Doug Hall's Log Cabin Gallery

DOUG HALL'S NEOSHO BIG SPRING BLUFF

When Neosho native artist Doug Hall was asked to do a painting of an iconic Neosho scene which could be used for bringing recognition to Neosho, he had no trouble choosing a favorite spot: the bluff above the waterfall of the Big Spring Park.

This bluff has been the backdrop of visitors' photographs since the waters were brought under control in the 1920's.

Doug Hall is nationally known for his paintings of the Woodland Indians and historic accuracy. He imagined the Big Spring waters of the 1700s as they flowed freely over the flatlands that now make up the Park and the Neosho city Square.  Woodland tribes had migrated to this area for its rich hunting grounds of deer, beaver, fish and buffalo drawn to the rich waters of Neosho. Neosho is an Osage word for waters.

The newly expanded Neosho Newton County Library unveiled Doug's painting as a tile mural at the entrance to their new Community Room September 2018

Doug Hall has painted all his life and he sold his first painting at age 10 for $2.50 on a weekend Neosho event of Art in the Park where he set up his easel on the long sidewalk to the wading pool. He is nationally known, but his gallery is in Neosho.
