"Everyone has a favorite place in nature to visit," says artist Joanie Ford. "This is reminiscent of one of my favorite places. I wanted to add color, but not too much, keeping the scene muted." Joanie painted this when a bit of the autumn color was still evident in the landscape. "I added many layers of pastel to give depth to the artwork. A small waterfall is the focal point of the scene, but there are plenty of places for your eye to travel within it."

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.
