A year or two later Amalie met Donald Meyer, the two fell in love, married in 1970, and Amalie became Amalie Meyer. Early on, the Meyer’s had flown east from California to New York to visit with some of Amalie’s relatives, and then they drove to Connecticut to visit the Hulings. It turned out that Clark had received a commission to do an oil painting of the Grand Canyon, and that gave quite a boost to his career.
Clark’s work is realistic, and while I am obviously biased, and believe his work to be absolutely top notch, I am not alone. His web URL is http://www.clarkhulings.com/index.htm, and of course you are free to visit the site on your own, but I received permission to post photos of some of his paintings on my blog. So I hope you enjoy these!

Clark does love to paint the ever patient burro.
including this one.
If I remember correctly, he named this "lonely man"
This is "The Pink Parasol". I have a print of this hanging over my bed. Clark often manages to get a bit of red into his paintings.
What more can I say?
And this one is "Onteniente". If I'm reading the Spanish correctly in Google, it is a city in Valencia, Spain. I first saw this in their home in Connecticut, and when the front door was opened, light simply flooded the painting. It was gorgeous. They now live in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
And you want humor, too? Okay.
