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.

Villa Entrance 16x20 125.00

-just finished as of Saturday. Villa Entrance 16x20 was difficult because of the distance created in the background. I struggled with achieving the expanse of the distance between the villiage and background. I like anything that has the "old world" look. This is a scene from a travel brochure for an Italian vacation, which appeals to me immensely. -just maybe someday.
