About Rob’s Art

Rob O’Dell was one of the fortunate ones. He loved what he did.


Looking at Rob O’Dell’s watercolors, you will feel as though you have entered a peaceful, timeless world. There is nothing contrived or artificial about his art. The past is celebrated. Time is preserved, and simplicity is found. Rob knew how to find beauty in the seemingly quiet rural life, in the slight rises and dips of the Midwestern landscape, in the nuances of color in an evening sky or in the patterns of light and shadow in a garden. His work reflects the way he lived his life—honestly, quietly, and joyfully.

Bringing over 50 years of experience to his craft, Rob has won numerous awards and exhibited his work around the world.
