The newest Human Nature painting from Ford wasn't available long before it was acquired Christmas Eve by a romantic couple strolling through the gallery.
Look closely. So much emotion passes between this entwined couple at the very moment they look into one another's eyes and know they will be together forever.
Note the metallic golds suffused with royal blues and soft yellows hover behind the myriad of intricately crafted leaves in every shade of green and byzantine wood. Ford masterfully and surrealistically transforms this sylvan scene into best friends turned lovers for life.
