Larry passed away in California under his nom de plume, Nick West.

I remember Clay - he pulled my hair in geometry class one day, and I apologise for hitting him back. Sorry, Clay... and for the trouble we got into. Thanks for the tribute, James. Our hearts and our fond memories are where our friends carry on.

I have found that the 'getting to know you' part of this later and now has been more fun than our high school years. Now our experiences have softened the differences and warmed the similarities in our lives. Come to a reunion and let us get to meet you again.

Phil was perhaps the most enthusiastic supporter of a recent art project I had undertaken. In dedicating the work to Phil Mattalino's memory, I am sure Phil would want to encourage more people to dream big and go for their goals. It is a great sadness to me that Phil did not see the project finished. HIs encouragement throughout the planning process was a real boost daily and weekly. His passing is a tremendous loss. I miss his cheerful, positive comments. ...cannot thank him enough...

This is the outfit Son Kimball designed and Mom Candace made for his Senior Prom...2005. The man wearing it has just graduated February 2008 from Collins College with a fabulous GPA and a degree in Game Design. He is already working in the gaming industry, but would love to be in a more creative capacity. HIRE HIM!

Here is the back of the 2005 Prom outfit. These were taken after Kimball's 2008 Collins College graduation while Mom Candace was in AZ for the event.

We usually have the Llamas in the Parades for Christmas. In spite of the beautiful day pictured here, there was a 400 lb. cake of ice on the trailer that usually appears in the parades and carries the llamas...but undaunted, we went without them.('07)

Magical Flag is Kimball's llama. They use the same hair dresser. In this picture 'Flag has just been sheared for the summer. He is alot fluffier in the Christmas parades.

Sir Charle is our lead Llama. He looks foreward to the parades where he usually pulls the llama cart and this week he is pacing around expecting to be loaded into the trailer so he can participate in this year's Christmas parades. (12-1-08)

2013 was a surprise. Through United States Artists Projects money was donated from friends and family to mount this mural on the exterior wall of our studio. As of this writing, materials are being collected and the project is well under way.
