Doug’s goal is for you to have an emotional connection to his work. And to make you smile. He’s inspired by the world around and within him, making hundreds of sketches to find the right image to put to canvas. Deep down Doug believes all artists paint for themselves, yet artists long for acceptance and approval, while understanding each viewer’s comments are valuable. He paints mostly in acrylics and oils with his style living somewhere between surrealism and expressionism. He thinks his best work is produced late in the evening, while listening to good music with a good glass of wine or two. It’s all good.
