Works in oil by Betty Anglin Smith and Mark Daniel Nelson. --- Our surroundings are those things around us that we see on a daily basis to the point that perhaps we don't see them at all. These buildings, roads, streetcorners, trees, landscapes and skies are part of our everyday existence and can easily become mundane. However, the artist sees the same objects as abstract shapes, interesting designs, and exciting color and contrast when the sunlight strikes just right. Through the artist's portrayal, the viewer develops an heightened awareness of the beauty and complexities of his "surroundings".
