Art & Antiques
Image is of our oil/egg tempera painting, from Henryk Fantazos', Southern Series as featured in numerous magazines and documentaries titled, "Dixie Fiddle." We also own "Beekeeper's Dance." We have a lot of art, sculpture and fine art prints including some signed by Jerry Lee Lewis.
Strange and wonderful things we picked up in trade for gems/jewels. Also, items gifted and accumulated during my wife's life as the daughter of legendary, Jerry Lee Lewis of SUN records fame. My wife was his most prolific manager bringing in his best financial decade of his career and co-producing two albums, 'Mean Old Man,' and 'Last Man Standing,' featuring among others Cheryl Crow, Mick Jagger, Ronnie Woods, Kid Rock, Kris Kristofferson, etc. etc.
I am the cousin of Country singer George Jones. My life as an animal rescuer for the animals of domestic-violence victims in the Appalachians and saving black bears in America and Asian Moon Bears was funded primarily by music festivals. I worked in Armadillo World Headquarters (Austin) SUM Concerts (Houston) and Cardi's (Houston) and was Publisher/Owner of Twisted South Magazine. These now historic blues, rock & roll promotion companies and clubs worked with artists like Coco Taylor, Lightning Hopkins, Junior Kimbrough, R.L. Burnside, Muddy Waters, Stevie Ray Vaughn (and Jimmy,) to name but a few.
My wife has circled the planet more times than most astronauts and brought back unique gifts and purchases she made and we both collected a lot of music memorabilia. I have collected art, gems and antiquities for decades.
Our French Second Empire offices are bulging with art and antiques and our storage rooms (and one bedroom) are slammed full, floor to ceiling. Take a look! We are liquidating what equates to a small museum.
