Grandchildren often got to pump the gas for a customer. The farm dog always barked to let Grandpa know someone was coming. There was a ramp where mechanics of all skill levels could decide what the car needed.

SOLD: "Gulls Play Musical Chairs, Too",  watercolor on paper, unframed, $65, 9" x 12". Anyone who's visited the Gulf Coast has seen gulls moving in to take over a post. Those in the lowest pecking order have to fly off their post and find another spot. Someone's always getting "bumped."

"Low Water on the Buffalo River," watercolor on paper, unframed, $25, 5" x 7". Sometimes it happens, especially in the Upper Buffalo: the river's too low to float. Wait a while; it'll fill up again and give you a scenic and memorable time.  SOLD

COMMISSIONED: Mural, 14' by 8', for Lone Chimney Taxidermy (that's me standing there in the doorway...the mural is above the wainscoting.) Interestingly, this is the only painting I've ever done that was burned and then bulldozed. The business closed, the building sold, and since I had painted it directly on the wall, it couldn't be removed when the building was demolished to make room for a new business. So this painting exists only in memories.
