One of Dr. Barry K. Douglas’ original drawings is once again being featured on the cover of the Northeastern Society of Plastic Surgeons regional conference journal for the thirteenth year. Dr. Douglas’ artwork in previous years have included locations such as Boston, Florida, Philadelphia, Washington D.C.,  Bermuda and others. He has used an array of mediums, such as pastels, water color,  and pen and ink.

The ink drawing of the Baltimore, Maryland landscape is the most recent composition created specifically for the conference, which runs from October 14th -16th this year. There are multiple references to Baltimore’s rich history concealed within the drawing, such as Fort McHenry, a can of Baltimore’s National Bohemian Beer, the logo of a famous sports apparel company founded in Baltimore,  and lyrics to the Star Spangled Banner.
