Coffee and Conundrums
About this artwork
Pondering worries and decisions, our tall, strong hero struggles to maintain control over the realities of the day even while graphic images soar through his thoughts, says artist Lee Smith. Part of artist LeeÕs series on animals with human emotions, she utilizes textural surfaces and rich, intense colors to portray man's best friends in vivid expression. Bold strokes of black and white contrast a collage of papers in muted greens, violet, and gold. Strong coffee in a thick ceramic cup provides fortitude. The demands of the day are detailed in a complex background.
