  Ms. Obrien, from Everett, paints in an expressionist style that packs a psychological wallop. She was Snohomish County Artist of the Year in 1997. She works in oil on panel, guoache on paper and acrylic on canvas. Her mealoncholy humans and animals, with enlarged heads and snake-like Olive Oyl arms, have profound personality despite their cartoony appearance. Ms. O'Brien's landscapes twist and writhe with an expressioninsm reminiscent of Thomas Hart Benton.Her subects have included couples on dates, landscapes, religious icons including various saints and a variety of animals in situations with other animals or with humans.
