The Artist Says:

ďI love the prairie, the mountains, and the sea. I try to find beauty in all of Godís and manís creations and to express that on the canvas. My paintings are but simple moments in time. From the row boat to a single pelican, I want people to find a certain sense of peace when they view my works."
