Seeing the light. Feeling the mood. Capturing emotion.
That’s what painting is to me. Being sensitive to the scene means sensing more than the view. It’s feeling the warm or chill breeze in the air and listening to the sounds that surround me as the scene unfolds in my field study. I am free to let my intuition speak in the field studies that I review later in my studio. When creating larger pieces with their own character, the inspiration of light and nature comes through. Nature and Art -
One passion fuels the other.
My work is exhibited several times a year. Events are shown on my website, www.RitaRie.com and here through the PSGC where I am a signature member and active past president. My studio is in Somis, California. Thanks for your interest. I can be reached at Donna@ritarie.com.
