Original painting in acrylics. 30" x 40".
"Past Life" is among the first paintings in Ford's Monochrome Series.
This creative divergence from Ford is a new genre called Monochromatic Impressionism. In this pensive suite of acrylic paintings, Ford is clearly influenced by his photography roots. He creates this series in acrylic paints with single or dual tones, as he would have with black and white photography. This that allows viewers connect with his art on an entirely different level.
These achromatized (means color removed) landscapes speak with quiet command and without distraction from color. The content-rich nature of this startling series will hold and keep the viewer's eye with calming ease. It's a raw and fascinating approach to a Ford Smith landscape.
