VIEW IN MY ROOM
“Winter Path”, acrylic on canvas, 60 x 60 cm/23.6 x 23.6 in. is my first painting of 2021 and part of my Forest Series. On a cool morning in late December 2020, I took a walk in the dune forest in De Haan, along the Belgian coast. Bundled up with hat and gloves, I inhaled the crisp air and felt the sun on my face shining through the bare winter trees. As I walked I noticed a path to my right, long and narrow and brilliantly sunlit. A mother and child ahead of me turned and jogged down the path in sync. I watched as they disappeared into the sunlight and knew this would be my next painting. This winter colour palette includes dark purples and lighter mauves. It displays a mix of the darker harsh winter colours against soft yellow, brown, and blue tones.

Laura K. Smith (1989) is a Canadian-born landscape painter based near Antwerp, Belgium. From a young age, Laura drew and painted with her grandfather (‘Opa’) and was inspired by the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art movements she learned about in school. In Canada, the United Kingdom, France and Belgium, Laura studied Studio Fine Arts, Art History, and Art Theory, and earned a Ph.D. in Literature in 2018. Laura has worked in academia and as an art consultant, gallery assistant, and researcher, for internationally renowned art institutions including the Victoria and Albert Museum and Colnaghi, the first commercial art gallery in the world. She is now pursuing her own painting practice professionally. Peaceful, joyful, strong, colourful, dream-like, and haunting are some of the ways in which Laura’s paintings have been described. Using acrylic on canvas, Laura paints colourful landscape scenes of her home country of Canada and her new home country of Belgium with the aim of sharing the joy that she experiences in the practice and appreciation of art. More recently, Laura has started working in watercolour. Complementary to her painting practice, Laura writes about her process and inspiration in her blog, available on her website.
