"Overflow" is an original watercolor painted on heavy weight paper.  I eliminated the proper scale of what should be to get my ideas across.  After seeing this barn I thought of large red apples stacked inside with them coming out of the roof.  A supernatural harvest.  It is the unexpected overflow of what could happen in life.  All you can do is smile when it happens.  I loved the idea of a weathered barn with lush red apples inside.

Getting to Know Dwight

Dwight Smith depicts commonplace objects with a sense of playfulness and humor. His watercolor still life paintings appear conventional in their soft colors and composed compositions, but upon further observation the juxtaposition of unrelated items make for delightfully surprising combinations and comparisons. This transformation of the everyday, and strong graphic style, lend the work a pop feel. However, pop art is generally cool and ironic. Instead, there is a familiar and comforting sense of kitsch and Americana in Dwight’s subjects. In a similar fashion to the work of American artist Wayne Thiebaud, Dwight paints food and sweets of the American appetite. Doughnuts, hotdogs, and lollipops are captured in all of their potent delight. He plays with scale and composition to bring out a sense of the absurd, but ultimately his goal is to make the viewer smile.
