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.

Roadside Ranch 8x10

There are many places I think I could live without much adjustment. New Mexico is one of them. This view was seen from the interstate. I loved the contrast between the outbuildings and the gray green of the mountainous backdrop   -a beautiful sight. Little wonder New Mexico is referred to as the "Land of Enchantment."
