Original Painting in Acrylics on Canvas 48" x 36"
If you're Ford Smith, you're going to take grey, drizzly days and interpret them in beautifully brilliant fashion. "Shadow Dancing" is an original painting in acrylics from Ford (48"x36") that is a shining and literal example.
This contemplative painting is a fresh contrast in movement with the silver-tipped clouds scudding in one direction while the rapids, in no rush, splash their way down the canvas in the other.
The bright highlights of the dancing waters are the primary transformative elements when you change your viewing position. By doing so, you experience a day-to-night spotlight effect in the center of the stream, with the surrounding rocks and trees shifting, creating a sense of impending drama.
