original bird painting by Kim SmithStop by Seasons Olive Oil & Vinegar Taproom in downtown Lancaster this coming weekend where a collection of paintings by our very own art director, Kim Smith, will be displayed among this unique store’s inventory of fresh-made olive oils and balsamic vinegars. Talk about a feast for the senses!

The show, which features paintings of birds and flowers that Kim has created this past year, opens during Lancaster’s First Friday, October 7, with a special reception from 7 – 9 PM. Kim also will be on hand at Seasons on Saturday, October 8, painting live from 11 AM – 1 PM, during Lancaster ArtWalk. Her work will remain on display at Seasons through the end of November.

Kim’s bird paintings, like the one pictured here, have been creating a bit of a buzz. She shares the story of how these paintings “took flight.”

“I met a local photographer through Facebook, who photographs birds,” Kim explains. “I asked him if I could create paintings from his photographs and he graciously agreed.”

Kim gives each bird painting her own touch, which she says stems, in part, from her graphic design training.

“They have a graphic look,” she says. “They are a little unexpected, a little whimsical, a little fun.”
