Highwaymen Johnny Daniels - Oil on Canvas Board
22.5 x 28 (with frame)
The youngest of the original 26 Florida Highwaymen painters, Johnny Daniels was born in 1954 in Quincy, Fla. Daniels began making frames for the Highwaymen’s work and was paid 50 cents per frame, watching and learning from the senior painters Alfred Hair and Livingston Roberts. Then he filled in for his brother Willie Daniels, bought his own paint and never stopped painting.
Inducted into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame in 2004, Daniels’ paintings are known for his use of a palette knife to create thick applications of paint and a contrast of warm yellows, reds, and oranges against cooler tones of blues and whites.
