Last Friday my painting friend and I headed off for Plein Air Friday to see northern Colorado, southern Wyoming and stops in between. The weather was stunning and the painting was wonderful. I hope you enjoy this painting as much as I had in creating it. To purchase this painting please click on the buy now button below and follow the instructions.
I captured this image last summer on my way to Canada in Glacier National Park. Anyone who has gone over Going To The Sun Hwy knows this sight with the hanging glacier and thin watter fall below the glacier.
George Coll lives west of Loveland, Colorado, with his wife Jennifer. In 1994, they purchased their two-acre property with a 1920s-built-home, a barn and several outbuildings that include a studio he built in 1999. This rambling property at the base of the Rocky Mountains is also home to George’s two pack llamas. Night Train and Cardamom who love to trek into the backcountry with George to carry his paint supplies.
George works from life. George’s landscape paintings are composed on location to capture the essence of light. His larger landscapes/cityscapes are completed in the studio from his on-location field studies. George’s figurative paintings are inspired by his friends and acquaintances, which patiently model for him until completed.
