Charles Vogan, Keezletown, VA
Member Since September 2008
Artist Statement Charles R. Vogan Jr. was born on June 13, 1950 in Pennsylvania, moving south to Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley, VA in 1972. With no aspirations toward politics, he began training for the Christian ministry and received a B.A., an M.Div., and finally a Ph.D. in 1996 in Biblical Studies. Author of 26 books on the Bible, for seven years he served as the pastor of a church in Virginia.
He married Elma Ritchie in 1974, and they have six children - all grown and pursuing their own careers. As of this writing, the Vogans have five grandchildren with more on the way!
Chuck has always had an inclination towards hobbies. He has been a motorcycle rider for 35 years (having taken five trips out West). He is involved with Amateur Radio (licensed as KD5KA, Extra class), woodworking, astronomy (he built a 13" reflector on an equatorial mount), and now art.
Having no training in art, in 2003 he drew his first picture and discovered a hidden talent. Pursuing the difficult aspect of pencil portrait drawing, he tackled well-known historical figures and worked out the fundamentals of getting a likeness. These are free-hand portraits (Chuck is a purist! ;). After a two-year hiatus, in 2008 he decided to go back to portraits and attempt the Presidents for the election year.
