A Colorful Look at Farming: the work of Floyd Gordon

January 6, 2010

If you haven’t noticed from my posts, I have a thing for art. I especially enjoy work that reflects the joys and hardships of farm life. 

Floyd Gordon

Floyd Gordon of South Carolina


The work of Floyd Gordon especially caught my eye. Gordon, one of 19 children, showed an interest in art as a child. His interest led him to obtain a degree from Calfin University in South Carolina. His experiences growing up on a farm surrounded by cotton, corn, soybeans and vegetables are a source of inspiration for his vivid and colorful work.
