Their Last Summer at the Lake
and then, she was gone and he was alone.
LAGNIAPPE Carroll is a "reasoning outsider," an intuitive social introvert, much like Zuckerberg, MJ, Aguilera, Ford, Buffett, and Einstein. His teacher served royalty, moguls, Hollywood stars, and superstar athletes. Initially, the tragic death of his sister drove his timeless artwork. Everyone has felt the pain of a loved one's death. Along the way, he invested four years learning wealth conservation and cultivation, to guide the top 1% strata, as an agent of an East Coast office of Northwestern Mutual ("My mentor was my parent's agent, the #1 salesman in the nation."). In 1984, he moved to the West to found a boutique marketing firm serving the wealthiest, from scratch. In 1994, he flew to Spain to study with artist Sr. Alcaraz. HRH Queen Victoria's favorite paintbrush was a Series 7. We read that the man who taught the monarch to paint also taught Vincent van Gogh. Top shelf Series 7s are Carroll's favorite because of the way they hold and release pigments (Above ↑↑↑. "up-downs!"). Many people have influenced Carroll's marathon event through recovery to well being.
ILLUMINATION Carroll's mom and dad (FMR Navy doctor) motivated him. Carroll represents their "Red Mountain" cares, concerns, and legacy. Each lived in forward gear despite their tests, trials ... and many blessings. "I respect the men and women who built this country. When I met with General Franks in Hobart, Oklahoma, he was quickly noted the sacrifice of families in the military community. I easily saw why the troops loved him so profoundly and was proud to have the Four-Star pen the foreword to the first edition of my Ode to Joy. He waived his world leader's fee solely to help me. GTF received the Presidential Medal of Freedom and was knighted by HRH The Queen of the United Kingdom and 15 other Commonwealth realms. When I asked him for an introduction to the President of the United States, General Franks' ADC said, "Good to Go" 15 minutes later. The general was a National Park Foundation Director with Mr. David Rockefeller. GTF directed me to Fisher House Foundation and another foundation."
A Nashville, TN Hall of Fame guitarist-singer-songwriter, Jimmy Jack Whitaker from Oklahoma, introduced GEN Franks to the artist. Ode to Joy shared the book shelf in the Leadership Institute and Museum gift shop with POTUS Bush, PM Thatcher, SECDEF Rumsfeld, Franks, and Powell. Carroll painted "He First Served as a Private" as a "Thank You." Earlier, Carroll attended another Four-Star's 50th wedding anniversary aboard RMS Queen Mary in a private black tie with 40 Medal of Honors and a lot of politically positioned scrambled eggs. Some present invited him to join a priory of the Knights of Malta.

The Artist's Mailbag
The King's Bling™
I retired into tranquil safety away from the bearish world's shenanigans.
A loving, nubile, early Gen Xer
caught me on the bounce.
"I was born in soft-spoken, tricorne Philadelphia and raised with 'Cowtown Rodeo' values.
We basseted with the Colonial settler family that designed and produced the Medal of Honor,
Silver Star, Bronze Star, Purple Heart, and class rings for West Point and Annanpolis ...
and nearly was betrothed in a blue blood Mayflower family that governed Plymouth Colony.
Then, I lived near the Chisholm Trail in Texas for 37 years; I enjoy living in the Red River-vicinity
where genuine horsemen and women still drag cattle to the fire --- and compete! I began driving
the big red, Farmall Super H on our family farm when I was a fifty-pound eight-year-old sapling.
I was named honoring our neighbor, the Last Living Signer of the Declaration of Independence.
I was a certified Science 4-8 teacher and have taught science classes and keynoted general assemblies
for middle schools, high schools, undergraduates, graduates, alumni, businesses, and associations.
I've never given an art lesson or workshop, nor will I ever. I publish and give away my art books.
NOTICE: "I decided when to hang up my spurs and retire.
You ought to make a copy of whatever you like on this web site. I've pre-paid and released it.
One day it won't be here."
My family thrived on healing strategies --- 'Service Above Self,' as fellow Paul Harris say."
I call painting doing
"YOU paid the full price. Thank you!!! I'm your living legacy."
Carroll is "The No Kitsch Artist" from a small rural town where being outbid in a global context didn't matter.
Put your skids down in my yard - by appointment.
The artist's dad was a WWII US Navy veteran. Dr. Burgoon was on LST-335 in the Third Tide on Dog Green on D-Day. Then, he deployed as Chief Medical Officer on APD-78 (DE-693), a destroyer escort converted into a fast transport carrying Underwater Demolition Team 14 in the Philippines, then, Iwo Jima and Okinawa. Dr. B thrived on authenticity, commanded perfection, and expected virtuosity. His battlefield-tested mentality held no patience with incompetence, indifference, indecision, mediocrity, fakes, frauds, forgers, "Lollygaggers!" liars, and thieves. Many scorned him. People who knew better sought him. His rapid string of career success and meteoric rise to global leadership were likely due to his fellow Freemasons.
After the war, he wed Jane Smiley. She'd earned her way through the university Phi Beta Kappa, and then medical school by typing research papers for fellow students. Virginia Jane (née Smiley) Burgoon, MD became a researcher with husband and wife Austrian virologists at Penn, was Board Certified in Pediatrics, and served Bill Nelson, MD as editor of Nelson's North American Pediatrics. She was a birder with a long global life list, a horse- and cat-lover, and a tennis buff, inspired by her doctor father who died from leukemia when she was ten-years-old, the year the Stock Market crashed, and the Dakota Dust Bowl raged. She was one bright, gifted, refined, Upper Midwest lady who "knew how to use a fork," yet enjoyed the great outdoors. She was very normal.
The artist grew up amidst wealthy influential, supporters, bankers, advisors, doctors and scientists, and top military brass. A RADM (Flag officer) taught Carroll to tie his shoes. He was coached by a wise, retired Army Major General Hugh G. Robinson, a West Point graduate and MIT Civil Engineer, director at Belo Corp, Public Television, and the African American Museum, and later, an advisor to the 44th president of the United States of America.
"The top two most rewarding things I have ever done were not watercolor paintings."
1) Supported a Boys and Girls Club of America as a member of the Board of Directors in Santa Fe, NM.
2) Helped refine U.S. National's winning high school Academic Decathlon student's and their speeches.
The artist grew up on Rebel Hill on Matsonford Road where General George Washington and his troops encamped for six days before they marched beneath Hanging Rock in Gulph Mills to overwinter in the icy farmlands of Valley Forge; where Carroll played in the park with his neighbors, grandchildren of former slaves. He crossed the road to Calvary Cemetery to practice speeding on his English bicycle. He is not submitted to one political party or another; he is in fact, a seventh generation American. His mother was a first generation American inspired by her dad who was a turn of the century Dakotan country doctor and civic leader, a pioneer from Rawdon, near Québec, Canada. His dad was the son of a Harrisburg banker and grew up along the Susquehanna, a well-known trading crossroad in Algonquin Territory and later, the birthplace of the Bethlehem Steel Company. Carroll's not your typical Yankee Doodle seeking fortune in the Bible Belt --- Carroll arrived in DFW aboard a sleek jetliner, not riding a farm buckboard, and became a very accomplished photographer and a Masterful artist with extraordinary scientific (viz, technical) detail and vision. He quit a Master's in Aquatic Entomology at Georgia, the same day he quit PhD studies in Ecology at UDEL, and later two MBAs (With the top grade in his classes; He was nationally recognized for sales volume when protecting your wealth, then, established a boutique firm that created literature that grew wealth for the wealthy). 5⭐'s Promote your hobby, yacht, and foundation!
SYNOPSIS (⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐)
Artist Carroll Burgoon was discovered and groomed by Spanish prodigy, Don Francisco Alcaraz, who took him underwing to release and refine his gift. Señor Alcaraz' esteemed distinguished patrons included, Le Louvre (1793), El Prado Museo (1819), Versailles (1682), the Met (1874), the Vatican, and the wealthiest capitalists and kings! Carroll's teacher was honored by the same galleries where the greatest Impressionists exhibited their paintings. Alcaraz did two-man exhibits with Picasso. A patron reported his "Carroll" shares a wall with original Picassos and Marc Chagall on a "Little ol' cow farm in Texas." Carroll is a bright, playful, humble artist who gave 500+ art talks and was featured in corporate news, regional televised, radio, and news. A sport painting had 10 million exposures. Favorite subjects: Flyfishing, pristine wilderness, biodiversity, ranching, waterfront living, hobbies, sports, and philanthropy.
Carroll's 7th-Grade Art teacher, Kathie Dugas, at General Wayne taught Carroll to draw well ("Women always notice my hands"). Every great painter FIRST MASTERED THE ART BASICS: Drawing, color, and composition --- without computer rendering. Carroll has done many environmental portraits, zoologicals, botanicals, architecturals, and he is still like a boy turning over rocks in a woodland stream — with three storytelling "Emmy's" in his back pocket.
"I began as a freshwater scientist. I became a watercolor artist.
Science taught me to look and see. Advertising taught me to stimulate demand, and tourism.
Painting and photography taught me to do what Hollywood does best."
Carroll began collecting "Bugs" at five, the year, he matriculated with the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia (ANSP) Junior Curator's Program for budding young scientists. When the family moved to the healing waters of historic Chester Springs, his curiosity broadened to the aquatic insects of Pigeon Run coursing pastures and woods, from granitic spring seeps. He loved visiting JJ Audubon's Mill Grove above the Perkiomen Creek where he formulated his blending of art and science as a child. Carroll is an eclectic freshwater scientist that turned into an artist and who assembles "art puzzles" with an unknown number of pieces of indeterminate sizes for fun. It's why most people enjoy both domestic and international adventure --- and some even go to the moon! His first patron married a HoF rodeo cowboy. She was an oil & gas heiress. Back to science: When he left UGA grad studies he accepted a position at ANSP as Principal Investigator for two Washington, DC companies, plus Scott, P&G, and BP; Carroll replaced TWO men who went to an Ivy League dental school.
