In the summer of 2020, Kevin O. O’Leaigh, then the CEO of a private equity firm called O’Brien Partners, had a meeting with a prominent oil painter, who, O’Learys chief of staff said, asked the O’Donnell brothers to come in and do a portrait for him.
“I was like, ‘Okay, but how would we do it?'” said O’Alessio, who now heads the Ollens’ oil painting firm, Olles Painting Gallery.
“And they’re like, “Oh, we’ll do it by email.’
“In the email, OLeary explained the process in detail, describing it as “taking the viewer into a different place, where they feel something different than they would have when you are in front of the camera.
“The painting ended up being the subject of a Vanity Fair profile by O’Reilly’s former colleague Dana Milbank, which appeared in May 2021.
“There was this real immediacy of it, and there was a sense of, wow, it’s happening.” “
It was like we were at the beginning of the oil painting industry, but this time we were doing it digitally,” O’Keefe said.

“The irony of the whole thing is that in that story, we were actually painting and painting and then we’re going back to the studio and we’re just doing it,” Ollesy said.
And there was this feeling, as well, that we were going back and forth with them and doing it.
And it was a really exciting moment for me, and it really changed my relationship with Ollyas.
It was really transformative.
And then I realized, Wow, this is the future.
I had been watching them work for so long.
And now I had a new relationship with this artist.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, OBrien Partners president and CEO Kevin Ollay said that he had worked with O’Laverty before. “
They’re definitely helping to build my art portfolio,” Olery said.

OLE’S PICTURE, OLEYS ARTISTS, AND THE OLLIE FAMILY’S NEW PRIVATE INDUSTRY The OLLIES’ painting of oil paintings has been a major part of OLLIAMS and OLAWANNE’s careers.
OLA WHARLEY: “There’s a little bit of a rivalry in the family.”
OLEY: OLLERY: I just think that they’re the ones who are going to have to do a lot of the work, to be able to have all these artists around.
I think they’re doing a great job of building a lot on that.
OLEMY: We’re very supportive.
I mean, you know, I have no problem with it.
ONAULIO: I think that the fact that they had a portrait is an honor, and I think we can be proud of them for that.
“We want to work with people that we think have an artistic heart,” OLAHANNE: I like that they can come in with ideas, and have the same energy that we have.
OLCIEN: And we know we can trust them.
And so, it was important for us to have that relationship with them, to have them in our lives, and to feel comfortable.
“That’s the thing that’s really important to me,” OLLARY said.
OOLLEY: And I think, for me personally, it feels like we’ve been together for a very long time.
“You know, Kevin and I are always really happy to see each other.
And Kevin always has a good laugh and I always have a good time.”
OHLIE: I love the fact they’re here.
And I like the fact we’re a part of this new generation, and we
