About this artwork
As an artist, I constantly look for the ordinary to elevate and give it the attention that it deserves, says artist Dwight Smith. In this painting, it was my wife's dresser. A beautiful rustic antique walked by and used every day. Function follows form for this piece of furniture until one day I looked at it in a different light. It represented a pear tree with two pears gingerly resting waiting to be picked.
