Doug Oliver’s New Style and Technique?

"Creation I"    48x36      $8,900.       SOLD

As a result of the Hould-Oliver collaborative projects, I have completed a piece for the May Gallery in Scottsdale, AZ  (www.maygallery.com) that demonstrates a loose, contemporary style using  southwestern subject matter.  The foundation here is the application of a heavy textured base and then painting in a glaze-wash before adding an impasto style over the base.  This new contemporary look may be a new, fresh direction for me and is an exciting new exploration into painting.  After forty plus years of doing this art-thing, this proves that an “old dog” CAN do new tricks!
