March-April 2010, I intend to draw a different contemporary artist every day.

Today’s artist is American Rita Flores (RitaFlo on flickr). Rita is a painter in acrylics and pixels, and expert digital image manipulator, applying varied effects from multiple apps on her iPhone to obtain her desired results. Her subject matter ranges from small town landscapes to portraits, figures, and montages – looks like she can get interesting results no matter where she turns her attention.

Rita’s flickr imagestream is here.:

And her blog is here:

Photos of Rita and other artists’ portraits of her can be seen here:…

Julia KayWe’re having a Portrait Party on flickr – more than 100 artists drawing each other! Here’s Rita’s portrait of me from the party. If you’re an artist who’d like to draw/paint other flickr artists, please join the Portrait Party at:
