 I have admired Rose Olson's work for a few years. I saw her work in Atlanta at Marcia Wood Gallery in 2007 "Luxe, Calme et Volupte"  which was curated by Joanne Mattera . I love the subtle use of color in conjunction with the wood panel coming through. The contract of the works that punch with vivid color is stunning. There is a serene soft glow that is special. Click here to see a slide show of works from the Kingston Gallery show "The Viewers Eye". Please visit to view more.
Hope your Sunday and long weekend is fabulous~

  1. what wonderful paintings! it's especially notable that rose allows the beautiful wood (birch?) grain to show through, becoming part of the work itself.
