Slice of Heaven
original painting by Ford Smith
Ford imagines and creates that rare and wonderful moment in nature… one that startles and pauses you with a surge of emotion and divine appreciation. This bucolic scene sprung from his imagination like a surprise gift from the heavens themselves. Was he influenced by the season of Augusta? Perhaps “inspired” is more relevant, since Ford chooses to disengage from an actual course depiction and lets his mind envision a singularly expressionist scene open to private interpretation.
