"My tax advisor politely reminded me that my 'art business' was merely a hobby.

I'm just a marketing guy who travels, collects adventures,

and tells some entertaining stories at the dinner table.

A professional lady bought my 'YES!!!' drawing in the '80's - she wrote me after tracking me down to tell me what the artwork
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
wife called me at 6:15 one morning to tell me that at that moment she was watching her husband rearrange their furniture
around her surprise gift - the IT whiz kid's bride, the booze king's bride, a Big Pharma heiress, ... a banking VP's home,

 a Dallas philanthropy consultant, the past international president of Toastmasters International - all women, each a real leader.

I can do what I do because of: Sgt William H. Carney, 1LT Audie Murphy, Col Roger Donlon, all MOHs, SEALS, Rangers,

veterans, Gold Star families, husbands, wives, mothers, fathers, siblings, children, some orphaned and some widowed.

Furthermore, I'm grateful to every active duty military, my dear friends, clientele, and my supporters. Thank you!

​​☆☆☆   ​​The Paintbrush Poet  (Carroll F. Burgoon, III)  ☆☆☆

"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."  Sirach

​​​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 colors used by the masters. Carroll creates singles, series, ​diptychs, and triptychs. One woman owns 40 original contemporary Carroll's, plus several of his "ENVIRO PORTRAITS."    NAV BAR "2"


1. Love is 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 crooked 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 30-40 pounds.          

 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."

                    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

                     floor, in my car, on patrons' sofas, my electricity and water were turned off, I celebrated Thanksgiving in a homeless shelter."    NAV BAR "4"

"I grew up handwriting notes to people. That hasn't changed because I have always done such and it's fun. You crawl before you walk and walk before you

play in the paint. Know, there are no shortcuts. Sr. Alcaraz taught me to take

what was pretty and make it beautiful, with timeless mastery & the old money whisper of a paintbrush. I don't mention that I do LEAP action portraits."​

"A Navy flag officer taught me how to throw two half-hitches."
