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.

Interlude 11x14 $60.00

I wish I had learn how to play a musical instrument. After three years of piano lessons as an adult, I gave up the endeavor. The harmonica has always appealed to me because of ease of use. Carried in the pocket or purse, entertainment is within reach. Maybe I need to make my way to a music store and see if a simple, inexpensive one could be found. Yes, it's never too late to learn. I'll do that. Music is good for the soul.
