Spotlight: Kay Smith


Carnation Carnival
watercolor, 10" x 15"
Kay Smith

Kay Smith is the first artist in a new series I'm starting here on my blog. Spotlight will be an abbreviated form of my watercolor showcase blog -- I'll show you one painting and give you a brief introduction along with a link to the artist's blog and/or website. I'm planning to post at least every other week.

Kay Smith is an incredibly prolific painter, and her work has a freshness that is delightful and inspiring. Trained as a nurse, she has been painting on a daily basis for much of her life. She took her first watercolor workshop in 1993 and opened Brushworks Studio two years later. She has been very successful both as a painter and as a teacher.

Pop over to her blog for a peek into her painting process and stop by her website for a look at the galleries of her works.
