we didn't learn until later is that Doug is actually a very accomplished
artist, and utilizes their excursions to do watercolor paintings
of landscapes and seascapes. We first learned of this when the "postcards"
that they sent back turned out to be actual watercolor paintings
by Doug! He has been painting for over fifteen years now, and has
won several art show awards. He also teaches watercolor painting
Doug and Jan
regularly travel to various locations to take classes for various
other artistic skills, including metal-working and wood-working.
They are a great inspiration for us and Mitchell to never stop learning
or trying something new!

You can view several samples of his paintings at the site. There
is also a contact email there for purchasing paintings.
