What a beautiful family, Dan! The dog and cat, too. I was Googling for Payne Hollow and ran across the regional art connection. My father was an artist. He studied with Thomas Hart Benton in Kansas City in the day. Dad is long gone. He and my mother split in 1957, when I was your son's age. He was an alcoholic, a horse player, a sign painter and cartoonist, a bass voice, a racconteur, and an eccentric. He flew a sub-chasing bomber in WWII for the Navy and taught flying at Pensacola at the beginning of the war. My warrior tendencies are undoubtedly intertwined with this character.
