Chris, that is absolutely gorgeous!  Makes me want to turn around and see what's on all the other walls, too.

Chris - I have been in Florida long enough to see most of it.  But I have missed this gallery (although I have gone past the post office).  I will correct the oversight soon (road trip coming up ! )

Thank you for the information.

Good Morning Chris-

I've seen Mr Butcher's work before and it is absolutely phenomenal.

I'll have to stop in to the Gallery when I head over to Bonita on Friday.

Great picture!!!  I stopped in a gallery here in Hawley the other day (we have more than one, too! LOL) and I about cried.  There was one picture on the wall that looked like it could have been painted by the pond where I grew up.  It was soft watercolors - two white birch trees alongside a serene pond.  I did almost CRY it was so beautiful.  I then discovered that it was coming down THAT DAY so I'd never see it again, probably.  No prints available, but i could have had the original for $1200.

Ouch!  Then I DID cry.  LOL

All that rambly nonsense to say...I love art galleries.

Chris ... this is a perfect family outing for those visiting Florida.  We've needed to travel there (from Seattle) to visit friends for way too many years.

When Tami (my daughter) and I visited Clyde Butcher's studio, I took some photos of one of Clyde's photos that Tami wants to buy when she has the money - in the meantime, he's an inspiration!

I love those black and white landscape photos.  Ansel Adams photographs of the National Parks are beautiful.  It looks like Clyde is bringing the Everglades to life in photos.
