Artist's Statement

A quote from Grant Wood describes a condition from which he and many of us suffer: taking too much for granted. Wood said, "...To my great joy, I discovered that in the very commonplace, in my native surroundings, were decorative adventures and that my only difficulty had been in taking them too much for granted." Woods' words ring with truth. My goal as an artist is to capture the wonder of the often overlooked ordinary, the commonplace beauty around us, those little details that make all the difference in our daily lives. The rough hue of rocks, lush blue woodlands, weathered wood grains, and distant meandering dirt roads never cease to appeal to me. I attempt to share the beauty from which routine blinds us. My work can be purchased on ebay or by contacting me personally.

Big Chair in Santa Fe 30x32

The light was incredible that morning in Santa Fe. I spotted this chair out front of one of the many galleries on Santa Fe Drive. In any other setting, the chair would have been simply a big chair, but in the clear light, colors were more brilliant and ordinary objects had a life of their own. I loved the way the morning light fell on the huge chair and tipped the geraniums. There are many places in which I could live, but Santa Fe, NM is high on the list.

  1. Unlike other high precision watches that rely on external replica watches signals or need to sent away for recalibration after a battery change, Precisionist watches use lithium hublot replica batteries that can be as easily replaced as those in other quartz timepieces. The hour and minute hands have a distinctive, curved design, while the simple red seconds counter again features the brand rolex replica sale as its counterweight. Those who are thrown into fits of rage or bouts of enfeebled snark by hublot replica like this will have plenty to say, but in my opinion, the dial and case look cool, refreshing, and fun. Arabic hour markers with faux patina lume. The attractive syringe hands and central chronograph seconds have faux patina lume applied too. I will consider using 2018 replica watches for my next watch purchase. It would have been helpful to know that before going through all the other steps.
