Doug Randall was born in upstate New York in 1946. As a child, he was introduced to art by watching the plein air artists painting the fall foliage in the Lake District. After attending the Holden School of Art in 1974, he didn’t get the urge to paint again until 1993. In 2002 he and friend, artist Sherna Cockrill had a two artist show at the Off Broadway Gallery in London, England. He has shown his work in several galleries in the Midwest, as well as his own Gallery, the Rocky Creek Art Gallery in Fayetteville, AR.
“I call my art ‘Mindscapes’ I see what I want to see in my mind and I paint it. They are a composite of places and experiences, which create illusion and emotion. My work could be abstract, impressionistic or traditional. I love the play of colors and how they compliment each other. Many of my patrons have said ‘It reminds me of a place that I’ve been too before,” and for me that’s what it is all about.’”
