J. Douglas Thompson is an artist/poet who is a painter of atmospherics which are presented to us in the formation of dramatic thunderheads on late summer afternoons or soft loon haunting mists rising off northern lakes in morning quietude. Captured in acrylic paint, light juxtaposed and rimmed around the blue black depths of storm clouds shows not only the beauty of contrast, color and value, but metaphorically speaks of hope determined to rise above life’s inevitable struggle. He has lived and travelled abroad in more than sixty-five countries and has experienced the eclectic diversity of atmospheric images presented in the vast created natural world.
Prince Edward County, Ontario has become his chosen place of residence. Settled just north of the villages of Bloomfield, Wellington and Picton, near the famous Sandbanks beaches his studio sits astride numerous vineyards, wineries and among many other creative artists.
