It has been so enjoyable for me to see how the art of the Florida Highwaymen has evolved over the years. Each artist has his (or her) unique style. James Gibson perfected his monochromatic works. Every artist has paintings that range from his or her early 'not as special' works to the outstanding works. I've always tried to find the outstanding works! Of course they usually cost more, but I feel are well worth it. That's why the people looking to get a 'bargain' may be sacrificing quality! Additionally, because of the Highwaymen's popularity there are fakes being made and offered. Always buy from a reputable dealer.
James Gibson's technique consisted of first creating the background of his landscapes. Then he painted in the dark colors. The brighter colors go on top, making the artwork come alive. His early frames, like those of other Highwaymen, were made from crown molding. He later started purchasing frames that weren’t selling. Later, he purchased a variety of frames that he liked. James selected simple frames that wouldn’t detract from his paintings. He liked to visualize the frame and the painting working together.
:Among the many awards and honors bestowed on James Gibson is the 2005 Florida Ambassador Art Award. His work was displayed in the Florida Supreme Court in 2000 and 2003. His artwork is in the collections of many notable, including former Secretary of State Glenda Hood, former Governor Jeb Bush, and former U.S. Vice-President Hubert Humphrey. Former Governor Charlie Christ used one of his landscapes on his Christmas card when he was in office. He created an ornament for the White House Christmas tree and several of his paintings have been shown in the White House collection. Two of his brilliant landscapes were featured in Steven Spielberg’s film, Catch Me If You Can. His beach scenes with windblown palm trees were perfectly placed on the wall of a 1960s Florida motel room.
James Gibson's best works are in high demand. This certainly is an outstanding work.
