Cary Smith, Waiting, 2018, watercolor, 11 x 14 inches

I am currently focused on painting portraits in watercolor. While I strive to capture the features of my subject, my goal is to use the drops and strokes of paint to evoke their spirit. I believe in celebrating the watercolor medium through an impressionistic tradition; by creating beautiful liquid shapes.

My mother was an art teacher and I grew up in a home filled with every art supply one can imagine. I don’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t drawing, painting or creating. It is part of who I am and it certainly brings me joy. I hope my art does the same for others. That is my goal.
