Agrarian Landscapes by Doug S
ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens is delighted to unveil the newest paintings by California landscape painter, Doug Smith.
Doing What's Natural, acrylic on canvas, 36 x 71 in.
Known for his unique depictions of agrarian landscapes, Doug Smith has long been fascinated by the vast mosaics of the archetypal American West. The inspired, stunning paintings blend aerial landscapes, Smith’s experience in graphic design, and a traditional detailed vignette showing a peek into pastoral American life.
A Job Well Done, acrylic on canvas, 48 x 60 in.
With vivid planes of color and an attention to refined geometric composition, Smith’s paintings are an intimate mix between abstract expressionism and a small dash of realistic landscape painting, inspired by long flights over the country and even longer drives through it. The inclusion of weathered barns and silos, wraparound porches, and rustic windmills transport the viewer to idyllic and familiar scenes reminiscent of travels through the Western and Midwestern United States.
Artistry of Dirt, Home at Last, Well Done, acrylic on canvas, all 40 x 30 in.
