Mary Rose O’Connell, a lifelong resident of Massachusetts, is a classically trained artist working in several genres. She is primarily an oil painter with concentrations in portrait, landscape, marine and still life paintings. Her paintings and commission works are done in both oil and acrylic with a wide variety of options from gallery wrap to gilded framing. The paintings are often done from life and may also be done from high quality photographs and field studies when desired. In pursuit of her artistic training Mary Rose had many years of formal training in the Boston School tradition. Mary Rose’s work shows the benefit of a strong grounding in draftsmanship and design. This style of painting is done in natural light and is influenced by the beautiful colors of the Impressionists.
