This is a unique and original PMS abstract oil painting. It is part of a series of pieces on canvas. This piece was painted with my own personal mantra in mind: Beauty, Color and Texture. This painting is unique in that the thick texture was painted and is arranged like scales on a fish. The texture jumps off of the canvas at the viewer, tempting the viewer to touch it. It is a very tactile painting that each "scale" catches the light from different angles and shines and shimmers. The streaking colors have almost a comic book style quality to them with makes the colors pop even more.

Artist Preston M. Smith (PMS) found himself cross-eyed and with no depth perception as a child. This was the "lens" through which he developed his unique visual perspective of the world, which he now shares as a painter. Preston’s work has transitioned from moody pop surrealist paintings into vibrantly colorful, tactile, highly textured and almost "edible"abstract works. His mantra for his abstract work is "color, texture, and beauty", and his work and life have been an expression of moving from darkness into light. Preston’s work has been showcased alongside David Lynch and at the Inaugural Purple Ball for President Obama’s Inauguration in 2009, where he was commissioned to paint 12 portraits of the President. Very recently his work was selected by a panel of curators as a winner in the 1st 2018 ArtSlant Artprize Showcase. His work has also been on display at the world famous La Luz De Jesus Gallery, and in numerous exhibitions throughout Los Angeles and across the country. Preston's was also recently the subject of a documentary short directed by Tony Lugo entitled "Negativity To Creativity" and his work is in private collections around the world as well in the homes of celebrities such as Ed Harris, Ashley Judd, Josh Lucas, and so forth.
