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.

Ashland City Park 11x14 quote me a price

The city of Ashland is not a metropolis with all the bells and whistles; we know that. However, our little park is hard to beat. Great for family gatherings, quiet walks, or just a peaceful place to chill, the city park is a retreat from the daily grind. I love it, so I painted a view of it.
