Natural Life 48x36

Ford surprises his audience once again. Inspired by his own early landscapes--and for the first time in nearly a decade--Ford revisits his classic "Ford Smith landscape" and the wildly beautiful and captivating "Natural Life" (48"x36") makes it's entrance into the art world.

This beautiful poem was written by collector, Jamie Ewing, and is a perfect sentiment for this new original from Ford:

The smoky, crimson, cloudy sky...
The sheer, liquidity of paper tree tops...
The distant, alluring, call of blues...
The ever present strength in number...
Is a familiar comfort reiterated... Assured...
I am safe.
I am home.
Thank you Ford.


Ford never abandons any series, but he does like to take creative detours and challenge himself as an artist. Then when he returns to a concept, he has a refreshed energy and confidence with the genre. Evidenced here in "Natural Life" (48"x36") from the remarkable palette to the surreal skies and abstracted reflections of his trademark fantastical trees. This original painting is both old and new... In all the best possible ways.
