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.

Calendar Scene 10x20 90.00

We have all seen them, the old calendars with those famous scenes which we recognize instantly, yet can't name the title or artist. When I saw this old photo, I remembered a calender which was displayed in my parents' home. I had to give the scene a try. Granted, this piece is not original, but the scene is a comfort to me.
