This languorous scene of the St. Lucie River in the morning mist was created by Florida Highwayman Second Generation artist Tracy Newton. The soft mist gives a feeling of contentment. The water approaches the river house, and it laps against the row boat. All told, a painting with wonderful feeling.
Tracy Newton's talent is exciting. His prices are sharply rising as art afficienados see his development and are buying up his works quickly. 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. I believe Tracy's paintings offer an opportunity for appreciation in value. As with every purchase, one should buy what he loves and consider appreciation a bonus.
I expect he will be inducted into the Florida Artist'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.
