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.

Christmas Blues 16x20 Sold

Christmas was indeed magical to me (sorry about the tired expression). The preceding days before the big night seemed an eternity to my pea brain. I was euphoric with anticipation. On Christmas afternoon however, the reality that Christmas was over hit home and I crashed. It was over. Life had lost meaning. I was distraught. An entire year stretched before me. NO MORE CHRISTMAS until then. Perhaps this puppy is feeling the same emotions.
