George Kentros

George Kentros’ medium of choice is oils, and he loves to paint landscapes with an emphasis on architecture and foliage. His art is largely representational and employs vibrant but realistic colors to convey a scene.

George Kentros began painting in the 1960s but didn’t devote himself fully to the creative process until after he retired in the mid 1990s. Once he had more time on his hands, his wife encouraged him to take painting lessons from a local artist in Texarkana, Texas. The lessons continued twice a week for three years, and after the teacher departed, Kentros and several of his classmates continued meeting and comparing work. Since that time, Kentros has found the creative expression of painting to be an increasingly important part of his life.
