It's of Helen Wills, the noted
women's tennis champion
from 1923 to 1929.
This painting was commissioned by the subject.
It was painted several times because the lady thought
it looked too much like her.
I can only guess that she thought that
Charles could improve the way she
would look in the portrait.
This work is of a farm road off Old Kummer Road
that is now a paved road into a subdivision.
The subject must have been one of
Charles' favorite spots since we have seen
it from every angle and
in every season.
It is one of my favorites too.

Charles was my
In January 1924 Charles and his wife Marceline to Amercia on the SteamShip La Savoie.
the trip had to be miserable from the look of the pictures they took.

They traveled to Belleville Il. to see his mother and brother. Then traveled to
Meckling South Dakota to visit their son. Then he went to Oceola Missouri to see
his daughter Yvonne and two Grandchildren Marguerite and Albert.
Now the war has been over a few years and his visiting was over it was time he made a
decision. While working in Paris as an artist Charles met Mr. Thomas M. Marshall Jr.
An American who was happy to meet another American who knew Paris so well and upon seeing
Charles skills became enamored with his work. Mr. Marshall left Charles an open invitation
to visit if he ever came to Pennsylvania. In the mid 20's Charles took him up on his
invitation and while staying with Thomas, Charles was urged to stay and live on
Mr. Marshall's farm in the McCandless Township. Mr. Marshall offered the use of a small
house on the estate. Charles told Mr. Marshall he would prefer to stay in a log cabin that
stood on the property. Mr. Marshall accommodated his wishes after Charles explained
that the rustic setting would inspire him in his craft. So Charles and his wife moved
into the cabin. It is located about 20 miles North of Pittsburgh, Pa. on the south side
of North Park. Charles daughter Yvonne her husband Albert and their children traveled to
North Park and atayed for about a year. The picture below was taken on that visit.
Try to imagine driving that car from Missouri to Pennsylvania in 1925.
Charles built a studio behind the cabin and started painting the countryside.
He had fallen in love with the area when he traveled through there as a young
artist on his way to study in France. He traveled through Harpers Ferry and north through
Pittsburgh then on to New York. Now with new life and new inspiration Charles was
walking the countryside painting his landscapes. The hazy air, rolling hills and rustic
buildings all gave a beautiful perfection that held years of work for the artist now in his
own country. Mr. Marshall being a Judge in Pittsburgh got the word around and soon
Charles was painting portraits of many distinguished people ,Jurists, industrialists, social
leaders, etc. He painted the Hon. Charles H. Kline Mayor of Pittsburgh,
Rev. Dr. C. E. Macartney, E. W. Smith Attorney and President of the Bar Association.
And was considered one of the best portraits he had done. It hangs in the City County
Building. Charles talent was being recognized in this country. He painted several notable
woman of the time while in Pittsburgh. They were sports stars, actresses and you can see
