Vivid color carries the day in this gorgeous marine scene.

About the Artist (1934-2020)  "Primarily a resident of Nantucket, Massachusetts, but spending summers at Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, George Thomas is an impressionist painter of highly colorful marine scenes, primarily in pastels.

He studied art history and archaeology at Princeton University and spent three years as a U.S. Navy artist. Then he earned a degree in printmaking from the School of the Museum of the Fine Arts in Boston and worked as a photographer for the Peace Corps. He later taught photography at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts and was a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston.

In creating his paintings, he spends a lot of time on the charcoal sketching and works background to foreground, often creating large cloud masses." taken from

"A long-time Artist's Association of Nantucket artist member and board Director Emeritus, George C. Thomas sold his first painting at age 14 at the 1948 Sidewalk Art Show. His last major exhibition was an AAN retrospective of his career, Sixty Years Ashore, that I curated with George. The show filled both floors of our Washington Street gallery in 2009.

Thomas focused on watercolor from 1950-1958, lithography and etching from 1960-1964, photography from 1962-1985, and pastels from 1985-2008. His teaching experience also exhibited eclectic tendencies, having taught art to youth beside Elizabeth Saltonstall at Milton Academy, then printmaking at the Worcester Museum School, and then as a professor of photography at MIT – all during the 1960s." taken from the Artist's Association of Nantucket website
