George McGlynn is a self taught artist whose style has evolved over a period of many years. He paints with a palette knife and owes his style to the French Impressionists, especially Monet and Pisarro.

He juxtaposes dashes of broken color which influence the color of neighboring objects.
He has had numrous one man art exhibits in San Francisco. He journeys to the South of France and Italy every summer, with his wife, Ingeborg (above).
