We are still having mild days down here in the front range however just 30 miles up the road in Rocky Mountain National Park winter has made its mark. We had a forest fire up there (Fern Lake trail area) until ten days ago until the snows arrive. I love how brigh it can be in Colorado with the show and our bright sun and this painting captures that affect.
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.
