Contemporary, Nostalgic American Art and Paintings by Shelley Smith

Shop my selection of high quality, contemporary art and original oil paintings of nostalgic "Sights often Seen, Rarely Noticed." Click on any category and see what's inspired me for its history, irony, isolation or beauty. These images of architecture, transportation - automotive, aircraft, boats, railroad - landscapes, and everyday life subject matter can be purchased as original oil paintings, limited editions, and open edition fine art prints on canvas, paper, metal and more. 

From Massachusetts to Milwaukee to Denver to the small towns in Colorado to San Francisco, for over 20 years I've been seeking subjects that rekindle my child-like imagination - making me wonder what these places and things were like in their heyday, what they are like now, and what will happen to them in the future. Add in some warm sunlight and deep shadows, creating even more drama, and a new place quickly becomes a favorite subject.

Ironically, many of the subjects that grab my attention are things some people see every day. Maybe it's an overpass on their way to work, or an old watering hole they've visited many times, or a retired railroad car sitting on a siding - I'm passionate for the history in these subjects - the same subjects some consider eyesores. Perhaps it goes to show the old adage "One person's trash, is another's treasure," is really true.

I hope you enjoy visiting these subjects with me and perhaps you'll recognize some of the same intriguing characteristics that attracted me in the first place.

If you have any questions about my art prints or paintings, please contact me.
