I am in awe at the incredible talent of Tracy Newton. His prices have skyrocketed as the art world has become aware of his development as a very significant artist. Tracy is the son of the legendary Sam Newton (we are also offering some paintings by Sam). He certainly has inherited a lot of talent from his father, but his personal style adds imagination to his creations. This is a particularly fine painting. A steer is drinking water as a storm approaches. It shows the enormity of nature compared to a huge animal that seems very small in comparison.
I believe Tracy's paintings offer a significant opportunity for appreciation in value. (As with every art purchase, one should buy what he or she loves and consider appreciation a bonus. )

I expect he will be inducted into the Florida Highwaymen's Hall of Fame some day. probably sooner than later.

Who were the Highwaymen? A group of young African-American landscape and skyscape painters, these artists painted their way out of the despair awaiting them as workers in Florida citrus groves and packing houses of the 1950s. Typically they painted on inexpensive materials such as Upson board, a roofer's material, and they sold their work out of the trunks of their cars. With paintings still wet, they loaded their vehicles and traveled the state's east coast, selling them door-to-door and store-to-store, in restaurants, offices, courthouses, and bank lobbies. In succeeding decades, however, Highwaymen paintings were consigned to attics and garage sales. Their work has been rediscovered in the mid 1990's, and today is recognized as the work of American folk artists.
