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.

Frosty and Rudolph 38x44 Sold

This painting always got comments before it sold. People would always smile when they saw it, and I smiled while painting it. Grandparents of a three-year-old bought it. They said the youngster would run into the room where it hung and laugh at it. It's a good feeling to know that something I painted makes people feel better. Art should make us feel better.
