About Douglas G Gordon
I don't set out to produce art on any one subject. I'm always using the camera of my mind to capture the usual and unusual sights of everyday life. Sometimes these sights will sit unexpressed for years. I use bold colors and lots of movement in all of my art. I use a lot of sensuous curves and passionate inferences in it. I am a passionate person and like to share my passion for life. Some of my subject matter is about people's daily routines, a comment on human nature. Some is about nature and some is pulled, screaming, from my dreams.I am often asked ‘What were you feeling when you created that?” or, “Where did your inspiration come from?” Truth be told; I often can not pin it down. I feel the urge to paint and I transfer the images from the forefront of my mind to the canvas. It is my hope that sometimes you will feel what I see in the art and experience what I was feeling when I created it. However, I want you to connect with my art in your way; to feel what you want to feel.
