Copyright © J Douglas - Fine Art

Northern Virginia based artist, J (Just J) Douglas, has been honing his artistic skills his entire life.  This native Texan started his career as a portrait artist in 1976, but worked only in black and white.  In 2008, J met and watched Henry Asencio paint in person.  He was so inspired by Henry, that he bought all of the supplies to paint in oils, and has never looked back.  Henry and J have become friends through the years and continue to inspire each other.   His award winning equestrian work began in 2010 when his wife, Cindy Battino, asked him to create a few horse paintings for his next show.  That was the catalyst that sparked his love for the horse.  You will find his work in palaces, presidential homes, estates, resorts, galleries and many homes around the world.  "Destiny", his largest piece to date, can be found hanging in the Salamander Resort and Spa in Middleburg, VA. J's evolution from portrait artist, commercial artist, martial artist and finally equestrian artist has been an exciting journey.  J likes to say, "I can not wait to see what I will be creating in five years."  He says this, because he truly feels that art is an ever evolving study, and that mastery is a title for those that have passed on in life.  J's studio is just off of the Shenandoah River and tucked away in the foot hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. You can support his journey and become a patron of the arts for as little as $2 a month.  Click here. Be sure to subscribe to our email list to get the latest news, shows, classes, auctions and more!

The 2006 Winter Olympics was her sixth.  She hired J to design something for the bottom of her luge.  This is the image he created.  It was featured on an IBM ad during the Olympics.  For the next couple of Olympics J created images for Anne and the Virgin Island Winter Olympic Team.  She is training for the 2020 Summer Olympics as an archer. You can see the IBM commercial for the Nagano 1998 Olympics.  See if you can spot her logo that J created for her ... CLICK HERE!​​​​ Commission your own work of art!  We can create a work of art just for you.  We will set up a meeting to discuss what you want.
