Rita Sklar's Profile
Sklar’s recent body of works builds on her ongoing exploration of urban and natural landscapes using watercolors and mixed media. Sklar skillfully juggles organic and geometric forms, transparent and opaque paint - all held together by a basic abstract underlying shape. It is this intricate dance, rendered in strong color and value, which produces her exciting paintings.
She has attended workshops led by nationally known artists and trained with a watercolor master in Madrid. She draws inspiration from her life in the multi-cultural Bay Area, rich also with wild birds and extensive parks.
Rita Sklar is an award-winning artist. Sklar’s works are in private collections across the country and in Europe.
