Original painting in acrylics. 30" x 24".
With softer hues playing contrary with wildly abstracted reflections, "Mellow Drama" (30"x24") is one of the more arresting and emotional paintings in Ford's current oeuvre. Like a quiet smile that hints of a playful and mischievous nature, this enigmatic original painting seduces the soul with effortless charm. The viewer feels both soothed and energized by it's fragile strength.
Standing in front of this painting, the viewer can fully appreciate the glistening, iridescent silver that Ford used to highlight the delicate, darkening tree branches. Interesting to note that the greys, silvers and blacks are reminiscent of summer storms while the soothing happiness of the blues, pinks and purples are those calm and clear skies.
