Whether painting in her studio in Taos, New Mexico or in selected sites in the world, Charlotte "Charlee" Shroyer paints contemporary images of human and animal figures as well as natural landscapes, arches, and structures created by man over the centuries.
"Painting is a passion of mind and soul. Where it comes from, I know not. The process starts with just a few swipes of paint on the canvas and then the symphony begins--here and there another color with still no idea of what will appear. Finally an image touches the fringes of my mind. Bits and pieces of a vague outline trigger a subconscious thought, experience, place, or person. I see a path through the mind onto the canvas. There may be many detours along the way, but the first step to the finish line has been sighted."
