“I was told many years ago that the definition of ‘Inspired Art’ reflects the level of communication between what the artist created and how viewers respond. I am mindful of this with every painting I create. I focus on something unique in each of my subjects. That can simply mean the look in the eyes of a child or the way light enters the composition at just the right spot to illuminate and highlight a color or an entire palette of colors. I am inspired, and this is why I paint. That certain magical chemistry that happens when I stand in a front of a blank canvas and imagine my painting completed moves me. I will have it no other way.”
Carole Olson is our newest artist at the hotel. Her series of New Mexican Children will soon include a collection of Spanish boys and girls that we will add to this Native American group. It is a pleasure to represent her work at La Posada.
