Nature’s Paradise – soft pastels on Amersand Pastelbord

This was one of two pieces juried into the 2009 Northeast National Pastel Exhibition.  16"x20" – I just love fall and winter.  The colors, smells, sounds, are all so wonderful.  That's why I called it Paradise.

About Paula Ann Ford

Paula Ann Ford was raised in a small town in Upstate New York where the landscapes are absolutely breathtaking. Having moved away from the northeast in her 40's, and missing the beautiful landscapes of that area, Paula turned to art in 2000, first studying under Kay Walton of Texas, and then Paul Friske, PSA, also from Texas.  She started painting in acrylics and oils and then in January of 2004 she discovered and fell in love with soft pastels.  Paula has been a Guide in the Pastel Forum of Wetcanvas for several years.  She often gives lectures and demonstrations, and because of her love for teaching, is now giving workshops in beginning soft pastels.  You can see Paula's work at
