Hello Atelier | A Sunny Outlook

Share this story

Seth Smith is a landlocked Midwesterner. The only sea surrounding him is a majestic ocean of gently waving green fields. But that is just where he is physically. Mentally, he has time-traveled back 50 years, to a rosy-colored mid-century hotel with a deep turquoise pool. That is the magic of his paintings – they aren’t just pictures, but transportation devices to a sunny state of mind.
