Sharon Butler photoblogs a visit to the studio of painter Hermine Ford.

Butler writes: "Innovative and expansive on multiple levels – line, color, shape, surface – her own work is uniquely prepossessing and only rewards further contemplation. Building irregularly shaped, sometimes even jagged, oil paintings from exquisite smaller watercolor studies (one is pictured above), Ford forges subtle connections that may at first seem fanciful, yet are grounded in real-world blessings and fears."
