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.

Trouble 16x20

My neighbor has donkeys scattered among his cows. Daily in my walk, I pass and watch the latest antics of these guys.  If I could afford to simply buy an animal for viewing purposes, I would have myself some donkeys. Come to think of it, there would be no point in such a purchase as long as my neighbor has his. I think he enjoys them as much as I.
