|Biography from Wickliff & Associates Auctioneers, Inc.:|
|Dan Woodson was born in New Castle, Indiana, in 1945 and attended school in Muncie, where he currently resides.|
In 1962, he enlisted in the U.S. military. Returning home to
Indiana in 1967, he began a 33-year career in the sign industry.
He also became a master sign painter, winning a national design
competition in 1998.
With no formal training in fine art, Woodson has received much
recognition for his paintings. Since first competing in 1993, his
regional and national awards include:
Top 200 of 1,715 entries, National Arts for the Parks, Jackson Hole, WY, 1999

He and co-founder Anne Carter conceived and implemented the statewide
Indiana Plein-Air Painters Association, with 310 members to date
(2005). In 1998, he was one of five artists participating in the
Painting Indiana Project.
In the Painting Indiana book, Dan said, "Success is not what you
gain as a result; it is knowing in your heart that you did your
best, regardless of the results."
