Charles Oglesby Longabaugh was born in Grayslake, Illinois where his studio was on Park Avenue where he executed much of his work. Born in 1885, Charles became a painter and print maker studying at Wheaton College and later at the Art Institute of Chicago. Back in his prime he was such a beloved artist that his pieces sold "wet off the canvas", meaning that his art was in such high demand proper supply couldn't be met selling as quickly as he could produce. He was not only a great artist but just as good a man, and friend which was clear when after he passed away many people came forward to speak of his graciousness. 

Charles traveled extensively around the United States, Canada, and Europe but loved the American South West especially the New Mexico area. This is apparent as most paintings are of this style either of adobe homes or western landscapes. Best known as a landscape artist his pieces are usually executed on paper as watercolor and that is due to how much faster it is to produce than oil on canvas, this helping him keep up with the high demand. 

This watercolor is a real beauty entitled, "Sunset on a Hill" during the fall as what looks to be a midwest landscape. The panting is wonderfully executed with the slight touch of a impressionists flare but the autumn colors are just warm and intricate as the rays of the sun are cast on the hill. This watercolor has been professionally framed and double matted all with museum quality material which is truly stunning! The condition is near perfect as this has been well preserved and loved since its creation in 1938.
