Elliot O’Hara was a self-taught artist, teacher, world traveler, and avid tourist.  Throughout the course of his career, O’Hara authored six instructional books on watercolor,  ran the first successful watercolor school in the United States, and produced 24 art instructional films for Encyclopedia Britannica.  O’Hara traveled throughout the  Pacific Rim region beginning in the the 1930s. This geological area, known as the Ring of Fire, follows the 25,000-mile perimeter of the Pacific Ocean and is home to 90 percent of the world’s earthquakes.  O’Hara’s 1939 paintings of Hawaii depict a much calmer, exotic and tranquil view than the recent images of fire, molten lava flows and destruction from the Kilauea Volcano.

Continuing with the teaching of Josef Albers and the Bauhaus’ creed “less is more,” Rogers seeks color interaction using a limited palette.  Light affects our perception of color in all painting, but in Roger’s luminous, glowing paintings the light is active from within the painter layers, energizing her glorious colors with an ever-changing liveliness.
