A continual student of the arts, Marilyn Rose has been influenced by some of the best artists and teachers in America today.  Some noteworthy mentions include Ray Roberts, Gill Dellinger, Brian Blood, Susan Sarback, Camille Przewodek and Barry John Raybould.

Marilyn is affiliated with Oil Painters of America, California Art Club and is a signature member of the American Impressionist Society.  Her paintings have been featured in four published books including Capturing Radiant Light and Color in Oil and Soft Pastel 2007 by Susan Sarback and North Light Books.

Her home is the esteemed Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento.  She is well known locally, however, her work has been shown in over two dozen different art markets including Ireland, Texas, Chicago, Taos, Laguna Beach, Palm Desert, Santa Barbara, Pasadena and North Lake Tahoe.  Over 15 years as a gallery painter, she has developed a strong reputation and following in the Northern California Art community.

With such pedigree and hundreds of shows under her belt, one would think she should be better known.  Modestly, she admits she doesn’t promote her work enough.  True, that an artist is really more about production than promotion.

Her artist mother started her with the basics and Marilyn continually remained connected with her personal drawings.  Then with a solid career as a professional draftsman, she entered back into illustration at the request of customers asking for a rendering of their structures.

In her journey, she has travelled through a period of love for the French and California impressionistic methods in the tradition of John Singer Sargent and Joaquin Sorolla. Marilyn always enjoys plein air painting but desires the classical approach of placing people in everyday scenes.  She describes her work as also highly influenced by “painterly realism”.

Asked where she is moving to in her work, she mentions that she will be in the upcoming Thomas Nash portrait class in August hosted by Bobbi Baldwin.  “This probably will help me decide on my next direction,” she comments.

"Patience" is a 20x24 oil on linen and was painted in 2010
