That day I received a call to illustrate training manuals for the Navy and I’ve pursued every art opportunity since. In 1987 I began sculpting and I have hundreds of pieces all across the country. The granite illustrations on the Memorials page likewise number in the hundreds from Idaho and Texas to eastern Pennsylvania. The large foam sculptures were carved in a field in northern Kentucky, the 25’ x 50’ jaguar completed in 5 days. I began painting watercolors when I received a commission to paint a calendar and I’ve taught this difficult medium and have given public demonstrations. The drawings on this website which are the basis of my paintings were randomly picked from the hundreds I have in my sketchbooks that I started with my bicycle and beach chair those many years ago in California. The treasurer of a municipality for which I completed a project told me that I was the only contractor involved who was on budget and on time. For me, art is a business and when I’m commissioned I do my home work and follow the rules put down by Van Gogh - go your own way, do your best, and make it live. Let’s get to work.”                                                                                          Gary Carson Statue dedicated November 11, 2013 Blue Ash, Ohio
