All of us at IAPS are working very hard behind the scenes to get everything up on
the IAPS website and also to produce the catalog of the show.

So at this point, I am VERY busy and have no time to paint.  BUT, I'll be back painting

I took the photo up in the Adirondack Mountains in Upstate NY a few years ago
while visiting my brother, Woody.  I'm going to call it "Funky Pines" because that's
what they are ..... funky!!  They grow like that up there and the shapes are always
really interesting.

©2012 Paula Ann Ford, A Tree's View, Oils on Raymar panel, 6"x6"

About 4 years ago I was out taking photos for reference material and I came upon this field and fell in love.  The only thing was, when I took the photos, I never even saw the 3 layers of mountains in the background!!  I was shocked when I got back to my computer and downloaded the photos!!  The field was beautiful in itself, but with the added mountains in the background, it became magical!!

©2012 Paula Ann Ford, Tennessee River View, Oils on Raymar panel, 6"x6"

This piece is inspired by a photo I took a couple of summers ago while plein air painting.  We were at Raccoon Mountain and the Tennessee River runs right next to it.
