About the Artist:
George H. Grimm's passion for painting has gone back many years. Born in 1947 to a family of artists in different aspects of the creative arts, George was always interested in the world of color and light. After high school, he attended the Arizona School of Fine Art in Arizona and then went on to the Art Institute of Boston in the mid 1960s. He lived and spent much of his life in Arizona and Vermont and settled in Vermont, where he now paints daily. When younger, he spent many years working as a draftsman in a civil engineering environment and also as a land surveyor here in Vermont, which gave him the opportunity to appreciate firsthand the incredible scenes of nature every day. George spent as much time as possible trying to depict the beauty and complexities of the landscapes in Vermont and from his travels across the United States. Truth be told, he simply loves to paint!
We at Dogbotz Boneyard have collected the artwork of George H. Grimm because of the Impressionistic play of light and color that add subtle emotional content to his landscapes - fundamentally, a love for the inherent beauty of nature. However, we are also deeply moved by his depictions of country barns, a reminder of a American life less cluttered, less frenzied, and more in touch with who and what is truly important; and, when in decay, such a barn hints at memories and values perhaps soon to be irretrievably lost. And so, from our Dogbotz Boneyard Gallery of Art for your own personal collection, we present George H. Grimm's Vermont Classic #1.
