The very first book David Bruce Smith created was a gift for his mother, Clarice. “Afternoon Tea with Mom” is a coffee table book of her paintings.
A few years later, David and his mother collaborated on the limited edition, “Continuum.” David wrote the text to accompany Clarice’s series of Venetian paintings – a work that was commissioned by The National Museum of Women in the Arts.
A subsequent art/literature partnership was “Tennessee,” and the accompanying prints “Tennessee’s Women.” Clarice created six hand-colored drawings depicting female characters from Williams’s plays. They are available as part of the book, or sold individually.
The series includes:
“Alma” from “Summer and Smoke”
“Maggie” from “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”
“Laura” from “The Glass Menagerie”
“Blanche” from “A Streetcar Named Desire”
“Maxine” from Night of the Iguana”
“Girl” from “These Are The Stairs You Got to Watch”
