Welcome to my family and art blog!

Take a look at how family time and creative time mix in the Olson household on our family blog. It turns out there is a lot of artistry to raising a family! Some of the pictures will be beautiful and some, not so much…but all our experiences together make life more colorful, more varied, and provide the inspiration for the art in the gallery. New this year, there will be art that reflects the speed of life at home: more quick sketches and crafts are appearing on the scene. These days my art is changing to match the tempo of toddlers and teenagers and it is a fun and difficult challenge! To all mommy artists out there, I say, keep making art…with your kids!
