Vancouver artist Gordon Smith is one of the most prominent and prolific artists working in Canada today. For more than 50 years, he has painted the Canadian landscape and explored the mediums of drawing, painting and printmaking in inventive and expressive ways. This documentary reveals an artist in the twilight of his life and at the pinnacle of his career. It follows him in his current process of examining the interplay between what is directly taken from the landscape and what is intrinsically his own response to it, a key dynamic in his work.

A definitive view of Gordon Smith's philosophy and approach to his work is rounded out by comments from art curators on his place in art and praise from mid-career artists for Smith's generosity in his encouragement of young, upcoming artists.
