Melinda

Thanks to the kindness a fan of Rosamond has shown me, the focus of my biography will go in a new and more positive direction.

Christine Rosamond’s Tutor

garycmelinda333I have given so much of my novel ‘Capturing Beauty’ away for free. I did this so I would not be guilty of exploiting my beloved sister, employing her as a prostitute, as many who claim they love her, have.

If anyone mentioned in my blogs, feels I have done them an injustice, or damaged their reputation, let me know and we will discuss it. I am willing to edit. Writing is a subscribed therapy for me and vital to my recovery. My readers have witnessed my struggle with my demons, and other people’s demons, a process that was vital at arriving at the truth.

Two days ago, my memory was jarred when I wrote about Melinda Frank and her father. I made a picture of Melinda’s mother – whose name escapes me! All of a sudden I am Glendon Avenue beholding these works of art Christine had done at Melinda’s house. Melinda’s mother was a Sunday Painter and had a studio which I saw. When she met Christine, and heard her brother was n artist, this mother bid Christine to work in her studio alongside her. Melinda’s mother was acting as a mentor, with the clear idea she might find some hidden talent in this sibling. Melinda’s mother told me she had encouraged my sister, Christine, after I became her daughter’s boyfriend. Melinda Frank became a Rosamond print, or, one of Christine’s subjects.

The incredible drama that occurred after Melinda and I cut school to make love, is history that readers and collectors are interested in, because it is a classic case of an Artist’s Struggle – two artists in this case!

I am going to ask my attorney to ask Stacey Pierrot to remove her lies and slander, and get that fraudulent teacher that Jullie Lynche conjured out of thin air – out of my families history.

Though I do not own a picture of Christine showing her paintings to her mother, there is a good chance this happened, because – this is real! This is what a billion children all over the world – are about. If they did something wonderful, the first person they want to share this with – is their mother! Surely Melinda’s mother saw merit in Christine’s first artwork and said”

“Take these home and show them to your mother!”

If Christine was a closeted artist, and afraid to show her artwork to any family member, then here was her chance to confide in an adult who was on her side. Everyone who knew us – had no doubt I was on Christine’s side, and she on mine.

The days of using my beloved sister, like a whore, is numbered!

When I first met Melinda’s mother, it was love at first sight. She had heard about me, and here I was.

“Oh. He looks just like a young Gary Cooper. Don’t you think so, Don? Would you like some cookies and milk?”

When Don saw his beautiful wife, fawn all over me, any idea I had to die – was gone with the wind! Don loved this woman, this artist – dearly!

Christine was horrified when she picked up the phone and heard;

“Your son is a dead man if he does not get my daughter back home.”

Don ended up liking me because I was a stand-up kinda guy. He offered me a job as manager of one of his kindred’s Adult Movie theatres. I was seventeen.

“That’s my mom in the purple mask!”
“Good looken woman.”

Ya’all got till high noon October 24th. to get this bullshit off the web.

THE BEGINNING: Oakland, California

If Christine’s parents had embraced her talent, there might be existing works from her childhood, but this was not to be. Fearing that Christine would steal her brother’s spotlight as the family artist, Christine’s mother, Rosemary, forbade Christine to draw at home. The only time she could express herself was at school or in her closet, by flashlight, when everyone else was asleep. Though we don’t have images to prove it, Christine’s kindergarten teacher has said that, by age five, Christine was already drawing with adult skill. She can remember Christine’s pictures of animals having near perfect detail and perspective.

In addition to oppressing Christine artistically, Rosemary also dominated Christine with physical violence. Trying to support four children with only a high school education and little help from her alcoholic husband, Rosemary was often enraged. She took this rage out on Christine and Christine’s earliest known works reflect it. In Teenage Drawing II, her subject is reticent and withdrawn. In Teenage Drawing III, the woman looks shocked and angry

Christine Rosamond Kindergarten Work

rosa0003 rosa0004I found the lost kindergarten artwork of the world famous artist, Christine Rosamond Benton that Julie Lynch claims my sister’s kindergarten teacher told her about. As you can see it is not capable of rendering ” pictures of animals having near perfect detail and perspective.” She is a ordinary child.

This is a card to Rosamond’s mother, Rosemary, thus, Christine drew a rose. She got this rose right in a literary sense, it being under the name “Mother”.
