Charles Peterson Americana Watercolor Prints

Charles L. Peterson is the hot new watercolor artist known for his "ghost image" watercolors." He says, "The memories paintings come directly from what I've experienced and observed since childhood. I suppose you could say they're reflections of my life ... and of the personalities I've known along the way." Here are some of his current works: 

Older Memories prints:

This link has a complete list of prints included in the Memories Collection, when issued and their number in the series. These are all truly representative of the Americana art movement.
 To better help you understand and appreciate the work that Peterson puts into these beautiful watercolor prints, I'm taking a section from one of his publisher's brochures to show you how he accomplishes the "ghost images".

August 1st, 2004 - "Though concerns over global warming have intervened, I miss that wonderful smell of burning leaves, the siren call of childhood, drawing, drawing friends into exuberant display on our way home from school and eliciting friendly exchanges among neighbors ... a quieter celebration of the passing beauty of fall."

February 1st, 2004 - "Readin, Ritin, Rithmatic and Recess. People often talk about getting back to the 'Three Rs' of the old days. But those of us who were there know there were four, not three. Recess was where we learned about swings and marbles and jump ropes... and people. And Life. Maybe it's a good thing we didn't know how beneficial it was; it may not have been so darn much fun."   Charles Peterson.

Toady and in any time, good old Frosty has a way of bringing us back to the basics of childhood. Truly, the world is a little better place to live because of the contributions of these soft spoken men of snow."

May 1st, 2003 - "My kids can't imagine life without a microwave. They laugh at the thought of watching black and white (or, as they say, "grey") TV. And, since it's seldom portrayed in the movies, they're not sure if they should believe my description of what gas stations were like in the "olden days." -- Charles Peterson

February 1st, 2003 - Long rows of stones lining the edges of once plowed fields tell of an investment of time and labor which most of us can scarcely imagine. Generations of farm families worked annually to clear their land of stones brought to the surface by frost and plow. These cairns remain as unintended monuments to the hard wok and dedication required of the entire family in coaxing their livelihood from the soil... producing what is absolutely essential to us all. "Clearing the Field" is my tribute to them.

November 1st, 2002 - In the little college town where I began my teaching career, there was a beautiful Victorian house still occupied by the daughter of it's original builder. Doctor Holroyd. In it's front parlor, this little lady gave piano lessons to boys and girls until well into her eighties, sharing her gift of music with literally hundreds of students over the years. Even though I did not know her personally, a story I heard delighted me and has kept her in my mind since: Well past " normal retirement age,' Miss Holroyd had ordered a new grand piano to replace her aging Baldwin upright. Finding it impossible to negotiate the entrance hallway, the piano movers were obliged to remove a bay window and bring the thing in through the large hole in the wall. Miss Holroyd could not bear to watch, but when the piano was safely set up in it's new home, she came back and played a short recital of Chopin for the men. Following appropriate applause, one of the crew, a very large black man, reciprocated by sitting down and playing for her a set of blues. I love that picture, I suppose the house showing through the window and the Chopin on the piano are my private little reminders of that delightful event. I think most of us remember our piano teachers with a certain amount gratitude. Obviously, very few students are destined for the concert stage, but many do continue to play for a lifetime. Even those of us who do not enriched with a better appreciation of a majestic art form. In Piano Lessons I tried to paint a lady true to the spirit of dedicated piano teachers like Miss Holroyd, diligently sharing her devotion to music with a firm yet gentle hand. Thank you to you all for filling your communities with music.

Yes, we do APPRAISALS of prints. However, there is a cost.
The first print is $35.00 and each print after that is $10.00.
Just give us some lead time.     Allen

We regret the need to raise our shipping costs.
Postage costs have steadily increased while we held the line on our shipping prices.
We no longer can. We need to add $5 for each framed print under $200
and $10 to the price of any framed print $200 and over. There is
no price change on an unframed print.
