Ornothomancy No. 3a © Walter FordI have been enjoying the profile of Walton Ford in the January 26 issue of The New Yorker. As someone who spends half a project doing research on their subjects, I can appreciate his approach to making work. As a fan of all things beautiful, I can't help but fawn over his lush watercolors.
Here Walton talks about the story behind his painting, Monkey Banquet.
For more Walton Ford you can view an audio slide show on the New Yorker Web site. The Art:21 site has a proper bio, plus lots of interactive goodies.
