HISTORY: Prior to his work in miniature art, Olszewski’s artistic foundation was laid during his early years of painting. A small group of paintings still exists today from this early period and only a handful will be released in a print format. To commemorate this exhibit, “Ocean Drive – 101 North” has been selected to represent Robert’s early painting years. The painting depicts the freedom of youth, four girls in a convertible, hair blowing making their way up the coast.
In contrast, work is summed up by the black engine, going in the opposite direction. The natural contrast of work and play is also brought into focus by the use of color opposites – black for the engine and white for the convertible. The painting was completed in the spring of 1975 and was Robert’s final work after 15 years of painting.
