ANTHONY'S BIOGRAPHY

​​Anthony boynton, was born and raised in the state of arizona.  he has remained There except for a shorT There in the valley of the sun.  


HE HAS FIVE SISTERS AND ONE BROTHER, HIS BROTHER HAS SINCE PASSED HOWEVER HIS BROTHERS WIFE KATHEE HAS TAKEN OVER FOR HIM SO ANTHONY HAS SIX SISTERS. HE DABBLED IN MENIAL JOBS AFTER HIGH SCHOOL, AND GOOFED OFF IN COLLEGE​.  HE LIKE SO MANY YOUNG PEOPLE HAD KNOW IDEA WHERE HIS LIVES PATH WOULD TAKE HIM. ANTHONY TRIED TO GET INTO DENTISTRY SO HE COULD FOLLOW IN HIS FATHERS FOOTSTEPS, HOWEVER IT JUST WAS NOT FOR HIM.


HE TRIED TO GET INTO A FIELD OF HIS STEPDAD (YEARS AFTER HIS FATHER PASSED). FOR THREE YEARS HE WORKED FOR WESTINGHOUSE ELECTRIC AS AN ASSEMBLER.  THIS APPEARED TO BE ANOTHER DEAD-END JOB.


ONE DAY OUT OF THE BLUE A FRIEND THAT HE HAD NOT SEEN FOR YEARS KNOCKED ON HIS DOOR.  IT HAPPENED TO BE A FRIEND THAT HE USED TO WORK WITH AS A DENTAL TECHNICIAN. HE WAS NOW A PHOENIX POLICE OFFICER.  HE SAID THAT IT WAS LIKE FATE HAD KNOCKED ON THE DOOR.  ANTHONY RODE A SHIFT WITH THIS FRIEND AND IT WAS THEN HE DECIDED TO GO INTO LAW ENFORCEMENT TOO.  FOR THE NEXT 37.50 YEARS THAT IS WHAT HIS CAREER CONSISTED OF.  YOU THE READER CAN READ MORE ABOUT THIS BY READING "IT'S MY BADGE, I EARNED IT."


FROM AUGUST 27, 1973 UNTIL DECEMBER 3, 2010 HE HAD A VERY FULL AND ENJOYABLE CAREER, WHICH ENCOMPASSED NUMEROUS ASSIGNMENTS


AFTER RETIRING FROM THE CITY OF PHOENIX HE CHOSE TO WRITE A BOOK ABOUT HIS CAREER.  AT THE SAME TIME HE BEGAN PAINTING.  ALTHOUGH HE HAS HAD NO FORMAL TRAINING HE HAS DEVELOPED INTO QUITE THE ARTIST.  HE REFERS TO THIS AS A GOD GIVEN TALENT.  HE HAS BEEN IN NUMEROUS ART SHOWS, AND CURRENTLY AT TIME OF THIS ENTRY HE HAD ONE OF HIS WORKS ON DISPLAY AT THE "MOUNTAIN ARTISTS GUILD, GALLERY," IN PRESCOTT, ARIZONA.


ALL THE WHILE HE WAS ENGAGED IN HIS PAINTINGS HE FOUND TIME TO WRITE A COUPLE MORE BOOKS.  "THROUGH NORTHERN ARIZONA - 1913," WAS WRITTEN AND WAS PUBLISHED 100 YEARS AFTER THAT TRIP.


THIS BOOK HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT, BUT HE FOUND IT TO BE VERY SELF-FUFILLING.  THE BOOK IS ABOUT THE AUTHORS GRANDFATHER AND HIS GRANDMOTHER WHO TOOK A TRIP FROM PHOENIX TO THE GRAND CANYON AND BACK IN A 1913 STUDEBAKER TOURING CAR.  THE TRIP TOOK JUST OVER A MONTH, AND THEY TRAVELED 1000 MILES.  VERY ENJOYABLE READ.


ANTHONY'S LATEST BOOK DEALS WITH THE POLITICS INVOLVED IN GETTING INTO ART SHOWS OR GETTING ONES WORK INTO GALLERY'S.  HAVING DEALT WITH POLITICS DURING MY FIRST CAREER HE FOUND THAT THE POLITICS ESPECIALLY IS THOSE SETTINGS WERE LESS DIFFICULT TO DEAL WITH THAN THE ONES THAT HAVE TO BE DEALT WITH IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR. 


THE ARTIST THOROUGHLY ENJOYS PAINTING AND FEELS THAT HE CAN EXPRESS HIS TALENT SUCH THAT HIS CONSUMERS ARE VERY PLEASED WITH THEIR CHOICES.


ANTHONY ENJOYS WRITING ALTHOUGH EACH AND EVERY TIME SAID HE WILL NOT WRITE ANOTHER BOOK.  HE SINCERELY HOPES THE CONTENTS OF ALL THREE BOOKS ARE ENJOYABLE TO YOU THE CONSUMERS.  THANK YOU FOR VIEWING THIS SITE.
