In his poem “The Light On the Garden,” MacNeice captures the sun’s inexorable movement as it tallies our days. One Floridian, A.E. Backus, spent his life capturing the tropical sun as it played across the landscape. While lazing in Central Florida, we enjoyed an afternoon at the A.E. Backus Gallery savoring his depictions of sun on clouds, waters, sails, and wildlife. His eye for tropical light heightened our awareness of the sun’s stunning palette during our visit.
One of Backus’ captivating images. For more on Backus see: http://www.indianrivermag.com/articles/winter17/BackusBook.pdf
