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.

Blue Enamelware 8x10 $60.00

I bought these enamel dishes for sheer decoration several years ago. They were in my kitchen for several years until I decided that I needed to simplify my "decor." Before they left my kitchen, I decided to paint them as a token of my affection. I have always liked blue and yellow together,  so this little study is one of my favorites.
