I'm not actually sure how I stumbled onto this amazing artist
but his work is simply wonderful. I have a framed print of the work above and it is stunning...even as a print!
His name is Doug Strickland
and he lives in North Carolina.
He is a portrait, landscape and still life painter
who is deeply in touch with rural America
He paints primarily the every day comings and goings
of small communities...which are probably not far from where he lives.
There is a really magical touch to his work
and he draws you into the location
When I look at these, I get a true sense of the moment in time
that the painting is capturing.
You can almost hear those little chickens clucking....
The simplicity of the subject matter is what I really love
He does commissions of family members and pets as well!
You can view his web site and more of his work here
Hope you have enjoyed a little sample of Doug's work.
Have a wonderful and simple weekend!
Thanks for stopping in....
