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.

Poinsettias 36x40 SOLD

    This painting was one that sold three Christmases ago- a surprise gift for one who loved Christmas and  any thing related to Christmas. When living in Florida, I was surprised to learn that poinsettias grew outside there as shrubbery. Growing rather large, they were beautiful if well-tended and protected from occasional cold snaps. This painting always garnered positive comments, and I was glad to see it adopted by Christmas lovers. I always want my paintings to be in a good home.
