Dwight Smith's realist watercolors often play with scale and the pairing of uncommon subjects to share personal and heartfelt stories. Dwight says of this painting, "This modern landscape depicts a happy yellow rubber duck sailing past the coast. My wife and I were visiting a national park near our home enjoying a cup of coffee looking out at the water and landmass on the other side. I said to her, wouldn't it be cool if a large yellow rubber duck was floating by? Some concepts are spontaneous with little thought and could be the best."
