Educational Writings-Discourse, Part XXIV: the Life and Times of Beverly Carrick—World-Famous Artist, Part Three!” by Moses Scharbug III

 

 

Bakersfield, CA, 12-24-2012 M:  The past two days, we have looked at the life and times of Beverly Carrick, the famous artist, one well known around the world.  She had a wonderful childhood according to her, the only downside being the brush with death and the loss of a leg due to bone cancer.  Her parents loved her and her brother, Eugene, did their best to instill in them the values so prevalent in the America of old: honesty, gratitude, honor, and a strong work ethic, something that would guide them both throughout their lives.  Beverly carried her parents’ instruction into her marriage and even though she had no idea as to how, one dealt with a man like Harry Hall Carrick, she raised and protected her two sons the best she could. 
Beverly Carrick and her two boys, Patrick and Brian.
 

          During the mid-1960s, Beverly worked hard at learning the art of painting.  She found noted California artist, Vernon Kerr, living in Laguna Beach, and he had a cadre of students.  Beverly signed up to learn the art of truly painting the ocean, learning the ways of producing the translucence that would make her famous.  Vernon was born in 1938 and passed away in 1982 and you can visit his Website at: <http://www.vernonkerr.com/vkbio.html>, he was great but never as great as his student would eventually be.  Yet,  he trained Beverly in the ways of the Pacific Ocean, how it remained the master of all it surveyed and only permitted the initiated the ability to paint.  Laguna Beach, California, is and was an amazing city and every week, Beverly drove the thirty miles or so from Whittier and spent her hard-earned money taking lessons from this amazing man. 
Patrick and Brian Carrick around 1958.

Over time, her skills improved dramatically that Maury and Violet, her agents living and working in downtown Los Angeles, took note.  They did their best to keep their artist pacified, threw her the bones that the male artists would never accept and yet she turned them from ivory to gold through her ability.  Finally, her two agents had to admit that she was up-and-coming and that they would be wise to latch on to this rising star and began to help her, putting her into contact with the movers and shakers of the West Coast art world. 
Harry Hall Carrick and son, Brian 1958.
 

Harry also took note and made more effort at controlling both her life and her money but Beverly managed to set money aside, always astute at managing her meager funds and promoting herself.  The house on Janine Drive proved to be not quite large enough to hold her studio and so she and Harry had an addition added to their home.  One room became a formal dining room off the living room while the other became her studio.  There, she worked diligently, day after day, while attending to her husband and her kids by night. 
Patrick and Brian Carrick 1957.



Harry was drinking more and problems seemed to be ongoing almost all of the time.  One night, her husband did what he did best: sulked out in the backyard smoking Marlboro cigarettes on Brian’s swing set holding the family’s cat in his lap.  He used to sit out there after dinner holding the cat and smoking, thinking of new and different ways in which to cause mayhem and problems within the family structure.  One of his favorite pastimes while he silently sat on the swings was to hold Kitty and force his fingers between the toes of her paws until she reacted by growling and eventually biting him.  He would then slap the poor one-eyed Persian cat and throw her away from him.  His youngest son witnessed this several times, was traumatized by his father’s maltreatment of the beloved family cat, and would run to his mother crying.   She would then come out and ask him why he did that and lo and behold, the battle began. 
Beverly Carrick and Brian 1957.
 

Harry would come inside raging and yelling and would stand no more than a finger away from his wife’s face, bugging out his eyes like a Hollywood movie monster, accusing her of finding ways to agitate him either through her actions or her kid’s.  Patrick was in high school during this time and was away from home a great deal of the time as he found solace in his friends and in performing in the theatrical productions of La Habra High School or playing catcher on the baseball team.  He had the ability to vacate the house as much as possible while his younger sibling and his mother dealt with his lunatic father.  One night it was so bad that Brian inadvertently locked his father outside and he then threw his wife’s kerosene bucket at the sliding glass door, cracking it, and causing widespread fear throughout the family.  The fight would last for a week or more and then, it would blow over for a week or so and the family would go back to “normal.”
Beverly and Brian Carrick 1958 with Beverly's Grandmother, Granny.
 

Both Brian and Patrick had many friends and did their best at living double lives.  Patrick had a girlfriend, Trisha, and her father was the drama teacher at the high school.  They practically took him into their family and he spent many hours away from home.  Brian on the other hand had numerous friends at Macy School and went to their houses much of the time.  The grade-schoolers spent a great deal of time riding bicycles to one another’s houses or playing war after school at any one of their homes or on the school grounds.  Brian began exhibiting problems in class by being an inveterate talker, earning him a great deal of extra hours after school but no matter how much his parents spoke to him or tried to help him (mostly his mother), he remained an independent talker, doodler, and problem child.  Still, the army of friends kept him occupied and many times while sitting in the principal’s office, he had the company of one or more of his friends, primarily Jon Gothold or Kurt Jensen, his two closest friends. 
Harry and Beverly Carrick and Clarence and Florence Jamison, Beverly’s Parents.
 

Whenever he went to their homes, he noted the fact that things seemed to be “different” there, as the parents of his two best friends never seemed to be at one another’s throats the way his own mother and father were at home.  He envied them, wished he could be more like them and their families and managed to spend as much time away from the insanity that went on 24/7 within the confines of their house.  Both brothers longed for normalcy but it never seemed to present itself and so life drug slowly on.
Clarence Jamison, Patrick Carrick, and Eugene Jamison, Oildale Home, 1958.
 

Then one day in 1966, bad news appeared as the family sat down to dinner one evening.  Mobil Oil gave Harry a promotion, making him the superintendant of operations in Bakersfield, CA, where the kids’ and Beverly’s grandparents/parents lived and a place not unknown to them.  Patrick was elated, as he had been accepted to the University of Southern California on a full scholarship while Brian was devastated at the potential loss of his friends.  He would be in fifth grade in the fall and would not have a chance to finish his grade schooling at Macy as the family would move in the summer of 1967 and he would have to go to a different school in a different place.  Patrick, on the other hand, would finish his high schooling at La Habra High School and then would have a chance to be with his girlfriend, Trisha on campus.  They planned on getting married in the summer of ’67 prior to leaving for school and would live in the married students’ dorm on campus.  Brian would be in limbo and it struck him horribly, he began having major emotional issues. 
Eugene and Elaine Jamison late 1950s.
 

Over the course of the winter of 1966-1967, he began having night fears and feared that intruders would enter the home, murdering his mother and kidnapping him.  The darkness terrified him suddenly and of course, Harry, took full advantage of that fact, lurking around outside at night doing what he did best: sitting on the swings with Kitty in his lap, smoking cigarettes and drinking booze.   The family continued on in its difficult ways and no one other than Harry was truly happy. 
Brian Carrick outside at the infamous swing set, Whittier, CA 1957.
 

During this time, Beverly met another well-known artist, Leon Franks, also of Southern California and he helped her with her still life paintings.  She was branching out from what originally began painting, the sea, and added still life to her growing set of capabilities.  Both Franks and Kerr excelled at what they did and many hours of hard work and precious money spent enabled her to increase her earning potential.  Harry, never impressed, only looked at the bottom line, looked at what he could latch onto and what he could readjust her monetary requirements.  He was happy that he did not have to spend a single dime to put his eldest son through school and in a moment of humanity and fatherhood, he and his wife purchased an MG Midget for Patrick as a graduation gift. 
Kitty Carrick, the family cat.
 

Patrick fell in love with the car and he and his fiancée, Trisha, delighted in driving it around town.  His younger brother proclaimed it to be a “lemon” one day because of some minor issue and in so doing, seemed to have put a hex on the bright red British car.  The car then went in and out of the shop and it was never right but Patrick held onto it anyway.  During this same time, Harry bought a new 1967 Mustang and gave his wife his 1964 Pontiac Bonneville Brougham.  Everyone seemed somewhat happy about the future except for Brian, faced with losing his friend network, the network that had sustained him from the time he could remember, and soon, he found himself going to a child psychiatrist in the months prior to moving to Bakersfield. 
Eugene Jamison and first son, Christopher.
 

Unfortunately, Patrick had to go to Los Angeles for his draft physical as the war in Vietnam was growing exceptionally fast and more and more manpower was being called up.  He was terrified and headed south with some of his high school chums and underwent the difficult induction process.  Fortunately, for him, he was declared 4-F because of his asthma and also his eyesight and was rejected and sent home.  He was grateful and happy that Uncle Sam didn’t want him but his father never let him live it down.  He chided his son for not being draft-worthy but failed to tell him that he, too, managed to beat going to war during World War II because he worked for an essential industry: the petroleum and oil industry.  Yet, Harry always sought new and different ways in which, he could torment his family and worked doubly hard on Patrick because soon, he would no longer be living in the home—he was getting out to go to college!
Florence “Grandma” Jamison, Beverly’s Mother.
 

Tomorrow, we shall continue with this story of Beverly Carrick and her family, something I hope all of you are enjoying, as it is a dramatic tale of someone who braved the dangers of living with a morally challenged man, someone who modern psychiatry would proclaim to be bi-polar.  At the time, Harry went to psychiatrists in their area and then would come home and tell his wife “Doctor Butler said this and that and that you had to be a better wife.”  He used every trick he could muster to keep his wife off-balance and in her place but it would last only so long.  We shall pick up tomorrow with the continuing story, I hope you are enjoying it, please leave us comments!    
Brian Carrick, around 1958.
