Piece description from the artist
A fantastic sunset with no digital enhancements or manipulation.
This sunset is, as it was – an incredible brilliant orange contrasted by the dark early evening silhouettes.
Taken at Wachusett reservoir in Clinton Massachusetts. Cracker-jack timing and a quick lens allowed this rare shot. "I took this photo at a moment when the whole dynamic was changing…within a few seconds, the colors and brilliance were gone".
New England-area artist Charles Brooks was born and raised in the boondocks of Massachusetts. He is heavily influenced by his outdoorsman background, his New England roots, and the variety of seasons the Northeast offers.
His portfolio consists of fine art in pencil, oils and acrylics, as well as a large number of photos of New England. The various seasons and the close proximity of rich seacoasts, mountainous peaks, pine and woodlands forests along with fertile farmlands, makes New England the perfect locale for subjects that are sure to please just about everyone.
Brooks Art Studios was founded in 2007 using the now abundant resources that the internet has to offer for self-promotion. It is Chuck's sincere hope that his journeys around New England will enrich your home with his wonderful art.
