The Art of Charles Pilkey
Creativity is a fire burning in the heart of the artist.
Some say it was stolen from the gods and given to artists for the betterment of humanity. To others, the creative fires which drive and consume the artist, mirror on a small scale creation
ex nihilo, by the god of Genesis.

Figures represent characters from world literature
And every night and every morn
Some to misery are born.
And every morn and every night
Some are born to sweet delight.
Some are born to sweet delight.
Some are born to endless night.
