1931-1986 DC / Georgetown Artist: Carol Stuart Watson

By | Local NewsWIRE | No Comments

Carol Stuart Watson
August 14, 1931 – January 19, 1986
A Washington DC, Georgetown, Bethesda, Frederick, Annapolis, Alexandria
Fine Artist, Illustrator, Muralist, and Photographer

Carol was born at Georgetown Hospital in Washington DC on August 14, 1931. She was the first of seven children born to Dr. Leander Scales Stuart and Henrietta Christine Kreh Stuart. The family resided in Bethesda at that time and for many years afterward.

Carol attended Bethesda and Lynbrook Elementary Schools, Leland Junior High School, and Bethesda Chevy Chase High School. She was among the first students to attend and graduate from Montgomery Junior College, and then went on to the University of Maryland where she earned her fine arts degree in 1953 (a classmate and contemporary of Muppeteer Jim Henson).

After college she joined the staff of the Times-Herald newspaper in Washington DC. In 1954 she co-founded Georgetown’s community paper, The Georgetowner. In 1960 Carol founded Carriage Trade Publications in Georgetown with her husband David. Mrs. Watson’s illustrated historical scenes of Washington, DC, Georgetown, Alexandria, Annapolis, and Frederick, Maryland; …which were printed and widely circulated on postcards, calendars as well as prints for framing.

In 1976 she was commissioned to illustrate the official Bicentennial Map of Montgomery County; …a very large, handsome and colorful print; …a big undertaking as it depicts the many important homes and historical sites including a brief written description of each. These still hang on the walls of many government and business offices, and private homes throughout Maryland and beyond.

A commissioned slide-show of many animated water-color paintings depicting the rich history of Harper’s Ferry, WV was exhibited daily at the National Park Visitors Center there. Other ‘Federal’ projects included a large mural at the United States Chamber of Commerce depicting the “Romance of Lafayette Square.” She had even more fun making posters, coloring books, maps, calendars, and drawings; … even Panda Bear Mugs for the Friends of the National Zoo. There she delighted in making friends with both the animals and their care-takers. Carol especially loved cats – small and large!

Her work in television included courtroom drawings for the major networks of Maryland Governor Marvin Mandel’s Mail Fraud and Racketeering trial and the “Black Mafia” Hanafi trial.

A popular illustrator of children’s books, her pictures are found in publications such as “Where’s Rachel,” “Hurrah for Arthur” “Flower Fables,” “Hey, ey-ey-Lock – Adventures on the C&O Canal,” “Upstairs and Downstairs in a Victorian Doll House,” and many more.

In the years preceding her death at 54 years, Carol was employed by Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory where she worked as a graphic illustrator for the Fleet Systems. As a side line she enjoyed designing Christmas Cards which were sold nationwide; …these designs appeared on notebooks, and wrapping paper and Christmas ornaments as well. In 1982 she won the Graphic Arts Award Competition sponsored by the Printing Industries of America for her design of Bear Branches Gift Wrap.

Carol was a natural and competitive cook; … of the Julia Child ilk. Every Sunday her kitchen was busy with the sights, sound, and smells of a royal feast for anyone who gathered through her open door for dinner. She illustrated many cookbooks, as well as dozens of local restaurant menus; … even won a contest for a mouth-watering Maryland Crab dish!

An accomplished and imaginative muralist, one of her major works is ‘Colonial Georgetown’ at Lockheed Headquarters (then Martin Marietta) in Bethesda. She did numerous murals for nurseries and dining rooms and other touches of interior design in many homes.

Carol did countless numbers of fine art paintings, drawings, greeting cards; …portraits; …furniture decorations, sculptures; …her creativity and productivity was staggering. She loved to do quick sketches of something that caught her attention and would combine them with her quick wit to the amusement of whoever was lucky enough to receive them.

Active in volunteer work, Mrs. Watson was involved with the Salvation Army, the Junior League of Washington DC, The Travelers Aid Society and The United Way among others.

A prolific artist, and a superb photographer; … Carol Stuart Watson just appreciated beauty in everything; … music, flowers, nature, family. Plants loved her too, if she wasn’t in the kitchen or studio you would find her tending her extensive rock gardens.

Her view of the world was as sensitive as any lens in a camera; …she missed very little; …lived very large; …and inspired many to great ambition; …’who could ask for anything more?’

Statute of Limitations for Professional Malpractice Extended from Four Years to Six Years

Statute of Limitations for Professional Malpractice
Extended from Four Years to Six Years

http://www.bouhan.com/attorney/gregory_sewell.html

Bear witness to a seminal change in Georgia law concerning the period of time in which
to bring an action for professional malpractice, a period of time known as the legal “statute of limitations.” On November 22, 2010, the Georgia Supreme Court issued its opinion in Newell Recycling of Atlanta, Inc. v. Jordan, Jones & Goulding, Inc.

In Newell, a professional engineering firm contracted to prepare a concrete work platform that would control drainage at a shredding facility. After the work had been performed and the facility became operational, in around May 2000, the concrete platform began to fail. Four years later, in August 2004, the facility sued the engineering firm for breach of contract and professional negligence.

The firm asked the trial court to dispose of the suit, arguing that the action was barred
by the four-year statute of limitations applicable to actions “upon any implied promise or undertaking” contained in O.C.G.A. § 9-3-25. The trial court denied the engineering firm’s request, concluding that a six-year statute of limitations for contracts in writing, as prescribed at O.C.G.A. § 9-3-24, may apply under the facts of the case. The case was appealed, first to the Georgia Court of Appeals and then to the Georgia Supreme Court.

The Georgia Supreme Court addressed “whether . . . a professional malpractice claim
premised upon a written contract is governed by the four-year statute of limitations . . . rather than the six-year statute of limitations . . . .” The Supreme Court concluded that “[w]here a complete written contract exists in an action for which a contract is pursued . . . the six-year statute of limitations of O.C.G.A. § 9-3-24 applies, regardless of whether the alleged breach stems from the express terms of the agreement or duties that are implied in the agreement as a matter of law.”

The Supreme Court’s decision foreshadows the primary question to be considered in
calculating the statute of limitations in professional malpractice actions based upon services rendered under a written contract: “whether a written agreement actually exists between the parties such that any implied duties sued upon would have grown directly out of the existence of the written contract itself.” In short, Georgia courts will be left to consider whether a contract exists; and, if so, whether the contract can be considered “complete.”

Under Newell, if no written contract exists with regard to the provision of professional
services, a four-year statute of limitations will continue to apply. Further, if a written contract exists, but the contract is “incomplete,” a four-year statute of limitations will also apply. In all other cases where a complete written contract exists between the parties, a six-year statute of limitations will apply.

Since the issue was not before the Court, it did not address O.C.G.A. § 9-3-71, which
sets forth a two-year statute of limitations applicable to professional malpractice actions arisingout of medical malpractice. Therefore, Newell’s impact on medical malpractice actions is questionable. Indeed, the full impact of the Newell decision remains to be seen. Nevertheless, the Georgia Supreme Court’s holding in Newell represents a significant change in the law of professional malpractice in this State; and all professionals should be aware of the opinion.

How to Design an Outdoor Living Space

How to Design an Outdoor Living Space

Outdoor living spaces have grown significantly in popularity and importance in recent years, progressing from secondary spaces to personal sanctuaries, family gathering spots and preferred destinations for entertaining.

Whether working with a professional designer or going it alone, there are four good points to keep in mind while constructing your outdoor oasis: function, style, quality and comfort.

First, it’s important to think about the primary function of the outdoor space. Is to relax, read, sun, grill out with your family or entertain? Or maybe it will have various functions.

Once you have determined this, you can incorporate different elements into an overall plan with flexible items as the anchors. An outdoor kitchen, for instance, can host a family night of grilling or serve as a bar countertop for cocktails. Outdoor seating comes in various offerings and can cater to a world of activities.

Changing seasons can be accomodated by incorporating contrast into the design. A trellis or pergola can be used to provide shade in the hot, summer months and a fire pit or fireplace can offer a cozy alternative to the typically confining, winter months.

It’s all about balance and tone, defining a style across the board. Personal taste and budget will dictate a more simplistic or luxurious point of view, but it’s important to have an integrated scheme outdoors, just as you would on the inside of your home. Whether you prefer Lowcountry Tabby or Japanese Zen, fluidity is key.

It is the combination of hard and soft palettes outdoors that create well-roundedness and can project the appearance of an extension, rather than a separation, of the home. Durable materials, which can be any variant of brick paving, stone, concrete or wood, can carry you from the main home to the outdoor setting, while the maleable materials, or plant life, weave warmth, life and serenity to any backyard.

Privacy fences, walls, enclosures, fountains and other water features should be given the same consideration, relating their colors and style to the design. Further depth can be accomplished with the use of vertical stone applications, statues and statuaries, sculptures, pots, planters, candles, fabrics and outdoor lighting.

Notably, the quality of the products will determine their durability.

In cooler, less humid regions, cast and wrought iron are acceptable, yet in the southeast, they will rust. Teak and woven furniture offer sophisticated, weather-proof alternatives to wicker; as well, many elegant, durable, mildew-resistant fabrics available today are long-sustaining and include customized colors and patterns with their purchase.

High-end appliance makers like Viking and Al Fresco have also entered the outdoor market, featuring a wide range of products that include gas and charcoal grills, smokers, wall ovens, hoods, refrigerators, freezers, wine chillers, beer taps and large-capacity warming drawers.

While initial sticker shock may apply to certain items, it is important to remember that the higher-end products are meant to last a lifetime, while the less expensive items may need to be changed out four to five times over.

That said, an experienced designer should be able to balance your likes with your budget. High-use spaces may need to carry a sturdier product, like stone or tile, underfoot, while secondary paving could come in the form of concrete, perhaps tinted to compliment the stone.

Finally, comfort is largely important.

The furniture itself, the fabric, the cushions and seasonally appropriate gear, like patio heaters, can change the simple outdoors into an oasis for you, your family and friends.

Founded in 1996 by William and Jonathan Rhangos, Savannah Hardscapes is the largest provider of stone, brick, pavers, interior tile and design elements in the Southeast.
