Marty Smith About

Marty Smith, My art is an exploration into the manmade world of the city and the natural world. The rough beauty and loneliness of the city has always interested me. My cityscenes paintings are on-going and explore humans living in the city. The natural world of plants and animals are continually inspiring. 1 comment
