|The Man Behind Uncle Jed
|Buddy Ebsen may currently be in the
forefront of celebrity art but, his love for
painting began at a much earlier age. Ebsen says
of his paintings, "I always had a strong
interest in color even when I was 10 years old.
My mother was a painter and she enrolled us in
art school after we left Belleville, Illinois
when I was 10 to move to Palm Beach". Buddy
also states, "I love acting and I also love
playing the saxophone, but for me painting is a
very different experience because I do not need
an audience to make it complete, the connection
is between the painter and the painting, one on
one". Buddy has also painted landscapes,
seascapes and self-portraits. Click the link to

Buddy as "Jed
Surprisingly, Buddy never intended to
be an actor. His goal in life was to be a doctor.
After completing pre-med studies at the
University of Florida, he was unable to continue
his studies and moved to New York in 1928 to try
his hand at show business.
Buddy Ebsen's best known
characterization is that of Jed Clampett,
patriarch of that celebrated piece of Americana, The
Beverly Hillbillies. His second best known
is the television sleuth Barnaby Jones.
