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.
