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 …

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 …

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 …
