September 19, 2013 – Dr. Douglas will showcase his artistic talents as one of his original water colors is set to be featured on the cover of the Northeastern Society of Plastic Surgeons regional conference journal for the tenth year. The brightly colored Washington D.C landscape is the most recent composition created specifically for the conference. Thematically illustrating the location of each symposium, Dr. Douglas’ originals in previous years have included locations such as Boston, Florida, Philadelphia and Bermuda.
What once began as a passion project for Dr. Douglas, who majored in studio art in college, has since become a tradition for both the doctor and the largest regional society in the United States. The 30th Annual Meeting, which will begin on September 20th, will include Dr. Douglas’ latest piece, a brightly colored view of the Washington Monument. “Composition is often the most time consuming part” began Douglas. “I enjoy working with water colors because it allows the painting to maintain a mind of its own. For this year’s waterscape I wanted to include yellow tones, so I focused on incorporating a powerful sunset.”
