About

Tiny Falls features a closeup of water falling over rocks. Reflections dance on the surface as the translucency of the water reveals the rich browns and greens of the ground below.

Charles Hartley was raised in Oregon, received a Ph.D. in physics from the University of Colorado, and taught physics and astronomy for thirty years at Hartwick College in Oneonta, NY. After retiring, he took up painting with fervor. Charles came to us in 2008 with his first group of serious paintings. His handling and awareness of light & atmosphere were most intriguing. Hartley's work has grown tremendously in a very short time. He is self-taught, prolific, and his technique continues to inspire and marvel our visitors and collectors.
