Painted from a photographic reference, artist Joanie Ford rendered this painting with contrasting soft tones. "I wanted to represent the beauty of the falls with pastel colors and deep purples," explains Joanie. "I built up the layers of pastel slowly, saving the brightest accent colors for details such as the icicles and the highlights on the foreground snow mounds."

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.
