About Andy Smith Artist
I am a self-taught watercolor artist, painting professionally since 1980 and living in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
Over the years there have been many awards and special recognition. While that has been important and helped build an impressive resumé, I have placed more emphasis on my personal connection with my clients.
A member of "A Painting A Day" group, these miniature originals are posted almost daily on my blog. I also paint larger work in a full size range. Self-published, I have invested in reproductions of my paintings, carefully chosen a printer that offers quality and color closest to my original. I continue to use four color offset printing.
I can be found demonstrating regularly at shows and am happy to have you look over my shoulder! My show schedule is also on my website.
I take pride in being prolific and feel honored that I can earn a living by doing something I so thoroughly enjoy. I am blessed beyond my expectations.
My goal is to create paintings that capture subjects which other people overlook. I love working with light, the use of light and dark and playing with shadows. My paintings are realistic with an underlying subtle abstract use of the brush. Feeling driven to paint, I take pride in being prolific and feel honored that I can earn a living by doing something I so thoroughly enjoy.
