"Happiness Held Aloft" by James Andrew Smith

"My work in still life draws upon my admiration for traditional Dutch painters, while re-framing them within the context of American Realism. Incorporating florals, garden produce, humble objects and reflective glass, my compositions are composed to evoke respect for the objects being portrayed." The artist lives and works in Tulsa, OK., and is represented by the Wally Workman Gallery, Austin, TX
