|Buck performing intricate Wiring on GL1800 Police Motorcycle (the
barrell shaped object on the right front of the Goldwing is a Whelen
Howler Siren generally used on Ambulances and Fire Trucks)
|First purely Commercial Format, illustrating a Business and its many Products & Services. The painting size is 20" by 24" Framed.
|"Dandelion Wine" 16x20 Fluid Watercolor Paper,
140 Lb. Cold Press Finish (crafted in European Mill
since 1618). Medium is SAVOIR FAIRE Gouache, a
concentrated watercolor which makes it heavier and
more opaque when rendering 'small details'. As seen in
prior art productions, small figures are highly detailed
under Artificial Sun Lamps, a large Magnifying Glass,
and Faber-Castell Albrecht Dürer Watercolor Pencils.
|This setting is circa 1910 somewhere in the Hill Country of Central Texas. A painting likely to be judged by some as too saccharine
with its rich colors and a bucolic theme excessively sentimental. But for me it was an escape from today's global unrest and omnipresent
threats back to a time in America when simple things such as a rural picnic among four young ladies was common activity. In my
childhood I have many times seen such profusions of wild flowers and butterflies; almost impossible to paint the true colors of
Bluebonnets, Indian Blankets, Wine Cups, and Lantanas - or to convey the ambrosia of sweet laden air, birdsongs, and swirling silent
flight of a myriad of butterflies, moths, and skippers. Perhaps this is the true Gift that an Artist can give others by 'creating anew' such
beautiful moments long gone. As they enjoy the bottle of homemade Dandelion Wine, hopefully you will enjoy a glimpse of yesteryear.

|Motor Officer/Instructor Adam Carroll of the Pearland Police
Department, Pearland, Texas. It has been my good fortune to
Train under this highly skilled Motorman (and Co-Instructor Mark
Davis) at the spacious training site, New Hope Church in Manville,
Texas. In 2008 he endured 80 Hrs of intense training at famed
Notherwestern University in conjunction with Harley Davidson to
become a certified Operator of Police Motors. In 2010 Adam
completed an additional 120 Hrs at Northwestern U. to become a
Certified Police Motor Instructor. Adam was honored as the
Knights Of Columbus OFFICER OF THE YEAR in 2005, and
NIGHT SHIFT Officer O.T.Y. in 2006. In 2010 he competed in
the Space City Motorcycle Challenge (Police Motorcycle Rodeo)
and won 1st Place Novice in the Full Fairing Division. How good is
he? Well, he makes running the dreaded "Key Hole" pattern look as
easy as cruising down The Grand Parkway!

fittingly called "K.B." by her peers. Most Dads are rightfully
proud of their daughter, but this is an exceptional case of

|"Penelope", "Charlotte" beside twin sister "Daphne", and
little "Beatrice" (starting with the white cutie and going
clockwise) are the much loved pets of John & Veronica
Miller of Houston, Texas. The Live Photo Session was an event
to be remembered, as well as one I had sworn to never do again. The
finished painting in no way hints at the riotous CIRCUS performed
at the foot of those stairs with all 4 doggies barking, jumping down,
and running in circles as John lay on the floor trying to entice them
with treats. Finally, in desperation, he put leashes on them and then
tried to hold them in-place [2 at a time] while staying out of the
shot! Their alert gaze was produced by my high whistles - effective
only about twice. Over the hours the patio light source changed and
with every adjustment of my camera tripod we had to start over.
John and I took turns looking out the front window to make sure
Animal Control Officers had not been called to the scene by alarmed
neighbors. My job then, as Artist, was to compose the seemingly
placid untethered Quartet seen here. If everyone loved their pets
like John & Veronica - animal shelters would have to close down.
