Troublesome Creek



The Fugates, a family that lived in the hills of Kentucky, commonly known as the Blue Fugates of Troublesome Creek, were notable for having been carriers of a genetic trait that led to the disease methemoglobinemia, which gives sufferers blue-tinged skin.

This is Troublesome Creek,  my painting inspired by that story.

Harold Agnew and the Plutonium Core

Original 8" x 10' acrylic painting on thick, acid-free paper.

Harold Agnew was an American physicist who flew as a scientific observer on the Hiroshima bombing mission. This painting was modeled after a photo of Agnew from 1945 on the Mariana Islands. He is standing in front of a quonset hut and holding the plutonium core for the Fat Man bomb that would be dropped on Nagasaki.
