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.

PEI Lighthouse SOLD

I'm actually not sure if this painting sold; I simply lost track of it. There are so many paintings in my past that I have forgotten many I have painted. There was a time when I didn't attempt to keep a record of my work, so I sometimes see paintings that I can't recall painting nor what happened to them. There were two of these, and I can't account for either, something of which I am not proud  I either gave them away or sold them. Hopefully, this will never happen again.
