Ford Smith takes us on a mindful journey into a surreal landscape with this piece. The viewer may note his Klimt influences in the energetic mosaic-like patterns of the water and also recognize his own iconic slender trees silhouetted against an arresting sunset. His sense of balancing the dream world with his impressionistic landscapes, vibrant palette and the juxtaposition of cultural influences makes the dream-like appeal of Mindful Journey a distinguished work of art in Ford's oeuvre.
