These paintings by American artist Seth Smith are like beautifully painted, circular reminders of every hot summer road trip that my family ever took. First question from the sweltering backseat… does the motel have a pool!? Fingers crossed that the answer was YES. Perhaps that’s why I love these four pieces so much… four paintings, four pools! {I’m going to assume that the “Pacific Motel” has a pool!}

Happy weekend!

    The paintings are beautiful.
    I wish they would be reproduced on melamine plates and sold at Target so I could afford a full set.

    These are amazing! I can almost smell the summer air and chlorine. They even make me think of the glasses wrapped in paper in the motel room.

    totally… and flowered bedspreads that kind of smell like smoke and laundry detergent… ah, memories ; )

    Wow. I sure do love a good tondo painting. These are great! I enjoy the slightly out of focus look of these. It reminds me of old travel photos taken with a cheapie camera. And the colors! Swoon. Thank you for introducing me to another fab painter Danielle!

    I have such strong feelings for any work that gives me such wistful nostalgia!
