Rita Carroll Solo Art Show at Bedford Landings B&B

Rita Carroll is having a showing of her art at Bedford Landings Bed & Breakfast.  If you have a chance make a trip to the B&B and see her works.  It's a beautiful drive and well worth the trip.

Rita's love of art began at an early age.  She enjoyed drawing all through school but had never thought of painting until her husband purchased a small set of oils for her; she was hooked.  She still loves oil but watercolors have become her chosen medium.

Rita has won many awards for her artwork and currently is with Art Visions Gallery and Studio in Westlake.  More of Rita's artwork can be viewed on her blog
