More Info Art

Olive J. Coghlin (Walsh) one of the original founders of the 'Art in the Park' exhibitions in Stratford, Ontario, is currently living in Listowel. She was another student of the great Matthew F. Kousal, a virtuoso of the 'painting knife' technique. I believe she started painting in the mid-1960's, about 55 years ago.

She is a listed Canadian artist, archived with National Gallery of Ottawa and along with Peter Etril Snyder, was taught the use of Kousal's distinctive techniques.

Her subject matter is consistently beautiful, which is a delicate unveiling of the countryside around us. Many times there is a road that curves around a lake, river or field and we're left with a view of some lovely backwoods before us. This time we have another side to her talents, the mountains.

These are called the 'Three Sisters'. They are a trio of peaks near Canmore, Alberta, Canada. They are known individually as Big Sister (Faith), Middle Sister (Charity) and Little Sister (Hope). They were named in 1883. I have owned paintings by other artists of these mountains and hers are one of the best.

In her own words: "Each painting is an original composition of a place visited. If you love what you are doing, it usually shows. We have such a beautiful country, it’s a challenge to capture it on canvas. It takes observation, practise, thought and previous experience to get what you see, into a painting."
-Olive Coghlin
