Carl Gluck lives in
Camarillo, California. He did his first pen and ink drawing in the summer of
2001 after returning from a weeklong vacation in the north woods of Minnesota.
Prior to that Carl had never held an artist's pen or paint brush in his adult
After about a year Carl tried
painting, first with oil then with acrylic. During his second year of art he tried Watercolor
painting too. His work continues to evolve as is apparent in the portfolio found
here. This web site gives his artwork the "wall space" it deserves. Enjoy
viewing Carl’s work. Let him know what you think. Email him at email@example.com.
a member of
the Camarillo Art Center. He has shown his
art publicly. Carl is also working to understand art reproduction which has him
reading photography books and trying different cameras, scanners and
says he still hasn't found his voice with his artwork
- he jumps from one media to another, and from one technique
to another. Carl has noticed that some artists mature
to the point where their art has a unique signature
- each painting looks like the previous one as
the artist settles in on one media and one theme. But
Carl says he has so many things he wants to try, and
you can see here that he doesn't stick with any one
media for more than a couple of paintings.
has not had any training in art or painting. He often
thinks about taking an art class or seeking instruction
in one of the area colleges. In the meanwhile he just
keeps reading how-to books and experimenting with different
brushes, methods and paint materials.

day so this whole art thing is new and different for him. He welcomes your

Carl is always looking for a unique
fresh photograph for a drawing or painting. His favorite subjects are landscapes
and portraits (his friends tease him about his fascination with trees which is
quite evident in much of his art). If you wish to provide a photo with
permission for its use in an upcoming drawing or painting please feel free to
forward it to Carl via email. If he uses it, he will provide you with a good copy
of the finished work, free.
This website was created to be a
"cyber art gallery". It is a quiet, no popup, no advertising website. Actually
Carl directed its design based upon several visits to area art galleries. Carl
invites you to grab a cup of coffee, sit back and relax, and enjoy the artwork
common question Carl gets when showing his artwork is:
"Do you have a daytime job?" Yes. Carl has
worked in radio broadcasting his entire career. He started
in 1965 as a volunteer board operator at a non-commercial
radio station. Today he is a certified Professional
Broadcast Engineer with the Society of Broadcast Engineers.
Carl works at Salem Communications Corporation, headquartered
in Camarillo. He is the Vice President of Technical
Research for the company.
learns things, like how to draw or paint, by reading
books and articles. His learning process can be rather
"jerky" or impulsive, as he gets a whim to
try something, buys the materials, and paints (or draws)
away. Sometimes this ends in failure. Sometimes it turns
out surprisingly good. Either way Carl learns in the
loves to learn. If you have an observation, a tip, or
a comment that may help Carl, please take a minute to
send him an email.
