|EYES OF THE SOUL - by Terry Lynn Smith. Terry is a figurative painter from Colonial Heights, Virginia. Fusing hyperrealism with beauty, youth, eccentric hairstyles, and fashion, she captures pure emotion, rendering timeless, soulful portraits. Each unique portrait is full of passion and vibrant colors, creating highly refined, personal, stylized works. Terry discovered her distinct style and fondness to paint after her long battle of surgeries followed by several painful illnesses. Expressing her mood and soul on canvas became her passion as she mastered the art of oil painting. This exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery, East.|
