Charlie Clingman was raised in spacious rural settings which had animals to play with and horses to ride. This planted the seed for his future exploration and appreciation of nature. He finds that 25 years of international surfing experience has not only been a great thrill and good exercise but a fine way to observe the water and surrounding landscapes. He seeks to have his paintings represent the beauty and action he encounters. Check out some of his work in San Luis Obispo's Box Art program in Downtown.
