Her most prolific hobbies include routine beer drinking, solo dance parties and the ritual of dousing the divine with the atrocious, using pencils and paintbrushes as the viscosity. A self-taught portrait artist by trade, her primary fuel for creativity is juxtaposition. The marriage of beauty and tragedy is uniquely appealing in prose, paint and life in general to Olga. Joining these two components in all her work, primarily using the female form and portraiture as the medium, is her goal.  photo tumblr_m73dj7wSDq1r8bbqlo1_1280_zps68d08466.jpg  photo 90E0DA70D_zpsa0b2b37f.jpg

Much of my work is about transitions, whether it is a midlife juncture or coming of age as a universal truth. These paintings are decisions reflected and possibilities contemplated." - Terry Strickland  photo Untitled-1_zps3505675f.jpg  photo TerryStrickland_SelfPortraitWithBeard_oilonlinenoverpanel_20x16_zps278551ea.jpg  photo Terry_zpsa3ba26f5.jpg

Bottle Cap Art by Molly B. Right

 photo molly-b-right-bottle-caps4_zps02a6b4d0.jpg  photo 1_zps1a6d219b.jpg " The bottle cap portraits begin with a painted portrait, on a piece of sheet metal. The caps are then glued to the painting, in such a way that they overlap, like the scales of a snake. The bottle caps date from the 30′s to the 70′s and are considered collectable on their own. Particular attention is given to the craftsmanship, so that no traces of glue are visible. Transparent washes of glaze are often used to further define the image. Most of the portraits are 4′ x 5′ and weigh 60-70 pounds." - Molly B.
