HERE’S A FRAMED PAIR (2) OF SIGNED ORIGINAL VINTAGE MODERN SOUTHWESTERN WATERCOLOR PAINTINGS ON PAPER CREATED BY CHANDLER, ARIZONA ARTIST MARILYN SMITH TITLED “INDIAN POTS” THAT DISPLAY BEAUTIFULLY RENDERED IMAGES OF NATIVE AMERICAN POTTERY VASES / VESSELS (PROBABLY ACOMA PUEBLO) WITH WHITE, RED, AND BLACK GEOMETRIC DESIGNS, EACH PLACED WITHIN A VISUAL SETTING OF BROWN DESERT ROCKS WITH A BLACK BACKGROUND!
Please Note: These beautifully-rendered watercolor paintings still retain their original artist-made double matting, oak wooden frame, glass front, and acid-free foam-core backing. To this end, the artist added a third element between the two paintings, an ancient Native American pottery shard, as an accompanying visual construct. In addition, the artist attached a label to the frame’s backside that reads:
Title: Indian Pots
Artist: M. Smith
Size: 11 X 20
Inv#: 1442W, 1443W
Dimensions: Each of the watercolor paintings themselves that can be viewed within the matte board measure approximately four and three quarters inches (4 3/4”) in height by six and three quarters inches (6 3/4”) in width but are most likely larger as they extend underneath the matte board. The overall dimensions of the oak wood frame are approximately twenty one and one quarter inches (21 1/4”) in height, twelve inches (12”) in width, by one and one half inches (1 ½”) in depth.
Signature: Each watercolor painting is signed “M. Smith” located in the bottom left corner. And, as already mentioned, there is an original artist’s label on the frame’s backside (information listed above).
Condition: Excellent and clean condition all the way around – absolutely beautiful!

Marilyn Johnson Smith Bio
I am currently residing in Arizona and have previously exhibited my artwork in galleries in Arizona and Wisconsin. Having lived in both states, it has given me very diverse subject matter as is evident in the variety of art pieces I have posted in my portfolio.
I also have appeared in several art shows in both states and received various awards, including the Wisconsin Regional Art Show Travelling Exhibit Award for my watercolor painting, 'Spring In Tlaquepaque'. While working for the Dean Medical Center in Madison, WI, I completed several commission pieces to be displayed in their clinics ('Comin' Home', 'The Catch', 'Little Mill', and Christine's Ride'). I also created their employee birthday card for several years in a row.
During the June 6-12, 2011, I was honored to receive a Best of Show Award while being featured on the Copper Flame Virtual On-Line Gallery.
In 2012, I published my first book titled "Art From My World" which was a collection of my artwork through the current year. It can be found on the website for BLURB.
During 2013, one of my paintings, "Lazy Days" was chosen for greeting cards representing the Veteran's Organization For The Blind.
In 2014, four of my Southwest paintings were chosen to be used on the TV show Longmire, which aired on A&E in June. Selected images were: "Singing Down The Rain", "Four Peaks Vista", "Treasures of the Desert", and "Sunrise Stampede".
