During a walk in early October 2020, I was making my way down a narrow and slightly steep path when I looked up and was stunned at the view. It was not an expansive view, one which allowed me to see far into the distance, but rather my view of what lay ahead was suddenly interrupted. I saw, a few meters in front of me, the sunlight coming through the trees just up ahead. I was in awe of the lush green leaves of a tree that hung over the trail and the bright red berries on a bush to my right. Small bright leaves were scattered on the trail. It was a special and cozy sight. I knew this was a scene to paint!

The painting is outfitted with a thin metal wire held in place with two eyescrews, making for easy hanging on your wall.

Laura K. Smith (1989) is a Canadian landscape painter based in Brussels, Belgium. Inspired from a young age by the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art movements, Laura studied studio fine arts, art history, art theory, and philosophy for over a decade and is now pursuing her own painting practice professionally.

Laura holds a Ph.D. in Literature from KU Leuven (Belgium), a Master’s degree in Contemporary Art Theory from Goldsmith’s, University of London (UK), and a Bachelor’s degree in Studio Fine Arts with honours in Art History from Bishop’s University (Canada). Laura has worked in academia as a post-doctoral researcher and as an art consultant, gallery assistant, and researcher including in internationally renowned art institutions in Europe and Canada.

Peaceful, joyful, strong, colourful, dream-like, and haunting are some of the ways in which Laura’s paintings have been described to her. Using acrylic on canvas, Laura paints colourful landscape scenes of her home country of Canada and her new home country of Belgium with the aim of sharing the joy that she experiences in the practice and appreciation of art. Complementary to her painting practice, Laura writes about her painting process and inspiration in her biweekly blog, available on her website.
