About David W. Douthat

 
 
  • Biography
    I went to art school and fell in love with painting in a studio at the Art Institute in San Francisco. Kandinsky, and the Abstract Expressionists inspired me to paint abstracts and I have been doing so for over 30 years.  I love to make designs or doodles, the psychedelic lettering of posters in the 60's got me going. I have books and drawing pads that I often refer to in making a painting, from designs I really like, although sometimes I just start painting and a few lines or shapes or colors that tell me where the painting is going, each canvas is a new adventure. People see different things in my paintings so its always an incentive to make more as the language of my work has many meanings and new things to say. The Avant Guard of Abstract Art started with Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Franz Marc, and others of The Blue Rider group in Germany before the world wars.
    Kandinsky wrote a book "Concerning the Spiritual in Art" which will always be a source of inspiration to me. I believe that Art is an expression of the Spirit.
