About the Artist
George Rentz is an accomplished water-colorist. Having painted since he was a young boy, he always knew he wanted to be an artist. A Denver native, Rentz grew up fascinated with western culture. When he was old enough to travel he also developed a keen interest in Native American and Mexican American cultures.
As he traveled as a young man, and as an adult, Rentz constantly sketched and honed his talent. After college and graduate school, he began working for Time Warner but nevertheless continued to sketch and to paint.
After marrying his lovely wife Cynthia, he continued to travel and began painting in earnest. He has a penchant for painting landscapes and portraits and has an exquisite eye for detail and the ability to keep his images pure. Many of Rentz’s works evoke the feeling of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painters.
Rentz paints what he sees - whether it is an abandoned mountain farmhouse or a group of Aspens holding sentinel in the mountains - he brings life to each painting. In a world that is constantly changing, he has developed a remarkable talent that allows us to experience life in a still moment - forever lasting and never changing.
His warm style has always been acknowledged by his friends and colleagues, but over the past few years his colors, his use of light and movement, and his balance and brushstrokes have made his works extremely sought after.
Now that his studio is completed, Rentz is able to study and evolve as a painter. Although many of his works are in private collections, he is occasionally available for commissions and has a continuing supply of original paintings for sale.
