"The Park" by Jeffrey Smart
I love this painting for many different reasons but mainly for its randomness and simplicity. I sense Jeff’s approach to painting was very similar to my own. Speaking of me, if you are a dedicated reader of this blog you know I would never use this platform to promote my own work. However, it has become clear to me that when the annals of art history are written my work will stand with that of Jeffrey Smart and Edward Hopper. Smart’s paintings fetch hundreds of thousands (he recently died), Hopper’s tens of millions (he’s been dead for a while), and GNAY’s mere hundreds (he’s alive and well). And that’s fair dinkum.
