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.

Santa's Songbird 3x5 SOLD

I painted 10 just like this one last Christmas for my daughter. Santa is taking a moment from his busy pre-Christmas schedule to enjoy a red bird's song. Who could blame him? We would all be better off if we would take a moment to listen to what a bird has to say. ...the wonder of the small.
