CHUCK BERK ART-ON-GOOGLE

As you may suspect, compiling over 40 years of drawings, ink/wash and paintings, was no easy task.  Many are no longer with me (some sold, missing, etc.).  Others are poorly photographed (before digital).  Some go back to college days, to more recent “Genre” scenes, “Portraits” and “Studio Life” images.

I chose ART-ON-GOOGLE  because of its international flair, fine presentation and image capacity.  You can view all 100 Berk’s Works in a 5 minute (enjoy with favorite beverage) slideshow or by album theme.  All images can be enlarged, many with fine quality.  Artwork will be updated from time to time, so please stop back often.

Figure Study Portfolio
22 images of artwork (on two pages)

Genre, slice of life & Abstractions
11 images of artwork

Portrait
34 images of artwork (on three pages)

Studio Life
32 images of artwork (on two pages)
