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.

Believe (sold)


This wood panel was one of a set of three entitled Believe. Whimsical, yet the title says it all. Believe renders the impossible, improbable, and unthinkable in our lives possible. I enjoyed painting these panels. Meant to be sold together, they each sold separately.

  1. The rolex replica sale is a hardy one! Its water resistance of 165 feet is enough for the showers, swimming pools and water parks and its mineral crystal ensures you won't break it if you accidentally bang it against hard corners and surfaces. The replica watches uk uses a Japanese quartz movement that guarantees some serious accuracy. Longevity too! Jap quartzes stay longer on a breitling replica sale battery, without losing time. It can handle the jerks and knocks that may come from the gym or the pool table. You can also wear it replica watches sale to upscale events or when going for a night out with the boys. Even them who deliberately stay out of the fake rolex sale fashion circuits but with an eye and taste for good stuff will sense the replica watches is free from the binds of time and place.
