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.

A notecard I received inspired this study. I have an ongoing love affair with old rock buildings.

  1. What I will say for this is that the colour palette is unusual, and I personally think it replica watches well. Whether is actually want to look at it every day, I will sure. Then I caught rolex replica uk of those new antibiotic untreatable infections after the surgery. Got a bit tense for a while, had to spend a lot longer in rolex replica sale than initially thought. Still a lot of recuperation to go, even another operation still to come. More than replica watches uk its just so annoying because, I can drive, walk, or work for what seems like its going to be a while yet. I finally had me knees replaced last February, so I feel for you and know the replica watches you are traveling. Take care and heal as fast as possible. The dial, on the other hand, is a bit of a mess. Strangely graceless for the price of a brand 2017 replica watches. Okay, rolex replica uk interpretation is of old fashioned pocket watch style, is now a thing.
