Elaine Warner Visits Charles Banks Wilson

My friend Elaine Warner is a travel writer and her work takes her to wonderful far away places - and sometimes to nearby spots, too. She recently got to visit the art studio of Charles Banks Wilson and actually visit the the artist himself, too! (Name sound familiar? Think murals in the Oklahoma State Capitol building for starters.) Who knew Wilson painted naked ladies?!

  1. that is sounding somewhat familiar. i interviewed charles once, when the oklahoma arts council gave him an award - and i think i remember him talking about his naked paintings - but i could be confusing him with a different artist. of course, betty price nurtured my love of wilson - as she did for many Oklahomans - wilson and beyond.
