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.

Morning Light on Terrace 14x18 150.00

Light is a dancer who has unlimited ability. The simplest objects are morphed into fascinating studies by her presence. Little wonder that light is used in the metaphorical sense to refer to the person, presence, and power of God in this world. Light warms, reveals, restores, and heals.  Its absence is a sure signal of death. Light on the Terrace is a simple architectural arrangement with light as the main player. This piece hangs at Mrs. Anita's Restaurant on Hwy. 9 North between Ashland and Lineville.
...needs a permanent home.
