Douglas Elder is a painter who paints on a small farm in the countryside of southern Venango County, near Emlenton, PA.
As a sign painter for many years he learned the essence of communicating through visual language. It's those same qualities of balance composition and harmony that Doug also seeks to bring to his fine art.
His goal is to make something of beauty that would awaken the emotional response in the viewer. To that end he is continually searching for the patterns, the rhythms and the colors of life that reveal the wonders of God’s handiwork.
