She loves to sail the craft that Horatio had built for her. There are days with her private thoughts when she cruises the shore forlornly passing the time, possibly thinking of the letter she will write that night. The sea is where she met her captain and she readily accepted the life she knew she was fated to endure when she married this ever-travelling sailor. The saga continues as she spends her long, lonely days and nights alive with the hope that he will return someday soon, as his last letter hinted, or arrive unexpectedly, surprising her to banish the persistent heartache.

Charles Wysocki Biography
1928 - 2002
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, before his passing he lived 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.
