Flowers are my inspiration.
Flowers are Rita’s preferred subjects and provide her with a virtual limitless palette of color. She prefers to paint with oils using bold, rich colors and utilizes the impasto technique to create an almost three-dimensional effect to her artwork. Rita’s paintings reflect her vision of nature and she hopes to spread beauty and happiness through her art.
Born in San Francisco and having traveled much of the world as the daughter of a military veteran, Rita feels very fortunate to have been exposed to the beautiful natural scenery of the Bavarian forests, the Mediterranean coast, the botanical beauty of the Hawaiian Islands and lush Puerto Rican tropics all which inspired her earlier and more recent floral pieces.
