Original Painting in Acrylics on Canvas
Sometimes the simple moments are the sweetest. What is it about this sui generis Ford Smith painting that elicits such a sense of peace and spirituality? Perhaps it's the pair of piney tree groves that gently lean into each other. It may be the infusion of grounded blues and dense greens that Ford mingles with such harmonious balance. It could be the quiet stream burbling amiably between the rocky banks. Or ...is it the sweep of citrine skies that draw the viewer so deep, deep into the art?
At first, "Higher Calling" feels like it could be a departure for Ford, but if you know his work well, you soon understand how very "Ford Smith" this original painting actually is.
