These may take
some time to load if you have a slow connection - please be patient.
We have tried to post the photos large enough to show at least some of
the detail but have used a compression program to make them load faster
- it has digitized the photos somewhat. Extremely detailed pieces are beyond
the resolution of computer monitors.
We do not have a catalog, each piece is custom designed to suit the taste of the customer and no design is ever repeated, so if you see it here - chances are it's already spoken for although a few are designs that Doug has painted for himself without having been commisioned and are scheduled to be sold through art galleries.
"Paths in the woods"
idealized realism (installed on a slanted wall - see installation photo below)
"Small Town - Big Art Gallery Wall"
Doug and his assistant (Amanda Alders) began this mural in June 2003 -
We do not often display large, detailed murals on the internet (this one is a good example of why we do not - the detail is well beyond the capacity of computer screens.)
This is painted on very rough stucco, perhaps the worst possible painting surface for detailed work -click here for a few detailed photos
low -moderate detail level soft airbrushed western realism
mixed media, orb series - work in progress
"The Bather - Ophelia Awakens"
High detail level neo-classical realism (portrait)
"the berry pickers"
"Pool of Simplicity - Feng Shui for theoretical mathmaticians"
minimalist design with complex permutations
"Habitat In Fog"
multi layered transparent paint
geometric color field abstract with realistic elements - orb series - see detail (below)
"Eclipse Horizon Detail"
"Monkey off his Back"
background detail of a musicians portrait who beat a drug addiction - low - moderate detail
"Yellow Umbrellas Vertical"
low detail semi impressionism
Cantina Kitchen (installed)
This was done in the guest house kitchen of a delightful couple in Pottsboro Texas with a great sense of humor - Doug says he has never had so much fun working on a project as he has this one.They call their guest house decorating style "Intentionally Tacky" The guesthouse is nearly 100% murals inside and out, even ceilings and most of the furniture. Doug carved ceiling moldings in a continuous horizontal totem with no repetition from rough cedar. We will photograph and post the whole project (in progress) on a seperate page once all of the murals are completed. Various detail levels and styles from cartoon to realism - countertop is extremely detailed (see detail below)
The newspaper (pen and ink lettering with transparent oil paint colorization) is completely legible. Doug wrote humorous, tounge in cheek articles for the customers declaring the guest house an autonomous nation ("Cantinaland") and the couple King and Queen. One article asks the question "Now that Bruce and Carolyn are King and Queen, who will take out the garbage? William F. Buckley's opinion became somwhat less clear when he spoke..."
The countertop was painted to look like a cheap Mexican mosaic tile job with black grout with various objects sitting on it.
airbrushed western realism
"Seascape Children's Dresser"
Cartoon style low detail. We do not normally paint furniture for anyone who is not local, shipping costs are too high.
"Ice Cream River"
impasto oil painting - for a little girls bedroom
mixture of styles and materials in a college aged nightclub featuring live music -Portraits of local, regional and national musicians cover the entire interior of the room with the stage. We will photograph the whole project and post it to a separate page soon. This is a style that can be done for very little money - most of what you see here was painted within two hours - designed on the spot , with a broken cello in hand.
"blind mellon's storm"
extremely fast abstract - 40 square feet painted in a few minutes
cost of materials is much higher than labor on a piece like this
highly textured abstract mixed media construction - textract series (these can be any size or shape but shipping can be expensive on larger works)
