Ford has created sheer happiness in this unforgettable, flourishing rose garden. This original painting captures you in an instant and stays with you, like a mental touchstone, there to infuse you with a relaxed bliss whenever your mind goes there.
Ford's beautiful and uniquely individual roses, each in a stunning palette of vivacious colors, are interspersed with soft pastels and deep blues as they gently wave against the textured greys and whites.
Be sure to spend time on the incredible details and the close ups of the tiny glass beads he uses in the lower region, and the meandering vines playing against the stems. This original painting is rife with character and texture.
"There is nothing more difficult for a truly creative painter than to paint a rose, because before he can do so he has first to forget all the roses that were ever painted."
