Doug Hall has always lived in the hills and woods of Southwest Missouri. Growing up, he wanted to be a frontiersman. At age 15, he skipped school and talked his brother into driving him to Kentucky to buy his first flint lock musket. He says he has no recollection of a time when he did not paint. His mother fostered this talent and cultivated it by providing books, oil paints, canvas and always had an easel up in the house. Doug focuses his paintings on Eastern Woodland Indians. He paints at his Log Cabin Studio in Southwest Missouri, where he also rides his Missouri Fox Trotters. On Sundays, he hosts a black powder shoot at the range behind the studio.
