Chuck Parsons \ Collection
Taking dramatic steps to represent color and form, his work is the touchstone of ab-stract and regional impressionism. Like his nineteenth century forbearers, he paints loosely, alla prima literally "all at once," juxtaposing colors in short, choppy brushstrokes. "Color harmony is the essential element of my work," he states. "As I get older, I have come to think that the brushwork is most important, perhaps more so than the subject or the composition."
