As a native of South Miami, Douglas spent much of my life exploring - alone - on or around the water. Those elemental moments of sky and water... and the edges between... are the foundation for his exploration as a painter as well. Douglas is fascinated with expressive composition and hold a deep respect for shifting light... pushing paintings that he hopes open new views of both the expanse and the detail of the coastal landscape.
Often referenced as "interpretive" he easily departs to explore more abstract or distant characters... usually returning once again to rest comfortably at home. His art attempts to say as much about the way a place feels, as the way it looks... a collection of personal views - drawn from experience in life and in paint - of willing exploration and constant return to known edges and more familiar horizons. Currently a local artist creating in Blue Mountain Beach, FL.
