Douglas Winters III is a revered local artist that will be painting a 36” x 48” live auction piece in Incrementum III, 9th Annual Art Auction benefitting alley’s house. Douglas is a faithful supporter of alley’s house.
This is his third year to participate in the art auction and he is delighted to paint a work of art again this year.
“I find it to be a very rewarding experience to give to a good cause in an enlightening manner,” Douglas said. “Art to me is speaking visually, telling a story with an empowering message.”
Douglas is planning to incorporate nature into his painting this year.
“I intend to portray nature as the magical creature that she is,” Douglas said. “Nature speaks to us daily if we will only listen, see, and feel her embrace.”
Douglas describes the artistic style of his piece this year as, “surrealistic, mystical, and dimensional in ‘nature’, pun intended.”
Douglas creates art that touches people’s lives.
“It fills my heart to create a work of art that touches another soul and teaches of our natural surroundings,” Douglas said.
