Paradise Road

Paradise Road

Acrylic on 18x24 Canvas Board. This painting was inspired after going to a Highway Men exhibit at the Ft.Lauderdale Museum of Art. I loved the way those guys used color. They worked with oil on upsom boards & used pocket knives, thier fingers & alot of imagination to render Florida Landscapes compositions. Alot of seascapes and Everglades scenes, with beautifully colored skyscapes.They used alot of red & yellows, oranges & blues. If you haven't seen Highway paintings check them out, they were self-taught black men & women from the south who painted in the late fifties & early sixties. Wonderful work & my painting doesn't do them any justice at all.

Hi Monte:
Love this colourful, fun painting. I might have softened the straight line at the bottom of the clouds, and faded the colour out a bit to push them back.....but that's just me being picky.
Thanks for the info on the HighwayMen....never heard of them before. Just looked them up and really enjoyed the paintings and info.
Take care,
Mops
