Mark Nesmith
Beaumont, Texas

Some artists travel the globe seeking the wonders of the world for inspiration. Mark Nesmith finds the sublime in the everyday of Southeast Texas. He calls it “transcendence from a car window.” It could be a glimpse of the sky dancing, the ripples of a canal on his drive to work, or the silhouette of a tree while walking through the neighborhood. “Almost everything I paint is connected to memories of the places and the times I spent there with the people I love. That’s what remains with me over time.” Mark earned his B.F.A. in Studio Fine Art from Lamar University and also studied art at the University of North Texas. Fun fact: Mark teaches art at local schools in his spare time, everything from toddlers in Pre-K to high school fine art classes.

Thank you Frank! Painting water is one of my favorite obsessions. I'm happy to hear it arrived safely and hope you enjoy it for years to come!

Hi Mark- I received your painting, "The Space Between" and it was all I hoped it would be. I love the colors and texture that makes the water come alive. Thanks so much and keep up the great work that you do. Cheers, Frank

Terrific Mark- I can't wait to see it in person- Thanks so much- Cheers, Frank

Hi Frank! Thanks so much for your interest in my work! "The Space Between" is wired to hang with braided wire attached to small d-rings screwed into the wood stretcher bars. Let me know if you have any further questions. I'll be happy to help any way I can.

Hi Mark- I like your painting- "The Space Between" - and it just fits in the corner of my artwall. But tell me please if it is ready to hang- with a wire or just saw tooth device. Thanks, Frank
