The painting was inspired by the late winter light we have here in Colorado. The ares west of my home in Loveland Colorado is a wonderful place to paint. I found this spot on the big Thompson River between Estes Park Colorado and Loveland. The painting recently won Best of Show on April 10th 2010 at the AANC (Artists Association of Northern Colorado) competition in Ft. Collins Colorado. The painting will be hanging in the AANC show at the Lincoln Center in Ft. Collins until the completion of the show on May 8th.

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.
