Coffeetime at Wild Ozark | A collection

Here’s a collection of paintings to celebrate coffeetime and delight the coffee lovers. Coffee with donut, coffee with beignets, a quiet coffee sipping spot, favorite mug, a somewhat unconventional way to drink coffee, and last but not least, coffee with bourbon.

An Artist’s Work Task List | Catching up with April

Hermit Journal 10 April 2022 Technically, I’m not really a hermit because my husband is here. But we both have projects to work on most days, so unless I’m helping him or he’s helping me, during the day we have gone our separate ways to get our tasks done. So we’re both kind of ‘daytime …

Finished A Painting Marathon, now taking a break

For the past five weeks, I’ve been on a painting marathon. That’s why I haven’t been making blog posts, and haven’t done much else, either. I’ve been working on a collection called Coffeetime at Wild Ozark. These are all smaller paintings on handmade paper I’d bought a couple of years ago. For whatever reason, I …

Wild Ozark Hermit Report | Upcoming Shows

The weather is torturing me with spells of warm, sunny days followed by days of bitter cold and wind. I’m so ready for spring. But it’s been busy around here and I haven’t had a chance to make a blog post in a while. So here’s the Wild Ozark Hermit Report of what’s been happening …

Hibernation Avoidance | Hermit Musings

This winter I haven’t felt much like doing anything at all outside. But yesterday the sun started shining and today it will continue. I think the temps will be bearable tomorrow, too. I want so badly to get outside and DO something. I started writing this post on Saturday afternoon, it was nearly time to …

Barnyard Mayhem | A Different Sort of NFT Art

So, I had an idea to have some fun in Photoshop with the last painting I did. Remember the Weesatche house? Now that I’ve added a few things, it’s more like barnyard mayhem, and that’s exactly how I titled the NFT I made from it. Don’t worry, the original painting is the same as it …

Mistaken Identity | Sassafras or Osage?

Oh my, what a huge case of mistaken identity. The tree I’d assumed was sassafras is definitely not. It’s an Osage orange. And yes, I do know those two trees look entirely different, but all I had to go on were roots and a weathered trunk.

Wild Ozark Musings | January Issue

This post is the same as the newsletter email that just went out to subscribers. A long time ago, maybe a few years, I’d sent out a poll asking if subscribers were also subscribers to my website. Most of the responses were no, so that means posting the newsletter here shouldn’t be too much repetition …

New Acceptance | Regional Art Museum | RAM

My largest painting to date, Whisper, was accepted into Fort Smith’s Regional Art Museum (RAM) Annual Invitational Show. The theme is Metamorphosis. At first glance, a painting of a cow doesn’t seem to have any parallels with the theme, does it? It’s not the subject, but the medium. Whisper is 22 x 30″ and entirely …

The Weesatche Farmstead

Weesatche, Texas | Another Farmstead Painting

I’m working on a painting for my husband’s Christmas gift. It may not be finished in time, but it won’t be too long afterwards before I’m done. It’s the house where his aunts lived in Weesatche, Texas. It was a little German settlement, with houses, businesses, and a big round gathering hall. He’s told me …

What is NFT art?

I’ve finally listed an NFT artwork for sale. What is an NFT art, you ask? Now that I’ve been wandering around in that strange world for a little while, maybe I can try to shed some light on the whole, confusing topic. Before I get to explaining, I want to show you my first one …

Arkansas Locally Made | Avoid the Christmas Gift Crisis

With all the cargo ships moored offshore our major ports, it’s beginning to look like a Christmas gift crisis could strike major retailers. But if you’ll check out Arkansas locally made items, I bet you’ll find some things to check off some of your list. This weekend there’s a group of us getting together to …
