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.

Bald Rock, Rear View 8x10 $60.00

Cheaha State Park, near my home, is one of Alabama's best kept secrets. Offering noteworthy views any time of year, especially for plein air painting, the park is well-worth the trip . This view is looking out toward Bald Rock's panoramic view; however, the scene is as it appears from the trail through the woods, not from the summit itself.
