Meet Artist George Haskell, Spring Obsession accepted artist

George Haskell, 
Oil Painter

O-101  Vibrant Yosemite Spring  9x12  oil  $250

George Haskell's first artistic love has always been landscape painting, in particular Yosemite.  He has always been captivated by the grandeur of Yosemite Valley season by season, scene by scene and moment by moment.  It is never the same valley twice. Capturing and interpreting the moods of the valley has alway been always a challenge and deeply inspiring.  Since retiring from a career teaching special education has focused on creating paintings that evoke a feeling of the time place and season for the observer.

           George began oil painting when he took a semi independent studies class in painting in college during the seventies.  He has worked for the past ten years to sharpen his skills.  During much of this time the main influence on his approach to painting has been his longtime friend and teacher Judy Cain.  Using color, often emphasized, evoking a feeling in the observer has been a primary consideration.
