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.

Carribean Breeze 11x14 90.00

When I receive my vast inheritance from my long-lost wealthy uncle, I plan on having a beach home, one in a secluded tropical location. Nothing fancy, just a modest bungalow on a quiet beach somewhere will serve the purpose.  A good book, a little conversation with good friends, and the ocean breeze will be all I could ask for. The problem lies with the uncle; he hasn't been located. Caribbean Breeze was painted just in case he doesn't show. With a once inch blue-toned frame, this painting is ready to hang.
