Figurative Work Paintings of people doing interesting things.
Work on Paper This gallery features my latest work in gouache paint on water color paper or brown paper. I have been painting with gouache for over twenty years, enjoying the color and quality this medium yields. Some works are inspired by Morris Graves, other works are inspired by early American painters such as Edward Hicks and interesting characters that keep popping up in my work.
Dogs and Creatures I love to paint dogs and various other creatures show up as well. I find dogs an endless source of material since they are so diverse in looks and nature.
Landscapes Ms. O'Briens landscape paintings are inspired by the view from her studio window overlooking the Snohomish river and also the Palouse region of Eastern Washington state.

When life throws you a punch
Okay, so every time I write in my blog its' always I'm going to consistent, I'm going to write something every week. Good intentions, always, but sometimes you get side swiped by life. My husband, Rob, has Parkinsons Disease beginning 10 years ago.

Gearing up for the Santa Fe Studio Tour
Come one, Come all!!! The Santa Fe Studio Tour is almost here again! I will be joining Wendy Foster and Joyce Robins at Wendy Foster Creative Studio located at 815 Early Street. We are hosting a "Sparkling Studio "preview Friday night October 8th at 5-8pm.

Still Here!
I am still here and working, albeit slowly....I am going to participate in the Santa Fe Studio Tour this year which takes place in October. I have decided to concentrate on my Days of the Dead women and girl portraits.

Happy New Year 2021
After a long winters night, and a very long 2020 we have made it into 2021. My painting has slowed down a bit but I am still here. Thinking about new directions, new ideas for new works.

A new sunny day
A beautiful sunny day to reflect past paintings and contemplate new ones. I had painted this horse flying over the Taos Rio Grande gorge and didn't think it was finished or I might change it altogether. I really like how the gorge is painted, I'm just not sure about the rest of it.
