Doug Parry: Amalia

Amalia. oil on canvas.  20 x 14 inches.

-Exhibited in galleries and museums nationwide for the past 21 years.
-Taught painting for the past 10 years, at institutions from coast to coast, including Pratt Fine Arts Center and Kirkland Arts Center.
-Currently preparing for his second solo show at art 101 in Brooklyn, NY, in 2010

A love for Warner Brothers' Looney Tunes cartoons as a kid led to Parry's discovery of fine art and specifically, the work of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.  Later, a taste for a more realistic approach re-introduced him to the paintings of Edouard Manet.  Today, Parry continues to focus on the inherent beauty and truth he finds from his subjects, capturing a painterly mood and feel, still influenced by the Impressionist painters.
