    Ohio watercolorist and Prix de West winner, Lowell Ellsworth Smith (1924-2008) once referenced his theology of painting during an interview. Short but meaningful, the phrase summarized his relationship with art. It was more than a hobby or pastime. More than a career. It was the lens through which he saw and experienced the world. Lowell Ellsworth Smith: My Theology of Painting explores this personal process and approach. Featuring watercolor studies and Smith’s own words and observations, it introduces the man, his methods, and his belief in the power and potential of creative energy. He lived for the moment and painted what he saw and as importantly, what he felt, leaving something of himself in each of his works. With Smith’s guidance, visitors will learn to recognize him through 24 watercolor studies, photographs, and quotations. This exhibition is organized by the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.
