Unique Art by Madison Woods

If you’re seeking unique art, I am happy to show you my work. Thanks for stopping by!


Most of my work from this point onward will most likely be Ozark pigments in oils. I make the paint the same way, except instead of using gum Arabic, I’m using linseed oil. Instead of using paint thinners, I use black walnut oil. My goal is to avoid the chemicals as much as possible. All of the colors in my oil paintings are derived from locally foraged pigments, except the white. I buy white pigment and make the paint from the purchased powder.


Most of the artwork prior to 2022 is painted using the Ozark pigments in watercolor. I gather rocks from our property and process them into pigments to use in my paintings. For unique art, there are few other options that provide this level of ‘uniqueness’. I’ll be adding images of this year’s work here soon.




About my Art Process

My goal is to create unique art with as much of the materials as I can foraged from right here at home at Wild Ozark. The pigments in my work all comes from rocks, bone, soot, and a couple of lightfast plants. I process each tube or pan of paint myself. With the oil paints, I do not have a naturally occurring source of white, so I purchase titanium powder to make my white paint. So everything with ‘color’ is Ozark color, but that color is adjusted with outsourced titanium to make it lighter or darker, or white.

I have open studio every Saturday at my studio/gallery in Alpena Arkansas. Where I live in Kingston is pretty remote and it isn’t feasible to invite guests to see my work at home. So I have a space inside the Alpena Mercantile, a historic building on the main street. Since it’s constructed with native stones, it seems the perfect place to call my home away from home.

Because I live down a long dirt road with low-water bridges that flood when it rains enough, cancellations are possible. To stay abreast of any schedule changes, either subscribe to my newsletter and check off the special group for studio updates, or email me if you’re making a special trip. That way I can let you know if I can’t make it. Newsletter subscribers can also join the special group to be notified when I’ve got new works available.

I hate needing this anti-theft software, but my entire website is being scraped and republished on other sites. If you'd like to use photos or content on your own website, go to my Contact page and let me know. I'm almost always happy to allow it.
