Destination Unknown | Original and Prints


The original is on Exhibition

I’m incredibly honored and excited to announce that Destination Unknown is at the Swale House on Governors Island, NY for the Re-Imagining Conservation: From the Ground Up exhibition. Many thanks to the Creature Conserve Arts Curator, Heather McMordie. This is this painting’s second time to visit the NYC area to hang in an exhibit. In 2020 it went to the Salmagundi Club for the Audubon Artist’s exhibition and won 3rd place in the watermedia category. The exhibit runs from May 5 – November.

The original is currently ‘pending’ sale on the return of the painting from the exhibit.

Destination Unknown, by Madison Woods, is painted in Ozark handmade watercolor pigments.

Hand-Foraged Pigments, Handmade Watercolor Paints

All of the pigments I use are light-fast earth pigments, unless otherwise noted in the description.

For more information on the various pigments I use, visit this page. We are blessed with an abundance of sandstone in various hues. These make up the bulk of my pigment sources, and most of them come from Felkins creek. Many are also gathered at our own little branch that spills into Felkins and from the rocky shores of King’s river downstream from where Felkins joins the river.
