When I asked Artist Peggy Olhson, what word comes to mind when you look at your work and why?
She responded with "peace". "That's what I want to give...peace a chance.
There is so much that is not - peace out there. Whatever that is to each person. I'm hoping that my work could relax the viewer just for a moment, and remind them of a beautiful place and feeling.
Peggy also says, "Well, I love painting for the very same reason, I get to feel that way when painting, and I just love it!"
Peggy is one of the many talented artists featured in the 2012 GAOS tour. To view more of her work, go to www.peggyohlson.com
