Douglas Hunt - Watercolourist - Schreiber

The North Shore Gallery of Douglas Hunt

If you would like to see some superb watercolours of our
area from Marathon to Rossport - check out Doug's
online Gallery. He also sells many of his works at
The Serendipity Restraunt located in Rossport.
His watercolour called ' The Cold Road Home' is so
realistic that you almost feel like you are part of the
painting particpating in the ride on down the highway!
