R. Bolton Smith
R. Bolton Smith is an American impressionist painter who was born in the Midwest US in 1944. As a young man, Smith spent winters in Florida which seemed like another world to him and triggered an enthusiasm for varied subjects and exciting coloring that is reflected in his work today.
Smith taught on the college level for several years, after which painting became his full-time occupation. Bolton and his wife, Joyce, for the past 35 years, have traveled the United States and abroad, during which he has captured some of the world's most stunning landscapes.
Five of Smith's paintings were chosen to tour France for a 1976 bicentennial show by the French Ministry of Culture. The paintings toured France for a year. Smith oils have been extensively exhibited in many galleries across the US and France and may be viewed in many corporate collections and projects nationwide, such as Crayola and Liquitex™, International Homes Corporation, Hilton Hotels Corporation, Holiday Inn Systems and the C. G. Rein Galleries.
Smith is best known for his landscapes of the American Southwest, Central Plains, Southeast, and also of the Southeast. Since moving to Fredericksburg, Texas, he has begun painting scenes of our wonderful small town life such as the historical buildings and countryside paintings of peach stands and bluebonnets.
