Full Moon in Funky Town by Helvi Smith
 16 x 20 

Introducing the Abstract Owl series by Helvi Smith at Fairweather Gallery.

Just like in real life. Their ears don’t sit evenly on their heads. One is often noticeably larger than the other.

Why, so, you ask? This is so each ear can hear a different area and thus help owls sort and identify sounds more easily.

It began innocently enough. The Crayola box with 8 colors soon advanced to the 16 pack then the 24 and then the box with 64 colors with the built in sharpener. There was no going back.

When folks lay their eyes on my works, they can’t help but bask in the pure bliss that radiates from each stroke of my brush. It’s almost like my paintings are little happiness factories, spreading joy like a mischievous art wizard. Trust me, you won’t be able to resist grinning like a Cheshire cat when you feast your peepers on my creations!

I prefer to march to the beat of my own paintbrush. It’s like a wild rollercoaster ride of creativity, and by golly, it’s FUN!

Oh boy, hold onto your hats because I’ve got a wild art adventure to share with you! So, picture this: I stumble upon a denim sofa, right? And in a moment of sheer genius (or madness maybe), I convince myself that I can PAINT that sofa. It turned out to be a stroke of artistic brilliance! Who knew denim could be such a masterpiece canvas? There you have it, my fearless artistic escapade wrapped in a humorous coating just for you. Enjoy the chuckles! 

My work table is like a fashionista’s runway, constantly changing its “canvas couture” every 2 years. It’s like a never-ending cycle of redecorating, making sure my workspace remains fabulously fresh!

The “paintings” on these 2-year-old canvases are absolute masterpieces! –Helvi

I’m practically BFFs with vibrant colors. They’re like my trusty sidekicks, always there to brighten up my day. So says Helvi, the Queen of Chromatic Cheerfulness!
