Raitman Art Gallery (Vail/Breckenridge) showed work by DD LaRue and Rolinda at Aqua Art Miami 2016.
Rolinda uses an oil painting technique of her own devising that she calles "Bella Rotta." You can check out a great (and short) Youtube video where the artist explains the process HERE.
LaRue uses the doors from VWs in here work--well not ALL of her work but it is a reoccurring motif. These pieces brim with optimism; this is likely because they depict what appear to be happy, goofy dogs. What is more positive than a dog leaning out a window?
