2 Artscene LEAVING an

IMPRESSION

Local artist teaches impressionistic painting at Allied Arts Story and photos by Michelle Le

L

ocal impressionist artist Kristen Olson recently conducted a “Paint the Garden” workshop at Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park, where her “Classic California” landscapes are on exhibit through March. Painters, from beginners to advance, worked in the guild’s outdoor gardens in the style of the Impressionists. Inspired by her grandmother, Ms. Olson has been painting since she was a child. At school, she says, “kids were asking me to draw them a horse and I would give (the pictures) away.” Her parents, who were musicians, wanted her to become a violinist. Instead, she followed her passion for painting. She was introduced to California landscapes when she visited her grandmother in Auburn, California. Her grandmother would take her on hikes in the Sierra foothills, and they would sketch and paint together. Studying music and playing musical instruments influenced how she sees rhythm in nature, she says. “Music, nature and art are (as) alike as they are different,” she says. One sees “rhythm in the way the breeze blows across water, the way things grow, how trees are aligned, and how clouds move.” See ARTIST, page 23

ARTIST

Continued from page 21

The artist, she says, has to “be a silent observer of nature to take it all in and transfer it to paint.” Ms. Olson, who lived in Hawaii for 21 years, moved to Palo Alto a year ago. A local artist introduced her to Portola Pastures ranch on Arastradero Road and it has become one of the most inspiring landscapes for her, she says. She describes the area as tranquil, majestic and stately. Comparing her work in Hawaii with that in California, she says her palette is now “much warmer; the scenes are less repetitive.” She has painted people, but prefers landscapes. “When communicating with people, it’s easy to feel emotion, and it’s harder with something with a tree or landscape,” she says. “You have to see the world differently. You have to isolate yourself in order to see beauty.” Local realist painter Tara Norwood, who takes classes

Protests against the proposed rate increase must be submitted in writing and signed by the property owner, must identify the owner(s) of the property for which the protest is entered, and must include the property address and assessor’s parcel number (APN).

from Ms. Olson, says she “has a wonderful way of explaining things that really breaks down the fundamental components of painting. For me, where I was, it was a blessing to find this class and her teaching, and now I am a devotee.” Ms. Olson’s work has “a liveliness and character that is unique,” says Ms. Norwood, “They’re not photo-realist. They are very loose and expressive. That’s something I want more in my work.” A

Free tours of the historic Fremont Older “Woodhills” home and garden will be conducted Sunday, April 14. The home is located in the Fremont Older Open Space Preserve on the urban fringe of Cupertino and Saratoga. In 1914, Fremont Older, an unconventional newspaper editor, and his wife, Cora, an author and historian, moved into the home designed by architect Frank Delos Wolfe. The Olders hosted many literary and political guests in their home, including Jack London and Carl Sandburg. In 1975, the Midpeninsula Open Space District purchased the property and the deteriorating house was scheduled for demolition. Newspaper publishers Mort and Elaine Levine wanted to see the journalistic legacy of Fremont Older and “Woodhills” preserved. They were granted a long-term lease and have restored the house and re-designed the grounds with drought-tolerant and native landscaping. The Levines, former owners of the Almanac, still live at “Woodhills” and the home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Reservations for the annual tour are required and accepted on a first-come, first-served basis by calling the district office at 691-2153.
