"The Smokers" by Jonathan Gardner
I don’t smoke, but for some unknown reason I am really drawn to the portrayal of smoke in paintings. I really like this smoky, thought provoking painting featuring two smokers and four cigarettes. I love the cloud like smoke and the way it obscures the women’s faces. There is no judgment here, just beautifully shaped clouds in a well-balanced composition. Why the banana you ask? That is for nutritional balance of course.
