PaintJam's first symphony show was in Azerbaijan at the fabulous Heydar Aliyev Center. Dan Dunn painted an iconic 1950’s local movie star that was instantly recognized by the locals.

We loved performing with the symphony in this insanely beautiful hall.

This led to us developing shows for the Houston Symphony at Jones Hall and the National Symphony at the Kennedy Center. Also the Wichita Symphony.

PaintJam was so excited for winter we decided to head up to the great white north!

Here we are in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. Behind us is The Big Nickel. Erected in 1951.

The nickel mines here were from an impact crater from the proterozoic era. In the 60’s the pollution from the mines created acid rain which killed everything in the area and left the place looking like the surface of the moon. The gray slate rocks are black to this day because of it.

In 1985 major efforts were implemented.

They planted 3,000,000 trees and scrubbers on the smelting furnaces. It’s an environmental triumph.

Our second time to play here.
It’s going to be a great show tonight!

In my younger days I attempted being a musician.

I gave that idea up when I turned 30 with kids and a busy life.

Rehearsals with my band and no income being produced but we sure had fun for 10 years!

Now I’m loving adding music back into my goals and dreams.

As an art director I knew several photographers. He had the Harley in his studio as a prop. Too much water under the bridge.

This guitar is still my favorite. 1978 Alvarez Fox Hollow. Maple. A dreadnaught blonde made in Japan. She still plays and sounds great.

I wrote a song about buying it as a 19 year old kid.

I played every guitar in my price range at Evans music city and this was at the top of my budget which meant cash in my pocket in those days. It beat all the others hands down for the money.

Sure there were Martin’s and stuff. Way out of my reach.

$500 was a lot of money back then and they threw in a case.

Astroworld caricature artist summer job money. Earned by the sweat of my brow.

The caricatures were $2.05 and I got 25% so $.50 was my pay. So this was 1,000 caricatures.

I remember making $1,600 in July that year so that would have been 2,300 caricatures. I worked doubles after going home after an 8 hour shift and being bored. Far more interesting to stay at work laughing with guests and other artists and making money.

The boss was always short an artist or two. And I got the good shifts because I could crank.

There’s no substitute for putting in the 10,000 hours. I drew for three seasons before I felt I was good enough to work private parties. Once I got a taste of that it was hard to work retail.

One friend Jeff Martin went on to write comedy for Letterman and the Simpsons and produce Boy Meets World.

Another, Bill Hughes created illustration art for a Star Wars book of all the creatures from the films.

One of my students Craig Staggs won an Oscar for “the tower” with his animation studio Minnow Mountain in Austin.

Another, Mike Jenkins became a political cartoonist.

Working with these talented artists was the best.

This was probably a key element in my tendency to be a workaholic.

It ain’t work if you love it.

39 years with this sweet lady!

Mother of 5. The love of my life and the secret of my success. I couldn’t ask for a better lover, business partner or mother to my children.

She runs PaintJam and is the unseen star of the show.

Sorry for posting so many photos, but when one has been to 29 countries one collects a huge camera dump. This was only a few.
