Utah Plein Air artist, Doug Braithwaite, has been painting since he was old enough to hold a paintbrush. He pursued his love and talent for art and graduated from the University of Utah in 1991. Doug's bold brush strokes have been easily recognized by admirers and collectors. His work was well described in Southwest Art Magazine as "where realism meets abstraction". Doug was recently featured on the cover of PleinAir Magazine. He has participated in painting competitions across the country and has received dozens of awards.
Braithwaite, in talking about his work, says, "I love painting the things I see every day, cars, trucks, stop signs and people - creating a timestamp of what my life is like here and now"
