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.

Geraniums in the Sun 5x7 $50.00

Some friends went out west on a camping vacation and took me (why I don't know). We spent several days walking the streets of Santa Fe. Try it sometime-nothing better. We spent most of those days on Santa Fe Drive, the hot spot for art galleries. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. While there, I took a lot of photos, many of which contained the beautiful flowers along the streets. These geraniums were some of many beautiful floral arrangments. In that New Mexico hot sun, geraniums thrived.
