Contemporary Watercolor Impressionist George has always been drawn to interesting old buildings, railroad stations, old churches, fishing shacks, gingerbread victorians. A play of light and shadows, a drizzle of rain or curtain of fog, or a splash of colorful flowers help soften the angularity of his subjects. An early interest in comic strips lead to an apprentiship with Al Capp's "LIL' Abner", then the publication of his own adventure strip "Marlin Keel" which was syndicted coast to coast. The experience helped him perfect his drafsmanship and imaginative skills. Exchaning pen and ink for a paintbrush, he resumed his art school talent for watercolor. While working in commercial art to support his family, he began to win prizes in Boston and national shows in New York. He achieved membership in the American Watercolor Society and began teaching watercolor which he is still doing and painting for the galleries.
