New Watercolors by
George Harkins

September & October 2014

George Harkins’ paintings reflect his reaffirmation of works by past masters, Albrecht Dürer and Leonardo da Vinci, a tradition which confirms the ageless and eternal beauty of the life cycle. Harkins examines nature and its patterns as if through a close-up lens. His most recent work has become somewhat abstracted but still imbued with the beauty of seasons and relationships of life and water.

...the luminous watercolors of George Harkins, whose pictures of stream-etched landscapes are both delicate and epic. Such large paintings as "Cascade and Reflection" capture the gentle play of light and the energetic rush of water, in fastidious detail yet with unbridled brushwork.
