Jon Smith

Booth Number: TBD

Clearwater, FL

Artist Statement:
As Jon developed as an artist, his interest in painting people as the subject of his work led him to the museum setting. Jon became enthralled with the relationship of the people to the art work. He developed compositions encompassing the fine lines of the architecture of the museum building itself while also capturing the spontaneity of people enjoying the art work. He is known for his copies of the great Masters within his own work, doing his own renditions of such greats as Rembrandt, Monet, Degas and Sargent to name a few. But most of what Jon has become known for is the way that he is able to capture the very essence of people. Jon’s numerous’ collectors get a sense of warmth and familiarity with his work wherein Jon uses technique only to the point of getting his communication across with the painting.
