Douglas Runyan

A latecomer to art, Douglas took his first painting instruction at the age of 40 in 2004. His interest in art had commenced earlier, though, when he was introduced to the French Impressionists while studying French in high school. While a law student at Indiana University in the 1980's, he discovered the works of T.C. Steele and the other early painters of Brown County. Today, he continues to study and collect the works of the historic Indiana painters and take inspiration from their colorful landscapes, still life and figure works.
Although new to art, Douglas has amassed an impressive resume of show and awards, including Hoosier Salon, (2007, 2009, 2010), purchase award (2007); Indiana Heritage Arts exhibit, (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012) and numerous other awards and shows in Indiana and Ohio. He has exhibited at several invitationals, including an exhibit of Plein Air paintings by ten Northeast Indiana painters at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art in 2011, and had a one-man show at Lakeland Art Assn. in Pierceton, IN (2009).
Oil and pastel are his preferred media. His representational landscapes, architectural scenes and figure works are original creations painted en plein air or from the photographs taken in his many travels. His favorite scenes are usually from Indiana or New England and in his travels, he and his wife often visit places that were, and continue to be, important centers for American art … among them: Monhegan Island, Maine; Cape Ann, Massachusetts; Old Lyme, Connecticut; Jeffersonville, Vermont and Brown County, Indiana. He spends a lot of time in art museums and reading art books, learning from the examples that he finds there.
