Wait! Is that a portion of Van Gogh's illustrious Starry Starry Night we see adorning this vase of lively blooms? Why, yes it is! Ford cleverly honors one of his greatest painting influences in this remarkable new original painting in mixed media. If you're wondering what the mixed media might be, look closely at the honored vase... Ford painted atop a paper towel then soaked it in varnish for a textured, magnified canvas experience. He conceptualized this beautifully brilliant technique during earliest painting days and it's a rare and welcome return in this enchanting painting that indeed and in every way "goes beyond".
