Dale Ford Featured Artist
Dale Ford says of her artwork, "With the exception of the gallery containing Digital Drawings & Paintings, all of the images on this site began as photographs. My purpose, however, is not to present the camera's view of the world, but, rather, my own creative vision. At times, the camera and I are in closer agreement as to what we see than at others. An exact, literal, external representation of each subject is of less interest to me than is capturing its 'inner light'. Toward that end, I employ computerized filters and effects to create images intended to express the subject as I experienced it, rather than as viewed by the camera's eye."
I think that when you see her works you cannot fail to see what she means. Dale Ford has a wonderful sense of color, tonal balance and imagination.
Almost like silver!
Colors to soothe.
Dale Ford says about her beginnings into the art world, "In my younger days, I enjoyed drawing and oil painting, basically for my own amusement and amazement. I never felt more alive than when I was in the midst of creating something. Over the years, I lost touch with that part of myself. Happily, the gift of a camera for my birthday a few years ago reignited that old creative spark. Retired, I now spend hours taking and editing photos or creating original digital drawings and paintings on my computer. Time really does fly when you’re having fun, and I am having fun.
My home is situated on the shore of the Long Island Sound in the Bronx, New York. I'm blessed with breathtaking views of the water, wildlife and the Throggs Neck Bridge. With all the wonders of nature right outside my door, I could take pictures forever and never leave my home. I also have several very photogenic cats who are more than willing subjects."
A greeting card with humor!
This is a cat with attitude - or should I say "cattitude"?
So much scintillating light.
As for my favorite - I must admit finding one favorite in amongst Dale's work is like putting a cat in a fish store, but I found something that hit the "AHhhh" spot for me.
April Showers appears like an impressionistic painting from the era of the great impressionists, both in tone and textural appearance. Beautiful work from a very talented woman.
Please be sure to visit her gallery and enjoy so much beauty - you won't be sorry you did. Click her name below.
