India visit

India visit

I painted temples, palaces, landscapes and city-scapes in Dehli, Varanasi, and Rajastan, in the north, and Tamil Nadu, in the south. All of these postcard paintings can be seen at the India link on the web site. The trip to those places involved a stay at an ashram and a visit to the more traveled sites like the Taj, Varanasi on the Ganges and Maharashi Palaces. Not only did we stay near the Taj , but also visited a ceremony in Varanasi where cremations took place in and by the sacred Ganges. Two of my favorite postcard images are the Ghats, “Ghats at Dawn“,  built by the Ganges, and the cremations, “Burning...

Watercolor Magazine

Watercolor Magazine featured the Postcard Paintings of George on 6 pages. The pages were illustrated and included many examples of his work. The story focused on his artistic techniques, the places from which the Postcard Paintings were sent and how he mails the postcards. An excerpt: “George Wittenberg’s unique postcard art incorporates a free-flowing style with strong line work. Throw in the interactive aspect of a postmaster’s stamp and the result is a remarkable image that captures a sense of place.”

Travelers on American Airlines read about George’s postcard art in their American Way on-board magazine, which reproduced his postcard painting of Florida’s famous old Biltmore Hotel. An excerpt: “Watercolorist George Wittenberg roams the world painting postcards – subjects range from the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables to the St. Germain in Paris – and mails them to his buyers from the town in which they were created.” It also mentioned that George won First Prize in 2003 Mid-Southern Watercolorists (MSW) Show, Arkansas Art Center Purchase Award. Ninety-four artists from six states entered 175 slides in the 33rd annual exhibition of the Mid-Southern Watercolorists.

Arkansas Democrat Gazette (2/9/2003)

A Sunday feature article, “Architect opens Web gallery of postcard art,” by Scott A Johnson in the  Arkansas Democratic Gazette, explored how George’s concurrent careers – urban designer, architect, and artist – relate. How he in each of them intensely visualizes spaces and how people interact with them. It quotes him: “Nothing can replace the intensity of the image and the memory of the spaces like spending an hour and a half or an hour painting it.” Some excerpts: Wittenberg’s travel art was recognized when he was winner of a $1,500 purchase award at the 2003 Mid-Southern Watercolorists as the Arkansas Arts Center. The winning piece, Museum of Modern Art – San Francisco, was based on a postcard created in 1999 at the new museum designed by Swiss architect Mario Botta . . . Wittenberg began creating postcard art in the late 1970′s after reading about a similar project by another artist. Initially he worked in pen and ink, but soon found he needed a less time-consuming medium. Watercolors have proved ideal . . . “I like the watery effect, and I also like the quickness of it . . . Watercolor has to be immediate. You have to come up with the idea, get it planned out and do it fairly quickly.” . . . Wittenberg’s (art) work continues to reflect his “day job”. Architectural themes remain a common subject . . . “I think going and seeing those spaces and experiencing them – knowing them as I’ve known them since my first trip to Europe in 1967 – has translated into making (Little Rock’s River Market District) into what we all wanted it to be: a people space.” . . . At first (his postcards) were sent to a wide circle of friends, but the artist soon found it difficult to get recipients to relinquish the miniature works. Now he sends most to his daughters, Jessica Howard and Toby Murry, both of whom live in Little Rock, or to himself. None has ever been lost in the...
