It's all in the details, and in this mellifluous, iconic Ford Smith painting there are millions you'll absorb all at once (pinch out to zoom in on them!). The resounding effect on your artistic sensibilities is what made Ford Smith one of the world's most celebrated artists. Ford goes beyond his own norm as he fractures both water and foliage with layers upon layers of meticulous mosaics. The palette is a satisfying wonderment, blending cool and warm hues with inspired dexterity and effect.
It is not often that Ford revisits his own, groundbreaking style of painting, but he did in "Living Poetry" and the decades of experience are gloriously reflected.
