Bess Rodriguez – Artist
At less than two years of age, Bess Rodriguez began to draw…in color. Her parents encouraged her innate interest in art. In high school, she was fortunate to have a gifted art teacher who further whetted her appetite for art, specifically for painting. Bess began painting in earnest in college and spent a summer in Brittany, France in 1980 where her keen interest in plein-air painting developed. Wherever she has lived, she has always found an art teacher from whom she gleaned and extracted “golden nuggets” of wisdom and culled all these together, along with personal and practical experiences to develop a unique and eclectic form of expressionism.
I love this woman’s paintings – check out her work and profile here.
