Cards – Southwest Set


Five pen and ink drawings of iconic southwest pueblo and adobe scenes by Orrin Olson, my father. Our family lived in Albuquerque for several years. My brother, Marty Olson, was born there and our family (and as do many people from this area) love the southwest and its many contrasts to our part of the country. These drawings have not been previously offered as note cards and were a gift to me. I thought I should share these with others.

5 cards of southwestern scenes, envelopes included. No text, blank inside.

Size: approx. 5.5 x 4.75″

These cards represent a retrospective featuring the pen and ink drawings by my father, Orrin M. Olson, whose work as a local artist spanned approximately a quarter century. This he did in addition to his day job as Display Manager for Weaver’s Department Store from 1957 – 1990. Dad loved Lawrence, and Lawrence loved him. Over 12 years ago, his cards were distributed by my mother, Betty Olson, assisted by my brother, Marty Olson, and were quite popular. The effort dwindled upon Mom’s death. They are being offered once again, and because so much of Dad’s artwork was for his own pleasure and/or marketed only as prints, now for the first time I am producing note cards to be debuted this year at Pendleton’s Holiday Open House.
