About Douglas G Gordon
I Love To Create Bold, Beautiful and Moving Art!! In 2010, I started my art path by creating digital art only. This involved manipulating photographs that I had taken and morphing them into something completely different. I still do some of that with a few photos but I have moved my main artistic focus to paint brushes, palette knives and acrylics and straight forward photography. In the years ahead, I plan to learn and create in oil and other mediums; in order to express my creative visions in the best possible manner that entails learning new skills. I owe my ongoing passion for art to: those that encouraged me in my early days: a small studio in Grand Rapids, Michigan who invited me to show my art during Art Prize 2010 and The Amway Grand Plaza who invited me for ArtPrize 2011; The folks at the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art in Shawnee who are constantly in my corner and who promote the Arts in Shawnee though various events like Arts Trek and 'Off The Wall'; The numerous Art Galleries, including the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, in Glasgow, Scotland which provided free admission and world class art while I was growing up; My Parents and Family for encouraging me; and Last but most importantly... YOU!! for liking my art. It is for You that I create.
