Molly O'Neill- Lally
Botanical Art

On Exhibit: Nov. 1 through Dec 27

Reception: Thursday, November 7
                       5:00-7:00 p.m.


Molly O’Neill-Lally’s experience with watercolors began many years ago with classes at the Washington Art Association where she studied with Arthur Getz, an internationally respected painter and illustrator. She has also taken classes in colored pencil and occasionally incorporates this medium into her paintings.

Molly’s work is botanical in nature. Each painting represents a single variety of flower and its special beauty. In summer, she uses live plants as models for her creations; in winter, she uses photographs, magazines, old art books and botanical studies as her reference.

She employs a dry brush watercolor technique upon smooth, hot pressed paper to produce a detailed representation of her subjects. Complementary mats and carefully constructed frames complete each piece.

Over the years Molly has donated her work to various fundraisers within the Litchfield Community including The Carley Fund, The Connecticut Special Wishes Fund, Litchfield Garden Club, OWL’s Festival of Trees and the Morris Land Trust. She has also exhibited her work at the Oliver Wolcott and Norfolk libraries.

25% of all art sales directly benefits the library in support of materials, services and programs.
