"This is the view out of my yard during sunset. The sun lights the mountains up in day-glo paint.
It just so happen that I had these colors handy within the first two minutes of the ten minutes that this happened.
In eight minutes, I froze a moment in time. I haven't worked on it one second since.
I loved it so much I had it framed: clean, simple white frame. "
David Aaron Smith is an artist/activist who's work centers on social issues. Rather than exploit the situations he paints about, David wants to give back. For each painting sold, David will donate half of his share to a cause listed in the description of the painting. From David: "I think it's a great way to get people involved in my work, and even piquing an interest in art in general. So many times, art is bought and sold for it's aesthetic value only when the art with the greatest value is that which is used as a tool to tell the story of a culture's moment in history. My work is about OUR moment in history and how it looks from my perspective. I think it will speak to those who see the same America." Watch the documentary, "The Last Mountain," to get an idea of David's roots in activism. Along with his large body of political fine-art, David is also working on a "living sculpture" in Death Valley that you can stay at : #davidaaronsmith #villaanitadv
