What do I talk about in the newsletter?

I share a bit of whatever I’ve been up to, whether it’s art related or homestead related. Sometimes it’s nature-related. We live in the middle of 160 acres in the Ozark mountains of northwest Arkansas. So life may be a bit different here for us than it is for you. You might find that interesting!

Win a free 5 x 7″ Print – or an NFT! Only for newsletter subscribers.

Each month in my newsletter, I’ll give away a print to newsletter subscribers who entered the previous month. If you want to enter that giveaway, just hit ‘reply’ to the newsletter (or use the button provided – but read the text in the email first and make sure you don’t want to change it!) and let me know. I’ll do a random number drawing and announce the winner in the next issue. (I’ve been doing good with this part- monthly!)

NEW! Winners will have the option of receiving my soon to be minted on Tezos “Ozark Rocks & Leaf” NFT or a 5 x 7 physical print of their choice. If you want the NFT but don’t know how to receive it, no worries, I am happy to tell you how I set up my wallet. A wallet is free and you don’t have to buy any Tez. All I do is send it from my wallet to yours.

Workshops, Paints, and Original Art segments

Now that it’s warming up, I’ll start doing some pigment foraging and paint-making workshops. So if you want to know when those are planned, but don’t want to watch the blog, check off that box. Similarly, if you want to get emails when I have new paint sets ready to sell, or want to know when I have new original art, tick off the boxes to get on those special interest lists. Those are chatty emails, just notification newsletters.

Thanks for getting on board and becoming a Wild Ozarkian!

    I really fascinated with this concept of painting. I have been a watercolor artist for about 17 years

      Thanks for visiting, Gary! I have a basic tutorial here on the website for how to make the rough paints (https://www.wildozark.com/handmade-watercolor-paint/). It’s been an incredibly interesting journey as I learn how to use them to make art.

      Hi Justin, I just found your comment here and I’m not sure if I replied to you via email or not. If you’re still looking to sell your roots, try posting this comment over at the prices page (www.wildozark.com/2018-ginseng-prices/). One thing to be aware of, though, is if by ‘inherited it from your grandpa’ you mean the roots themselves have been passed down to you already harvested 10-15 years ago, it may be illegal to sell them in your state. The laws vary from state to state, though.

    Still checking out your website but am enjoying all the information you have. I have always loved plants and getting my hands dirty in the soil. Lately I’ve become interested more in native plants and herbs. Moved from MI to NC several years ago and have just recently started to notice the natives in my yard (in a sub div but have almost half acre lot with a natural wooded area). May move in a few years after retirement to a little more rural area with more land and trees. Thinking maybe of growing ginseng and other companions.

      Hi Donna, thanks for reading! I’m always excited to hear from other nature and plant lovers. I’d always been interested and enjoyed both, but when we moved from our semi-urban life in south Louisiana to the very rural and wild Ozarks, it was a big change. Like a smorgasbord of plants and nature had suddenly appeared in front of me, lol. In NC I imagine there is a lot of opportunity for nature and native plants, and you should definitely be able to find a place where you can grow the ginseng and companions 🙂
