Featured Artist June 2011
Lisa R. George is a figurative and plein air painter who works in oils and various other media. This series of paintings was inspired by walking in the foothills, road trips, or a momentary reflective facial expression.
Designing each painting came down to how to encapsulating the moment visually with texture, tone and light. The way light shined on each subject, or didn't, created the most dynamic composition.
"Although I love painting a variety of subjects, I find I often return to painting trees or people. Their forms and moods are strangely similar and interesting. There is always a different, original story to tell."
She studied at Colorado Institute of Art and Art Center College of Design. With a background in graphic design and fine art, her experience led her to work for various entertainment studios in Los Angeles, including Disney and MGM.
Her artwork has been displayed locally in Altadena at The Gallery at the End of the World, The Spring Towers in Downtown LA, and La Jolla.
