We know, We know...it's a day early, but we're taking a few days off and wanted to make sure we had an opportunity to wish you a happy holiday! Walton Ford is one of our favorite artists who we first discovered years ago when we saw the above Wild Turkey painting at the Museum of Modern Art. Since then, we've become obsessed with his work, buying his books, going to his exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, and checking in on his new work at the Paul Kasmin Gallery here in New York. Ford is one of the premier naturalist painter's of our time, and his watercolors of birds, mammals and other powerful creatures have often been described as "Audubon on Viagra". He is immensely talented when it comes to his skillful and colorful technique but he's also got an insanely wild imagination. Look beyond the main subject in any one of his paintings and you'll discover a deeper narrative with numerous subplots. This man is a true artistic genius and we couldn't be more thankful for the abundant inspiration he's provided us over the years.
