Doug has paintings in corporate and private collections throughout the world including collections of William Davis, David Peterson and the late Pierre Trudeau.
Among his accomplishments, he had a private audience with Philip the Prince of Wales and presented him with one of his paintings, which is now part of the permanent collection of the Prince.
His watercolor range is impressive having created over 1,500 watercolor paintings....he's created landscapes, historical sites, ships and wildlife subjects and was commissioned to paint the Avro Canada CF-105 Arrow Aircraft during the Diefenbaker years.
This is an original watercolor titled by the artist en verso: "Bachewana Bay", of a dark room, centered by an open window looking out into a green belt of dry grasses and a forest beyond; it's morning.
There's a small curtain that's caught up with a breeze or a draft coming from the old window of the house. And I like the cracks crawling up the wall on the right, like veins, as he shakes off his dreams and looks out into the woods.
Bachewana Bay is a small bay on the eastern shore of Lake Superior, approximately 31 miles north of Sault Ste. Marie.
Original vintage frame scuffed but in good condition; watercolor is in excellent condition, ready to hang.
