Bird Art by Vivian Olsen

Vivian Olsen is exhibiting some of her new Bird paintings at Alleda Real Estate offices during the month of June. There is an Artists’s Reception on First Friday June 3 at 5:30 - 9 PM at 25 NW Minnesota; if you can’t make that date, the exhibit will be on display for the entire month. Vivian is well known for her lively portraits of birds and other animals that inhabit Central Oregon and beyond. Most of her paintings are done with oils but she paints with pastel and acrylic also. Her work is recognizable by her use of strong color and contrast and the realistic rendering of her subjects.
