Historical Buildings  

These original historical buildings in watercolor are not for sale, but the posters are. Over the years the Heart of Tyler downtown association commissioned Adams to research and paint buildings--some existing and some not--near downtown Tyler. The paintings were converted to poster-sized prints for sale during their summer Festival on the Square event. Adams donated the artwork for printing but kept the originals. The only work that is not watercolor is a pastel rendering of the PATH building on Front Street. There are twelve posters in all. A calendar is available for $40.00

Book Covers  

These three book covers are watercolors commissioned by the University of North Texas Press. The "13 Days in October" illustration is on a publication featuring a portrait of John F. Kennedy, who was at the center of the Cuban missile crisis in the sixties. The article shows research that reveals Kennedy had no idea where the missiles would land once they were launched from New Mexico. It was all a bluff, but it worked.
