The Art of
"Art is my way of connecting with the world around me. When I sketch a landscape I touch the contours of the earth with my eyes and my fingers record the nuances of creation."
Doug Holdread has been exploring and depicting the landscapes of Southeastern Colorado for forty years. And he has explored his own inner landscape in the process. Doug's work has been featured in numerous solo exhibitions, including one at the National Palace of Fine Art in San Miguel, Mexico.

His paintings are on display at the National Santa Fe Trail Center and the National Park Service has used a number of his paintings for exhibits along the Trail, from Missouri to New Mexico.
Doug coordinates the art program at Trinidad State Junior College and he is working on several murals there, including one depicting the history of the Purgatory River Valley.
