This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in 1943 in San Antonio, Texas, plein air painter George Strickland started his fine art career through the field of commercial art. He first freelanced in illustration, and his work has received recognition in CA Magazine, Today's Art, American Artist, Illustrators Annual, and The New York Illustrators Society.

After moving West with his wife, Carolita, in 1989, he dedicated himself to full time painting, and he currently works out of Parker, Colorado. "The illustrations I had done earlier were primarily mixed media or watercolor, pencil, acrylic, ink, etc., but when I gave oil painting from life a try, it was as if the lights came on and there was an instant romance for me. The biggest surprise of all was that after painting on location for a few months I began to see more color around me than I had ever seen. In fact, although my eyes are not as good as they once were, I am aware of so much more than ever before. It's a big kick for me to go up to one of my students and paint in a small section with color that they had not seen until I put it in. Then, most times, they can see that color on the object. Our brains are programmed to make quick assessments of things and generalize. But when you learn to look long and hard at life directly, unexpected things are revealed, and the world gets more beautiful right before your eyes!"

Strickland's art education has included workshops with Jim Wilcox, Robert Pummell, Gary Carter, Kenneth Riley, William Reese and Howard Terpning. In describing his work, Strickland says: "My favorite subjects are landscapes and seascapes. I love the many moods of nature and painting, it connects me in a very spiritual way. A secondary inspiration for painting is the paint itself. To me, paint, especially oil, has a beauty that stands on its own. Juicy strokes on a canvas combined with techniques such as layering, dry brush, and colors painted wet into other colors can be very sensuous".

Strickland paints and teaches throughout the west. He is a member of the California Art Club, and a signature member of the Plein Air Painters of America (PAPA). in 2004, Strickland served as president of the PAPA.
