"Nature must be experienced through feeling

[in situ - As Carroll did in Spain]."

Alexander von Humboldt, (1769-1859), the world's first environmentalist. A portrait was painted

of Humboldt in his library by an acuarelist (watercolorist) in 1856. His passion for knowledge,

harmony, balance, and beauty took him to the Spanish colonies in Central and South America.

IMAGINE Hummingbirds are fabulous national travel docents!

ENJOY waterfalls, mountains, both coasts, the central valley,

adventure, culture, ... OLD-MONEY HOBBIES. Hummingbirds

show them key destinations. Travel is a sustainable lifestyle -

Your (key) supporters can be in paintings. 

The King's Bling

"At the S.M. King of Spain's royal direction,

his Secretary General told me in this letter

S.M. El Rey liked my paintings of España."


Carroll had some missing pieces of the family

puzzle to find before he settled down.





"You've got one chance to tell your story and it dries in minutes. You can't be afraid of color. The King's Bling™ is a

supplement to your tourism campaign. Jump now, before someone scoops you."  Carroll Burgoon, PR strategist


                    The Blue Pocketknife "I once was a freshwater (Mayfly/Caddisfly) aquatic entomologist. Eventually, an aristocratic Brazilian lady arranged my studies with

                     her friend Señor Alcaraz. A schoolteacher wanted me to be an author and a Marine brigadier general wanted me to paint - My guidance counselor said join the

                     ArmyI left a Georgia Master's in Entomology and a Delaware doctoral candidacy in Ecology on the same day, and two MBAs in Texas. I slept on my art studio

meant to her, where it's been, and that it's staying in her family. It's an heirloom!!! A mirthful pro golf tour champion's

​​​The Spirit Behind The King's Bling

"A man that hath travelled knoweth many things; and he that hath much experience will declare

wisdom. He that hath no experience knoweth little: but he that hath travelled is full of prudence.

When I travelled, I saw many things; and I understand more than I can express."  Sira

​​​ART SLIDESHOW Carroll began collecting "Bugs" as a five y/o, when he joined ​the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia (ANSP) Junior Curator's Program for budding young scientists. The family moved to historic Chester County and Carroll's collection broadened to the aquatic insects of Pigeon Run coursing pastures and woods from granitic spring seeps. He loved ​JJ Audubon's Mill Grove above Perkiomen Creek where he formulated being an artist when he grew up. His paintings are on the finest canvas, made since 1492, using pigments used by the masters. Carroll creates singles, series, ​diptychs, and triptychs.

1. Love is not a straight line.

 ​​​"I erroneously blamed myself for my sister's death.  

My life was stoked with superstitions, passion,

XO     greed, shame, foolishness, lust, self-sabotage,       

XO   the warped line of fear, impatience, covetousness,        

 XO    pride, I feared being like van Gogh, treasured, had            

 XO    a 2x dose of immaturity, and felt 101.1% unworthy.           

XO   I stopped competing and put on excess weight.          

 My self-hatred was stripping away success.   

It was my cocktail for spiritual parasitism.

I was blind to color and did not know it.

Humorist Mark Twain equated learning

with trying to carry a cat by the tail.

I checked my ego at the door & YES, I aim for excellence.

YES, my path zigzags & YES, my lamp is burning."
