George Stone is a representational oil painter who focuses primarily on landscape and still life subject matter. He paints extensively from life (plein air) but also works in the studio using plein air studies, sketches and photographic reference. He has won many awards and his paintings hang in numerous
private collections.

 

George attempts to convey the beauty and dignity of everyday scenes to his viewers through a clear concept, accurate drawing, expressive values and color and a well-designed composition. He is especially interested in developing a mood in his landscapes by capturing the quality of light present during different times of day, different seasons of the year and different locations.

During his work life George has enjoyed some diverse careers, including playing professional baseball in the Chicago White Sox organization, working as a mechanical engineer in the power generation industry, and working as a professional artist. 

 

However, art has been his most consistent lifelong pursuit, as he began his studies with artist Mabel Shealy during the early 1970’s and has been painting ever since.

 

In recent years he has taken classes and workshops in painting and drawing under a number of nationally known artists,  including John Pototschnik, Bill Davidson, Bill Farnsworth and Chris Groves.
