As a lover of all things beautiful, including Friday afternoons, I thought I would share with you some work of an amazing artist I know. John Ford is a painter based in Connecticut who paints very beautiful landscape scenes of New England (I love you New England) and Ireland. They are very serene but also quite dramatic. I like them because they appear soft without being cliche. Here is his bio and he shows at Paessagio Gallery in Hartford.
I would love to have one of his paintings for my mini but growing collection of art. I love the quality of the light and texture in each one. Some of them even appear abstract.
