Wilson's original oil paintings include: historical agrarian settings and people, tallgrass prairie and prairie wildlife. He feels his art is irrevocably bound to his region and family heritage. Born into a farming family, it's natural that these subjects speak clearest to him and why he feels a deep responsibility to translate them.
Wilson has been juried into national exhibits and has artwork in private, corporate and museum collections. Wilson is an associate member of the Oil Painters of America (OPA).
