I wear two hats with different names: Madison Woods when I’m wearing the artist hat, Roxann Riedel in real life and real estate. I'm a rock-smashing paint-making artist & a sales agent for Montgomery Whiteley Realty. Hailing from the wild Ozarks in Kingston, Arkansas where my husband and I work toward a sustainable lifestyle.

You can text or call to reach me by either name (see above):

An Imaginary Creek-side Scene

River cane arching over the creek from the opposite shore, sycamore trees on the nearside. A path for nature-lovers and wildlife meanders over the roots. This is the foundation for my imaginary creek-side scene.

When I finished the Twisted Tree painting, the painting I was working on before this creek scene, there was brown (magnetite) paint left on my palette. Given the work it takes to make a tube of paint, wasting any at all is painful. So I used the dab of magnetite to make the underpainting for a new scene.

Here’s how it looked throughout the painting process:
