James Gibson

James Gibson got his artistic encouragement to paint from a local landscape artist named A. E. “Bean” Backus. He and these other artists became the Highwaymen, painting Florida’s raw beauty and mystique. Gibson would paint for days at a time with the other artists. After accumulating a new group of work, he would take off on the highway to sell his paintings in towns north, south, and west of his native Fort Pierce.
