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.

Blackeyes and Blouder SOLD

My sister-in-law bought this from me several years ago. She was buried yesterday, and I will truly miss her. Phyllis loved art, music, and the Crimson Tide. The Tide would be first on the list. She was a pretty good art customer, but she preferred buying game tickets over art. That's OK. The sister piece to this was Blackeyes and Butterflies. Guess what that painting had in it? I'll try to post it next.
