Phil Smith is a native of Portland, Oregon and has been painting for over 35 years. He was born legally blind and has limited vision in only one eye. Because of this, his innate perception of color, light and depth is amazing as demonstrated by his paintings.

Phil paints in acrylic and oil and has explored a full range of subject matter including landscape, seascape, still life and portraits. He also does many commissioned paintings.

Water and LightHe has displayed in art shows hosted by Artists with Disabilities, Beaverton Arts Commission, Canby and Welches Art Festivals and most recently in the Audubon Wild Arts Festival in Portland.

We have a nice selection of Smith’s work, including this awesome beach scene where the ocean comes to life.
