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 still life watercolor has great meaning for me as a person of faith. The wooden spoon is a salt spoon. The three eggs represent who I have faith in. I try and never let life lose its flavor, and I accomplish this by my faith in who is three in one."

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.
