These prints were sent by a new Millard Wells Art Collector, purchased in great condition (if memory serves) at an auction recently.    While I’m researching these prints, trying to find out when they were printed, when the original was painted and information of that type, if anyone who sees these knows anything before I find […]

LeMoyne Hall and his wife, Allie were my mother and father’s dearest friends when we first moved to the Florida Keys from outside Chicago, IL in the late ’60’s.  This painting belongs to LeMoyne and Allie’s eldest son and his wife, also dear family friends.   If I hadn’t seen these birds with my own eyes […]

“Everglades Forever” Millard and Jeanne gave this painting to Julie and I when we were married. It was titled “Everglades Forever.” Many years later, I sponsored a massive Everglades restoration bill when I was in the Senate. It was a significant enough piece of legislation that it needed a name, so when I was home […]

One doesn’t cross to visit the back country of the Florida Bay without being awe-inspired by the quiet beauty of this unique place.  Millard’s many trips to the outback seared a deep appreciation of this heaven on earth into his heart and into his many works of art.

Indian Key Dock

A flock of roseate spoonbills brighten the approach to the dock at Indian Key, the historic state park accessible only by boat.  Now considered a ghost town, Indian Key once served as the seat of Dade County back in 1836, and visitors can wander the island’s skeletal remains of buildings that burned to the ground in […]

Florida Keys Legacy

Roseate Spoonbills are the striking aspect of “Florida Keys Legacy”.  Spoonbills are now rarely seen seasonally around the small islands that dot the waters off the cape where the Everglades meet the Florida Bay.  Their unique rich pink is complimented by pastels of blue-green and lavender in the sky, and the clear waters reveal bonefish lingering near the mangroves.
