Evidence of Life
About this artwork
Living in Florida where it is hot and humid, I always get excited when the calendar turns to autumn with the remote promise of cooler weather, jokes artist Dwight Smith. Different species of pumpkins and squashes arrive in the store and I want to paint them all. Dwight playfully arranged this still life version of our solar system using a bright orange pumpkin to represent the sun and oversize marbles as planetary references.
