Doug Hyde - Memory Lane

Doug Hyde - Memory Lane


framed limited edition on paper of 295

image size: 16" x 25"

Each of these paintings is extremely important to me. Unlike many people, I have never kept a diary, but these images are a visual record of my hopes, dreams and experiences. When I recall a scene I can see it with complete clarity, from the clothes worn by the individuals present to the colour of the sky or the expression in someone's eyes. More importantly though, I remember how each scene affected me and how I felt both at the time and afterwards.
Many of us remember important events such as weddings, births or reunions in this way, but I find I can recall the little things in just as much detail. Whether it is the excitement in my brother's voice, the smile on my wife's face, or the texture of my father's old gym bag, these are the things that inspire my artwork.
