|Mr. Jack Huddle, of Airmont Distributing Co. Inc. in Cypress/Houston, Texas
http://airmontdistributing.com/pro/ Known far and wide by Goldwing Motorcycle owners, and now drawing in
Harley Davidson owners as well, "Buck" provides high quality upgrades to even the newest bike. Not pricy
'gadgets' but only top notch improvements and devices to enhance both safety and pleasure. He is a New
Board Sponsor of the popular GL1800 Goldwing Forum http://www.goldwingowners.com/forums/index.php
Goldwing Owners from as far away as Canada have ridden down here to have Buck do his magic! Buck
keeps his schedules, works tirelessly, and settles for nothing short of perfection. If you don't know this man -
you have NO IDEA what can be done to enhance your motor riding experience, extend the Service Life of
your expensive Engine, and increase your odds of keeping the shiny side up.
|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 and fine-tip 'da vinci' NOVA Synthetics brushes.
|This setting is circa 1910 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. 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 his
Co-Instructor Mark Davis) at their spacious training site, New
Hope Church in Manville, Texas. In 2008 he endured 80 Hrs
of intense training at famed Nothrwestern 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!
