The painter, Edward Hopper said “If you could say it in words there would be no reason to paint.” That’s why I paint. I paint what I see. I paint what I think. I paint what I want to say. My work is about life and living. My art is intensely personal, yet it is meant for all to find meaning. I use images of my childhood culture as well as current  culture to construct allegories, sometimes transparent, sometimes not, that represent my life and the adventure it has been.There is no rhyme, reason, theme nor higher artistic purpose in the work presented other than they all come straight from where the muse takes me at the time. My images deal with fighting cancer, surviving cancer and fighting cancer again as well as being a retrospective of my life, as well as my own personal thoughts on life as it passes by us. - Robert L. Smith
