The bright and mysterious aura of this incredible original painting from Ford is stimulation to the senses and stirs the soul in a way few paintings can. Ford creates this harmonious night scene with an endless grove of fantastical trees, their byzantine trunks cast soft shadows and beckon the viewer to wander through.
Perfectly balancing the linear arbor, Ford uses his splash technique to infuse the foreground trees with delicate and brilliant boughs that seem to call to the distant moon. The sky is a wondrous show of deep blues and a hint of purple lit from below the horizon, as the sun makes it's descent for the day.
This is one of Ford's most labor intensive works of art, not only because of it's epic size, but his meticulous and creative hand is evident in every square inch of this painting where you'll discover a new detail with every viewing.
