As a teacher at the Colorado Institute of Art, Colorado Christian University, and The Art Students League of Denver, Doug Dawson has advocated the En Plein Air, or “in the open air” style of art, which involves painting outside. His work has been featured in scores of magazines, museum exhibits, and books and societies that deal with the pastel medium. We think he would be a great addition to the Love and Water community because he is committed to teaching his skills to a new generation of painters and artists!

This piece, entitled “Caught Dreaming,” could be paired with The Lamp, an organization that teaches youths to reform and improve the media.
