    About the Artist: Dennis Smith is as much a philosopher as he is an artist. His work is a window into who he is and his views on life. Smith's impressionistic style captures his exuberance for life and embodies his passion for transcendence –expressed through the spontaneity of children, reflections of the past, and hopes for the future.
