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. George  won top prize: the  MSW Founders Purchase Award of $1,500 for his ‘MOMA – San Francisco,’ based on the postcard he painted of the atrium of the SF Museum of Modern Art. His winning painting becomes part of the Arkansas Arts Center Foundation’s permanent collection.
