One Of The Masters Was Born Right Down the Street From Me

That's right, George Hurrell, one of the Hollywood Masters of portraiture was born right here in Covington, KY in 1904. That's like 5 miles from me. I have always loved his work throughout the many years. George was truly a master of his craft. He ended up moving to Laguna Beach via Chicago about 21 years later. He was a painter as a first choice, but switched to photography as a more reliable source of income. Hey you can read George's whole story right here. Don't forget to check out the video too - good stuff.
