A figurative piece different from those which I have been painting. For a period of time I allowed my self to be pigeonholed into the direction which galleries wanted. Now I paint what I want to paint.
Dreaming of the Universe, Oil on Canvas, 30 X 15 inches, $900 USD
Every once in a while I like to paint an image of a nude. For the artist interested in the human form, painting from the
life model is undoubtedly the best way to capture human shape, proportion, etc. I like to add more color and different color than appears on the model; thus, the purple tones to shadow parts of the body. An interesting exercise that helps with my more contemporary and abstract work.
Body and soul of woman. So much within and so much without that sometimes it is difficult to know the direction of either. This image, while seemingly placid, has internal turmoil almost as if another being resides within. Much like certain times of my life and the life of every other woman. My work has been compared to that of the Mexican artist Tamayo, to DeKooning, and lately to "the feel and composition of an early Diebenkorn, during his Albuquerque series." (Werenko and Coombs, Kaleidoscope, July 31, 2008). This piece undoubtedly is closer to the DeKooning perception. For more of my work, see my website www.charlotteshroyer.com

Just finished this new painting entitled "Girl with the Green Ribbon" Probably an image from a life drawing class from a while back. She sat on canvas in my studio for over a year until willing to come into final finished form. Pensive, but self assured and not unhappy with her life.
