FLOR63 by Loye Barnard

Loye Barnard, "FLOR 63: Mangrove Spiderlily", oil on canvas, 10" x 10", 2011 (CC).

 

About the Artist:

Loye Barnard serves on boards of several organizations protecting Florida's resources. Painting native flora and landscape gives voice to a vital part of her life. She's traveled much of the world, lived and exhibited in the West Indies. She loves the diversity and tenacity of plants and of people.

 

Artist's statement:

Born near Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah, Georgia, fence rows and fields with wildflowers were my childhood companions. Their myriad sizes, entwining vines, enchanting names, and thrilling colors delighted me then and enthrall me today in north Florida. I am honored to be an integral part of our natural world.
