Tomorrow night in Denver, Kris Lewis (interviewed) returns to David B. Smith Gallery with a striking new body of work after a successful showing there in 2009.  The new collection of oil paintings feature his detailed renditions of mostly female characters all while focusing on capturing the emotional essence of each portrait. Also, as you will see, he continues to explore themes of the ocean and interplay of water in some of the works.
