Rodrica has had nine one-woman gallery exhibits, numerous awards, and support of a wide range of collectors. In 2007 she completed ‘Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days’, a self-directed project in southern Arizona. This series was painted entirely out of doors during one month in the high desert grasslands south of Tucson. During 2008 she is participating in two Plein Air Festivals in Wayne, Pa and Door County, WI.

Imaginative use of color marks the mature work of this northeastern Pennsylvania impressionist’s pastel paintings.
The excitement she feels looking at her surroundings is conveyed through the lines, layers and scumbles made on the paper by her pastel sticks. She looks for the incidental details that fully describe the depth and breadth of otherwise simple scenes. Her paintings are about clouds, grasses, reflections and atmosphere.
