Doug Reina: A Light Touch
Art/Write by Peter Pitzele
Doug Reina has recently completed his first course as a teacher at the Art League of Long Island. Newly brought to the faculty, Doug has nonetheless an association with the Art League that goes back to his boyhood when his parents were among its founders. ”It’s a real privilege,” he said, “to be on the faculty.”
Full disclosure: My wife and I own one of Doug’s paintings. It is one of his cigar box series---works done in oil on the back of cigar boxes. It shows one of Doug’s colleagues at ALLI, Stan Brodsky, peering at an abstract canvas which we see over his left shoulder. This affectionate picture captures Stan’s posture of caring and curious wonder. Though by any marker Doug’s cigar box pictures are works in a minor key, they offer an insight into an unusual quality in an artist, namely a sense of humor.
