About the Wild Ozark Nature Journal

I’m slowly scanning my nature journal entries and adding them to this blog.

Some of you may have already seen these, because I started this a few years ago and then let it get lost among the other things I am trying to do. Now I’m reviving the effort. Most of these are compiled in a picture ebook for Kindle.

Now I’m reorganizing and gearing up to get back into the habit of daily journaling. Once I make new drawings enough to fill another ebook, I’ll publish the second volume.

Get the index to the other journal entries and read about my project at Wild Ozark Nature Journal.

About Wild Ozark
Wild Ozark is a nature farm. Mostly we grow rocks. I use those rocks and some of the herbs to make earth pigments and watercolor paints. We also grow native clay that I use for paint and various other things. And then there are the trees. We grow lots of trees. My husband uses some for his woodworking and some for our Burnt Kettle Shagbark Hickory Syrup, but for the most part they stand around creating good air, shade, & habitat for the ginseng nursery.

Follow me on Instagram to keep up with paints, art, and random nature pictures I make in real time.

My art and paints are available on Etsy! But if you're interested in owning a Madison Woods original, follow me on Instagram or FB because sometimes they go out the door as soon as I make the final post to say they're done.

About the voice behind this blog, Madison Woods
I'm a creative old soul living way off the beaten path with my husband in the wild Ozark Mountains. You can find my art on display and for sale at the Kingston Square Arts shop in Kingston, Arkansas. It's a tiny little town and a bit off the path to anywhere at all, but a wonderful ride out to a most beautiful part of our state. Besides homesteading, growing plants & making arts & crafty things, I write books and stories. My rural fantasy fiction, written under the pen name, Ima Erthwitch, usually takes place in a much altered Ozarks.

  1. I still haven’t gotten going on my nature notebook, even though I took it to Wyoming with me. Perhaps I’ll get going soon. I admire the fact that you’re always working on something new and creative. 🙂


    1. This is another one of those things that require me to leave the camera at home. If I bring the camera, I’ll take a photo of it, then I’ll want to work on the drawing from the photo instead of sitting there to do it. Which ruins the “experience” I’m trying to have, lol. I have to be vigilant against my own self!

    1. Thanks 🙂 That’s the first time I’ve *really* drawn something in years. I’ve missed doing it, didn’t realize how much until this morning.

    1. I’m not sure yet what I’ll do on the days I can’t go for my walk. Maybe just sit on the porch and draw something I can find there, if I need to be out of the weather or if the grandkids are over or something. But thanks! I’m pretty enthused by this project. It serves many purposes for me.
