Thomas Harold Fleming
 Watercolors & Acrylics


As a very young man in Athens, Georgia, Harold Fleming painted signs in storefront windows or anywhere his new found
expertise was needed.

His evident creative talents followed him into the Navy during World War II where he became a reconnaissance photographer
and also assisted with machine gun position. He photographed most of the central Pacific islands in route to Japan aboard a plane that also bore his artistic touch...a large comical masterpiece on the plane's side. It depicted the foreign enemy in great distress, being stood upon, and urinated on by a large, grinning yellow dog. The plane was aptly named, "Hound Dog."

Post war, Harold's photographic and artistic talents led him into
what would later begin his career in the printing business.

In 1949, while working for Photo-Process Engraving Company in Atlanta as a camera operator, he designed and constructed a large format darkroom process camera, for use by, then, photo engravers. The camera bore the name of it's creator- The Fleming Process Camera and it was used daily in the Atlanta plant.

In 1962, Harold began his own printing company in Atlanta, Fleming Color Service, Inc., specializing in four color process printing and serving a large variety of clientele, both local and non-local. He retired from the company in the late 1980's.

In the mid 1990's, Fleming created his first limited edition print, "Touchdown To Peace", commemorating the Japanese surrender and the end of World War II fifty years prior. Today, several of these signed prints hang in historical public galleries.
(Note: "Touchdown To Peace" print available for purchase elsewhere on this site.)

Today, as always, Harold's interest in creatively expressing himself in watercolors and acrylics is a satisfying hobby with much of his subject matter being people, places or things he has been acquainted  with, or exposed to, during his lifetime. He occasionally attends artist workshops and seminars, one recently requiring a trip to Mexico. He now resides in New Smyrna Beach, Florida.
