Selling Original Fine Art Oil paintings and Giclées

Wade Douglas admires and studies the works of different historical and contemporary master oil painters such as John William Waterhouse, Pino Daeni, William-Adolphe Bouguereau, Daniel Gerhartz, Royo, and Michael & Inessa Garmash. Their ability to express the emotion of a loving soul with their portrayals fascinate him. Like the masters who inspire him, he choses to concentrate on the female form to tackle the challenge of capturing their subtle physical characteristics and depth of feeling. In his view, women are one of God’s greatest masterpieces on earth. In observing the character of women like his spouse and female colleagues at West Point, he saw that women have the courage and strength to do things men could do, despite society often portraying them as weak. Having been exposed to both sides of machismo, Wade noted that women, in their humility, indeed possessed a strength that is unique and therefore admirable. It is through this feminine lens that Wade chooses to envision his fine art pieces. Since God embodies perfection regardless of gender, Wade seeks for his art to give new perspective to scripture and the feminine form together as God’s creation. This is why he chooses to embed a scripture verse into each of his works. Understanding that the feminine form can be perverted by the beholder like any of God’s other creations, he does not intend for his subjects to entice. Wade’s portrayals are of women being the main character in a phase of their own life story. Like men, women are used by the Lord in many ways besides just simply temptation and procreation. As the protagonist, the female faces many trials which Wade chooses to portray with symbolic devices showing timeless beauty from the historic and contemporary to fantastic fictional lands.
