"Whether I paint a still life, landscape or interior scene, the dramatic use of color, shadow, perspective and form as well as different compositions immortalize that image. Having traveled widely experiencing the richness of other cultures, and living in the Bay Area for over 30 years, the brush and canvas have become my personal method of recording observations. Capturing the vibrancy of a fishing village or a richly decorated sitting room is always rewarding and exciting.” 

 Douglas Morgan has extensively studied and taught undergraduate and graduate students at the renowned Academy of Art in San Francisco, the largest art school in the United States. In addition to winning numerous awards for his work, his oil paintings have been displayed in many juried art shows, both on the West coast and nationally. He is a signature member of the Prestigious California Art Club, Oil Painters of America and Society of Western Artists.
