After talking to George for a few minutes, you realize he’s a person you feel has become a lifelong friend. His outgoing spirit and genuine interest is evident in his way of life and attitude toward painting. Looking for visual excitement, good composition and color, George’s paintings captivate the eye. With straightforward palette knife techniques, he uses his oils with flair and panache, allowing the paint to react and interact. Using a relatively limited palette, George’s color has become his signature.
