Anita Rodriguez is inspired by the quiet and sometimes overlooked spaces in nature, especially near water. Like the chance to regain one’s composure, these areas are often filled with a kind of colorful and textured peace that reminds her of God’s presence. She usually begins with one of her own photographs, then chooses either acrylic or watercolor paint to pursue what originally captured my attention.
Anita was born and raised in southern California, where serene landscape was often difficult to find! Since 2007, she’s been in Kentucky, where such landscape abounds and the experience of the four seasons has changed her concept of what quiet, overlooked spaces might look like.
