Flash Sale | Painting of Whisper in Bone pigments

I am going to start choosing a random painting to offer at deep discount every once in a while. If I can remember to do so, I’ll make this a quarterly event. The first one up is Whisper, my painting of a Brahman cow in bone pigments. Her usual price is $2800, but for this …

Suck it up, Buttercup

This whole year has been a busy one and I’m glad it’s time to wind it down. There’s still a lot of catching up to do, though, because for the past several weeks I feel like I’ve been running non-stop. And this is my after-the-fact whining, grumble-grumble post about the recent event in Rogers. I …

NWA Boutique Show in Rogers, Arkansas

For the past few months I’ve been preparing for this weekend. I’m excited to be a vendor at the NWA Boutique Show in Rogers, Arkansas. I’ve never attended or vended this show before, so I’m not sure what to expect. But from the list of other vendors that’ll be there, it sounds like a Christmas …

Beech Tree Leaves, New Business Cards, NWA Boutique Show

I haven’t taken the time lately to make a blog post. I’ve been busy getting ready to bring my artwork to the NWA Boutique Show coming up in Rogers. Today I’m printing and cutting the 8 x 10 prints. If I’m very efficient with my time, perhaps I’ll get to the packaging of prints and …

Is Art made through Magic, Intuition, or Knowledge?

I once heard it spoken in one of the great (virtual) hallways where educated artists gather, that an ‘intuitive artist’ doesn’t exist. That an artist only uses knowledge and conscious decisions to know what to do on their canvas – no mystery involved. The idea, of whether that is true or not, lodged like a …

Highlander and Longhorn Cow | Painting Process for ‘Best Friends’

Every year for their birthdays, the grandkids pick the subject they want me to paint. And every time we do this, their requests are getting more and more challenging. The latest one I’ve started is a scene that includes two cows. Not just any cows, but a longhorn and a highlander. I make a print …

Sharing the Awe | The Reason for My Art

A large part of my reason for doing art is that it gives me a means for sharing the awe I feel when I create something. Since I began working with these Ozark pigments, the level of wonder and amazement I experience has increased exponentially. Same when it comes to making sculptures and beads with …

Nature Art in Progress | Sally (the orange spotted salamander)

Click through to see my whimsical nature art in progress. This is Sally (the salamander), and she’s the third character in my whimsical Down at the Creek series. I’ll add characters to this series as they coalesce in my imagination. The series will culminate in a large painting (22 x 30″) that combines all the scenes into one large setting. Fun, right!?

Nature Inspired Art | A New Collection

Down at the Creek, a nature inspired series of paintings The other day I went out with my plein air pack, intending to paint a nature inspired scene down at the creek. As usual, I’m using exclusively Ozark pigments (handmade watercolors) for this. After settling down on one of the big rocks, I started putting …

Provenance of a Paint

Most of my paints begin with a rock. Sometimes I remember to record the process it goes through from rock to paint, and sometimes the process isn’t quick. This is the story of a paint made from a reddish sandstone found here at Wild Ozark. It’s the provenance of Number 2021-01. I’m still working with …

What Does OOAK Mean?

What does OOAK mean in arts and crafts descriptions and titles? It means one of a kind (ooak), but this might not always be so clear cut as you might think. Pay close attention to item descriptions and ask questions of the seller if you want to be sure you’re getting truly unique items. One …

The New ‘Shop Wild Ozark’ Website

The new Shop Wild Ozark URL is https://shop.wildozark.com/ I’ve finally gotten most of the art, prints, notecards, and pigment products moved over to the new Shop Wild Ozark location. I’m sure there might have been an easier way to do it, but since I wanted to redesign the whole thing, I didn’t want to export/import …

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 …
