Watercolor paintings depicting storyboard scenes from BOOKBURN. 3"x4.5" - 4.5"x5.5"

"The use of watercolor is an important part in the search for lucidity with the spontaneous 'accident' of the medium serving as a possible guide," explains George. His watercolors have been created as "an attempt to figure out an atmosphere and ideas for staging."
