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.

Potting Shed 16x20 $100.00

I love the colors of clay pots against greenery. Having painted clay pots on many occassions, I  should tire of them, but I don't. This arrangment of clay pots against a wood-grain background reminds me of the pots that I store on the my patio. These are empty like mine, waiting for spring. Potting Shed is a recent piece that has special appeal to me.
