Fall landscape workshop:
Landscapes in Pastel
October 8th, 9th, and 10th, 2010
Come work with Terri Ford and experience the orderly rows of pristine
farmlands and hills that inspired Grant Wood's landscapes and the birthplace
of Regionalist art. This will be a unique opportunity to work with a master
pastel artist in an equally unique location. Space is limited, so register today!
Ford, a native Calfornian, has traveled extensively throughout Europe
and Mexico. Her pastel paintings include landscapes, portraits, the
of Paris, the backroads of France, and Italy...Cortona,
and Venice. Although a studio artist for many years,
she now focuses on
painting en plein air.
"My pastel paintings are rendered in representational and
impressionistic style. Not meant to be clever or symbolic,
my work is a personal and human response to the subject.
Whether loose or tightly rendered I strive to convey an honest
and compassionate portrayal of all that I paint. My interest
lies in creating paintings that reflect the extraordinary character
within the ordinary."
Terri's memberships include:
IAPS Masters Circle
Pastel Society of America - Signature Member
Pastel Society of the West Coast - Distinguished Pastelist
Pastel Society of New Mexico - Signature Member
Sierra Pastel Society - Signature Member
work reflects her keen sense of observation. Light and shadows weaving
across a tapestry of textures and vibrant colors are a trademark of
this outstanding artist."
