If a carefree day, brimming with possibilities, could be contained within an expanse of paint and canvas, “Light Seekers” would be the one. Ford has created a phantasmagorical world that pulses with energy and movement. Note the liquid skies and billowing clouds meandering along a horizontal plane. They meld blues and greys with cheery yellows behind the classic Ford Smith trees of buoyant red. Their reflections wave and wobble giddily upon the abstracted waters. A twinkling society of contented and convivial folk inhabit the distant shoreline, inviting the happy mood of this day to remain its guiding force.
