In 1983, Evelyn and I moved to Georgia from California. While exhibiting at several art festivals in our new environment, I had a request for a painting of a covered bridge in Bartow County, GA. On our way to the bridge, we passed through Cartersville and saw, what looked like a permanent carnival, with a Ferris Wheel, Merry-Go-Round, a ride with swings and a refreshment stand.
Several weeks later, I stopped and took some photos. One of the paintings was of the trolley, with the Ferris Wheel. The man who owned the rides, was names Tilley, so it became Tilley Park, where he offered the park to organizations to use for fund-raising.
We ended up buying a home in that little town, where we lived for several years. The cameras back then were not as sharp, so I only was able to show this one photo of the painting. The Tilley family now owns two of the paintings that I did of their park, which is no longer there. Here is a link to the other painting. Tilley Park Painting.
