Red Oak Art Studio

Welcome. Red Oak Art Studio has been established for nearly 20 years. Original oil paintings,(commissions), Murals, and sign painting. Although at this time the only type of hand lettering and pinstripping I do is just  for specialty type signs. Oil paintings of the natural world consisting of woodland scenes, rivers, animals both wild and tame are a strong love. Oil Paintings of  the Native American culture and people has been a real passion.  

Red Oak Art Studio is located at my home south of Rosebud Mo.

Journey through the display of some of my original oil paintings. I will describe for you each and every painting; the meaning, the size and availability. All paintings are already framed in beautiful attractive, complimentary frames, and title plates attached. All paintings have available prints. The prints are high quality Gicl’ee printed on stretched canvas, ready for framing. The canvas prints give the idea of a real painting, framing is all that is necessary. I sign my paintings as woodswalker 7 a spirit name I acquired a long time ago. Will ship anywhere in the country.

I have painted many murals over the years. I only have seven pictured on this website. The second was painted in 2004 in Sullivan Missouri.the size is 12 1/2 ft. by 62 ft. I use 40 year warranty paint on my murals finish with a graffiti proof sealer. My murals have a lasting beauty. I will travel farther than 50 mile radius to do murals with certain specifications. I have also painted many murals for churches and private homes as well.

The third mural was painted at a private home. Is 8’x7′. Painted on concrete wall. Scene is a slightly opened old time door with a little wood gnome peeking out. Brick and vines wrap about and a little flower fairy, and tree nymph fly joyfully.

The fourth mural was also painted at a home residence. It is 7’x19′. It is actually a family portrait from the “backside” as requested, looking out unto what they all love nature and wild flowers.

Ishi, Last of the Yahi Tribe - Prints(11x14)
Ishi, Last of the Yahi Tribe - Prints(11x14)
In northern CA., Ishi lived almost a year alone after all his remaining family had perished. After seeing a vision of his beloved cousin Tushi, she told him to go and live among the white man and tell his story. She told him he would only be living with them for 5 winters. With his burnt off hair,in mourning, nearly naked and starving he found himself in the white man's world and taken in by a 10 year old, blond haired, Alexander Pope and his father, a physician. For five years "Little Wolf" as Ishi called Alexander, became a shadow of Ishi as he hung on his every word and story shared. Dr. Saxton Pope said, "Ishi looked upon us as sophisticated children, smart but not wise. We knew many things, much of what was false. He knew nature, which is always true. Ishi was kind, courageous, and had self restraint, and though all had been taken from him, there was no bitterness in his heart. His soul was that of a child, and mind that of a philosopher." In five short years Ishi fell ill and passed away as predicted on March 25th 1916,...One hundred years ago on the very day that I completed this painting, March 25, 2016.
