Love your paintings and especially the one you painted just for us! You have such a wonderful talent!
Dear NJ,

I sent a previous message that was messed up. Please disregard it.

i meant to say that I purchsed the painting below from you years ago at the Germantown Arts Festival when we lived in Cordova.

It’s prominently displayed in our Florida home. I’m updating my insurance coverage and would like to include it. Could you give me an idea what you would sell it for today? Thanks for your help in this.

Hi NJ! I'll be coming to Memphis Nov 2-5. A few years ago you had a show on Broad that weekend -- any chance there will be another this year featuring your work?

Hey Facebook buddies. 👋🏾 It's been a while! Hope everyone is well. Summer will be here soon and I know many will have plans to travel. If you can't get out just yet, I invite you to take a trip inside these dreamy bucolic scenes! They set my mind at ease and have helped me weather our lockdown last year and just being at home more than ever before.

Partners hope to preserve historic one-room schoolhouse that educated Black students in Memphis

Did anyone else see this story? It was posted back in February. It reminded me of one of the many schoolhouses I've painted over the years. This one will be turned into a museum. I'd love to see it in person.

Howdy folks! My online store is now updated with a few new vivid and cheery paintings: "On a Cloudy Day" (like today) and "Catch a Falling Heart" (this tree should exist in real life somewhere, right?!). Who couldn't use an extra heart or two?

Along with the folksy landscape scenes I'm largely known for, I'm exploring abstract painting this season. I have a series of 4 paintings, at the moment, I plan to add more, titled "Symphony". Featured in this post is Symphony #3. When I look at these lines of color, I'm hearing music in my head! Do you have a favorite symphony? Let me know!

My latest paintings, I’ve added a little something extra to the paint: coarse pumice gel. I like to use this technique from time to time for the texture and it engages both sight and touch. “Over Cottoned” and “Delta Days” are both 11x14 inches and available to give a little warmth to a special wall in your home.

While today may not be such a great day to play outside (it's cloudy and looks like it's about to rain here in Memphis), it is the beginning of a new month, and I'm happy that spring is right around the corner. Yay! This piece is really unique because there are areas of relief which I achieve by mixing coarse pumice gel with acrylic paint. This gel raises the paint off of the canvas, creating depth and lots of texture. "A Great Day to Play" is 22"x28", acrylic on canvas, and available here: https://www.njwoods.shop/product/a-great-day-to-play/160?cs=true&cst=custom.

I didn't use any glow-in-the-dark paint but the glow on this moon, against this blue, is fluorescent! I think these two colors really work well together. To get the halo effect: I put a dab of white paint on a damp rag and using circular motions, I work from the middle of the moon to the outside edge while the paint is still a little wet. I encircle the moon, again and again until I have a soft, hazy ring. "Hill Life" is a unique 16x20 inch gallery-wrapped (1¼ inch thick) canvas. You can purchase today, here: https://www.njwoods.shop/product/hill-life/130?cs=true

This painting combines my traditional folksy scenery with an acrylic dirty pour backdrop. Plus it's sprinkled with a little moon dust. It's really a bit of glitter, but that's just between us. Ha!

My mama would get up at daybreak so she would be ready for the cotton fields by the time Mr. Bishop got there in his big yellow school bus to pick her up. Sometimes I would tag along when it was time to make money to spend at the Mid South Fairgrounds. She and my father worked so hard to make sure we were well taken care of. How I miss my sweet mama! I'm blessed to have these paintings and memories to keep her alive in my mind and heart.

My entertainment, many nights, as a kid included laying in bed and watching the moon. Now I'm just as hooked on my iPad as my grandkids. How times change!

My heart for next year's Memphis Child Advocacy Center's Works of Heart event is painted with the acrylic dirty pour method. It's exciting to see how the cells develop and how well the different colors of paint will mix and swirl together.

10/21/2020

Earlier in the year, I planned an exhibition inspired by and dedicated to my dear grandmother, Bobby Lee. Of course, I had to cancel when the pandemic hit. I would still love to do this show when it is safe. Here's a scene I'd love to highlight. In this painting, "The Ball Game," my siblings and I felt utterly safe and secure in her front yard, on that soaring hill in the Castalia neighborhood. We didn't have any worries. Our focus was play! What a contrast to the anxieties many of us are experiencing now. This piece is quite unique in that it's the first time I've combined oil and acrylic paint. I hope everyone is hanging in there as best they can!
