Well I have my first full show at the Winchester Gallery here on the west coast. A few singular pieces have been sold through the gallery, but this is my first show of a group of my paintings. The title of my show is After Print. It was exciting, and very rewarding. Also interesting to hear the reactions from the people who dropped by. My subject matter and influences are eclectic, and I wanted to enjoy the process of making the paintings. There were a number of pieces in the show I've posted here before in my Gallery Work category, and some new pieces. The show is up Oct. 1st - 22nd.

Congrats, Doug! Love the GTO painting and the land line is really cool.
Paul RogersOctober 4, 2011
Beautiful! Thanks for the details. These look so velvety. Your finish fetish would make these fit right in here in California.
Hal MayforthOctober 4, 2011

Woah, really nice Doug. You and I talked about your paintings when we were at the Hopper show. I recall the conversation well and happy to see this follow through. Nice, I want one. Online sales?
Mark GervaisOctober 4, 2011
Doug!!! Amazing!!! I was just thinking about how your work has so many facets. Different styles but still distinctly you. I really love this new stuff! Mind = blown.
Douglas FraserOctober 4, 2011
Many thanks for all your positive support.
Harry, you asked about online sales. I added the link up top in my post.
Elaine ProdorOctober 4, 2011

Leo EspinosaOctober 4, 2011
Woohooo! I'm very happy for you, Doug! I wish I could see the actual paintings.
Aaron LeightonOctober 4, 2011
Big congrats Doug! The new work is fantastic and, somehow, both epic and intimate at the same time. An amazing show from an amazing artist!
Doug JonesOctober 4, 2011
Congrats on the show..the paintings look great! Hope its a sell out.
John CuneoOctober 4, 2011
mmm. Sumptuous shadows.
Rob DunlaveyOctober 4, 2011
Eclectic rules. There's something intriguing and desirable in each piece. Good luck with the show. I hope it's a sell out.
Victor JuhaszOctober 4, 2011
Jesus these are eye popping. Love the poolside image with all the abstracts of light and shadow. Congratulations on an outstanding exhibit.
Adam McCauleyOctober 5, 2011
Stunning stuff, Doug. Best of luck with the show!
Christoph HitzOctober 5, 2011
I'm looking them over for the third time, they look great.
Julia BreckenreidOctober 5, 2011
Beautiful work Doug - and I love the title of the show as well!
Steve BrodnerOctober 5, 2011
This is really about looking and seeing. How much to note, how much to suggest? This negotiation is brilliant as are your color, contrast, comp, content choices. Stop me before I alliterate again. Marvelous D.
Douglas FraserOctober 5, 2011
Jumping in to express my thanks for your supportive comments. I do wish all of you could drop in at the gallery. Alas we are in many places.
Mark FisherOctober 6, 2011
The way you angleize your curves and fuzzerate your edges is superlative.
May you sell out the show Doug.
Carl WiensOctober 6, 2011
Congrats on the solo show, Doug! That orange slice is very tasty. Great work.
MarcOctober 6, 2011
Congratulations, Doug. I love the sharpness and planar quality of your oil paintings, and particularly like the muscle car. Nice work.
Greg ClarkeOctober 6, 2011
Marvelous group of images Doug--the austere "Landline" might be my fave.
Sean KaneOctober 6, 2011
Doug, The Eye in the window beckoned me into the gallery today. These are a real treat to see in person, technically and for your viewpoint. Congratulations!
Mark McBrideOctober 7, 2011
Amazing group of images you put together there Doug. My favorite is the Poolside, I like the way you made the shadows look on the ground and the lady there as well. That towel just speaks to me...ahhh blue yes, my favorite. My wife likes slippers like the ones in your painting. Congratulations on the show Doug.
Gérard DuBoisOctober 7, 2011
All the best for the show Douglas. I have a feeling it will be crowded and successful.
Katherine StreeterOctober 8, 2011
so great!!! congratulations, and best of luck for the show!
Dana MacKenzieOctober 28, 2011
I made sure my Dad (who lives in Victoria) swung by to check out your show, since I could not be there. He had nothing but amazing things to say about seeing your work in-person. Quick question: will be you making any prints of your work, by any chance?
Douglas FraserNovember 1, 2011
Please, thank your Father for coming in. Prints of the work in my "After Print" show are not a priority. The premise of these pieces are the originals. There are reasonable priced, and handmade.
Coco MasudaNovember 15, 2011
Belatedly, beautiful work! Landscapes & still life are classic, but "Poolside" is an interesting development of your technique. Faces in your work are so iconic, so not showing her face makes it interesting. I love it.
