Spasms of Genesis Dawn upon the Unborn by Libby Smith
Oil 20 x 16
 
The tree fairy begins her life of consciousness blood-red blooms celebrating her birth. Her world is barren, empty, and new. It is the tree fairy's responsibility to encourage growth and nurture the new life that bursts forth because she is there. Her tasks seem never ending, a thankless nursemaid. She ushers out the dying giving them comfort in their last moments. She was born into this world to create, and so she does. Prints are also available and will be added soon. Please email me if you need them now.

Before I start getting bad comments, please read why this painting had to be painted. I have been slowly going blind all my life, and lately I've had several days with no vision at all. I'm an extrovert that loves to fly, play, create, and interact with others. I rarely leave my home now due to lack of rides. Getting to art shows is beyond a challenge, so I'm rarely showing now. I'm petrified of completely losing my sight and losing my true love... color. This is my inner scream. My soul being blinded, bloody and bound, and wings disintegrating. This is what's behind my happy-go-lucky constant smile and laugher. This is me.

Biography
Libby Smith has been a classically trained artist for over 29 years specializing in portraiture and figurative.  She loves to paint in oil and watercolor, but also uses many mediums to express her intentions. One thing that makes Libby Smith a bit different is that she is visually impaired.  She lost most her sight about 15 years ago, yet her work has increased in skill and beauty since.  She recently has been losing sight quickly so she has worked constantly trying to paint as much as possible while she still can.  She knows time is short and she needs to start transitioning quickly into sculpture and pottery while she still at things up for her convenience. Her loves are her daughter, her animals, and color.  Always specializing in portraits and figurative, she has branched out to include more subjects to celebrate the vibrancy of our planet and its inhabitants. Her latest oils are celebrating the magic in every human being, her Magical Beings series.  Knowing that her time is limited, Libby has been painting fervently the subject matter nearest to her heart, the beauty of humanity.  She is showing the magic that resides in every one of us.  Painting is getting to be very difficult, so every creation now is treated as if it is her last.  She is pouring everything into these pieces.
She has two different series coming up also.  One is breaking away from her beloved oil paints and using a more tactile medium in preparation for total loss of sight.  The other is oil paintings called Welcome to My World painting only what she actually sees.  She is planning to document both upcoming series on her Patreon account, https://www.patreon.com/LibbySmithStudio
Libby was featured in the Orlando Arts Magazine as well as on the front page of the Orlando Sentinel.
