John sat for us last week for our Friday morning portrait group. We totally loved the three hour sitting. We played old, old time western music, Tex Ritter, Sons of the Pioneers, Jean Autry etc. We yodeled and howled like coyotes at appropriate times while listening. I hope you enjoy the portrait as much as I had painting it.

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.
