by Douglas Ross, 2003
This acrylic painting captures the lushness of a Minnesota landscape—and the evolution of artist Douglas Ross. A longtime art teacher at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Ross moved to Minnesota after he retired and quickly became inspired by the northern landscapes he’d first known as a teenager. In “Northern Shoreline,” the rich colors and slightly impressionistic textures—craggy rocks, dark waters, verdant trees—provide visual interest to pull the viewer in.
