The Art and Music of Dan Smith

These two large works (20x30) were created for the Dowagiac Up Front Art Walk, a part of the annual Dogwood Festival. The painting on the right, "1915 Millpond," was named first runner up in the 2015 contest. I was very pleased with the award, and doesn't FIRST runner up sound so much better than saying second place?

Steve Barber ( used this illustration as the cover for his "Lucky Lindy" CD of music for children of all ages.

This is a series of Michigan themed works. Prints of the first two are currently being sold at "Amy Zane," a gift store on the downtown Kalamazoo Mall.

This is an example of a zentangle portrait, a fun project that makes an excellent gift.
