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.

Parrot, GA SOLD

Parrot, GA is just a stop in the road in the midst of Jimmy Carter peannt country. Years ago, my family and I would pass through here on our way to AL from FL. I always wanted to stop and get out and look at one antique store, but the driver had his mind on "making good time." Why is making good time so important? Is there a record that must be set that I don't know about. This little place always looked so interesting to me, like a western town lost in time. I kept looking for Matt Dillon to walk down the street.
