"I always love those wet snowfalls when the fresh snow clings to the evergreens," says artist Joanie Ford. "I wanted to capture that feeling in this painting, exaggerating the color marks with pinks and aqua. Before I started to paint, I applied pastel ground to the surface of the paper where some of the tree branches and bushes would be painted. That allows the pastel to have some texture, as the marks sit on top of the raised ground."

Artist Joanie Ford paints impressionist landscapes inspired by the ever-changing qualities of light. She first learned to paint as a teenager when her father taught her how to color photographs. "Color film was new and photographers commissioned black and white portraits to be hand colored," explains Joanie. In her twenties, she pursued a career in portrait photography and earned a Master Artist degree from the Professional Photographers of America. Joanie later returned to oil painting, and added pastels and watercolor to her skillset. Throughout her art career, she's worked to refine her craft through continued education and mentorship. Today, she works from a tidy home studio where she prefers a quiet environment. Every day she takes time to exercise outdoors and observe the people, pets and nature around her for painting inspiration.
