"I live a stones throw from the water of The Great South Bay. The bay itself runs the southern coast of central Long Island to western
Suffolk County with the barrier islands its only source of protection from the wide open sea.
As an islander and boater my whole life, the bay has always been the source of play, work, and peace of mind. A delicate environment always changing, always giving up something new to see, a true natural resource. It is with great pleasure I study and paint what has been given to us."
Doug constantly is turning to the water for true inspiration, with runs to the shore with endless coastal settings. He has studied Plein Air and composition with acclaimed landscape painter Joseph
McGurl at his studio in Cataumet, Massachusetts, applying the field techniques to the studio work, relying on one's eye and the understanding of nature's purposeful way. Doug's original work is
represented in galleries of Connecticut, Maine, and New York and his print work is international.
