George moved his family to the Southwest after working in photography and drafting during World War II while stationed in Washington state. After the War, he moved his family to the Southwest and started his fine art career, receiving instruction from Henry Balink in Santa Fe, New Mexico and Hurlstone Fairchild in Tucson, Arizona. He worked for many years as a commercial artist and illustrator and had work appear in publications such as True West, Frontier Times, Quarter Horse Journal, Appaloosa News and Western Horseman. He founded the Cowboy Artists of America when he met Joe Beeler, Charlie Dye and John Hampton at the Oak Creek Tavern in Sedona, Arizona, June 23, 1965. Phippen was tasked with being the organization’s first president but, unfortunately, passed away a year later from Cancer.

Easy Drivin’ is classic Phippen scene with two cowboys rounding up a herd of cattle with a beautiful mountain range in the background.
