Description Black woman sweeping her porch with a homemade broom, in the background is a smoking woodstove, with the flavors of a home cooked meal. The house is nestled under an old tree, the afternoon sun resting on old homestead.. In the front of the house a brook runs with geese and egrets in the water. The yard is full of roaming chickens, and clothes is gently flapping in the wind.
Larry "Kip" Hayes, Broussard Louisiana Member Since October 2009 Artist Statement I am a Louisiana artist, who enjoys painting scenes from the South. My canvas ranges from 100 year old cypress boards to the conventional canvas. I enjoy experimenting on different surfaces, the effects are quite interesting! Having grown up on a farm in Louisiana, my paintings portray Louisiana landscapes, real people and life styles I experienced as I grew up.
I am a photographer by trade. When I am not painting, I am roving the country side trying to capture the past, chasing the sunsets, and looking for old landmarks where people no longer reside. I try to fill those old empty places with life as it might have been through my paintings.
My work may be seen at The Hemmerling Gallery of Southern Art- 733 Royal Street, New Orleans, LA; The Jean Bragg Gallery- 600 Julia Street, New Orleans, LA; and by appointment in Broussard, LA.
