Color photograph of artist George StricklandGeorge Strickland began his career in commercial art by working at a newspaper art department and then graduating up to ad agencies, freelancing illustration and co-owning a design firm. After several years in the commercial field, he was inspired to move to Fine Art after taking painting workshops with such greats as HowardTerpning, Ken Riley and several other Cowboy Artists of America. A few years later he was further inspired to paint outdoor landscapes by William Reese and Jim Wilcox, and that experience really gave him the painting bug. George and his wife have moved around the country, living inTexas, Nevada, Colorado, and Arizona, building a successful painting career and gathering awards along the way. He is a signature member, and past president of the Plein AirPainters of America (PAPA), member of the California ArtClub, and Northwest Rendezvous Group (NWR).
