Sovek maintained a brilliant Web site as well, which is still up thanks to his kind family. It is one of the most comprehensive sites about painting that I know of. Here is one of his paintings from last spring.
