Eagle family painting
You had painted a picture for Dr. Ashley in the 70's and I have loved that painting. It was a painting of a male eagle, female eagle and her three baby eagles. We used to live in Cape and my husband uncle also has a painting -- Gunther Oldorps.I think they did some painting for you. My question, do you do prints from your painting. I really love the coloring in Dr. Ashley's painting. We are in Texas now. Thank you
Would Mr. Rhinehart value two of his paintings I have?
I have inherited two paintings by Mr. Rhinehart. An art dealer in Ste Genevieve told me they were pastels on valour,(under glass). I do not see a signature. Maybe its under the framing. I would like to travel to your studio and have you sign and value for insurance reasons. I do hope this would not be too much to ask. I respectfully ask for a reply.

We knew his mother, Lena
I lived in Ste. Genevieve, Mo. in 1976. Was a church pastor there. Lena attended our church. We became close friends and in 1977 she gave us an oil painting that was her son's creation. It was simply rocks near a shoreline with the ocean in background. We have had it all these years. Lena was a grand lady and we are grateful for the painting. Do not know it it has much value, but we love it.
M. Charles Rhinehart
My parents purchased a painting from Mr. Rhinehart while they were living in Cape Girardeau, MO. many years ago.
I recently was fortunate enough to obtain a still life of Mr. Rhineharts from my parents's estate. It is a blue vase with wild flowers in it. It has been painted on black velvet. Stunning piece of art.

Do you remember an air plane ride with Ott, Anna Mae, and myself, many, many years ago?
M. Charles Rhinehart
My parents purchased a painting from M Charles Rhinehart in about 1968.
It is beautiful and I am so grateful it came to me as part of their estate. It is a still life in colors of tourquise, orange, yellow and brown, and is absolutely luminous! I have never seen anything quite like it. One of the other contributers described Rhineharts work as a representation of etherial light and color.I cannot improve on this description.
M. Charles Rhinehart recollection
I was an undergraduate art student at Southeast Missouri State University in the early 1960s when Charles Rhinehart lived in St. Genevieve, Missouri. Many of us admired his early works, which explored a non-objective, cosmic-like representation of etherial light and color. His paintings seemed to evolve out of a unique technique for representing light and an extension of the color field painters who strongly influenced the academic art scene at that time.
I lost track of Mr. Rhinehart over the years but my brother, also an artist, who now lives in Texas, and I were talking of him and his early works just this week when we were together as a result of our father's death.
I am now within three or four year of completing a career as an arts administrator and hope to have time in the near futher to return to my studio. I'm a printmaker.
Little Rock, Arkansas
I was in Carefree AZ on and off for ten years. for five of those I had admired one of Mr. Rhineharts paintings. My father in law purchased it for us from an art gallery and we treasure it.
