Early to Rise 30x40

This early Ford Smith painting radiates with tranquility and promise in it's brilliant simplicity.  Offered from his personal collection, this is a rare original from the years that first launched his notable painting career (circa 2004).  Ford doesn't sell many paintings that he chose to keep, but we are releasing a few here and there so his more recent collectors have the opportunity to appreciate and participate in these beautiful, historic works from his oeuvre.  As a artist who is continually challenging himself and growing, seeing the timeline of his paintings is an exhilarating and thought-provoking experience.
