I enjoy watching birds, especially shore birds. They are always busy. There is always a wave they have to dodge or a morsel to eat. "Sunday Brunch" is the title of this original shoreline-themed watercolor. It is painted on a full sheet of watercolor paper. Full sheets are not trimmed, thus the rough edges. We do have beautiful beaches here along the Gulf of Mexico and many shore birds.

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.
