I live in Loveland Colorado and Estes Park is twenty five miles up the Canon. This Time of year the river is stunning with the snow, shadow and bright sun. I just completed the painting and it needs another week to dry before shipping.
I completed this painting today and it won't be ready to ship for seven to ten days to allow for proper drying. The location is just west of where I live in Loveland Colorado on the Big Thompson River. The winter colors are wonderful in late afternoon.
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.
