Rita Norcross   Portraiture

Portraiture is one of our most enduring art forms and a favorite of mine.

There is a deep satisfaction in the study and reflection of an individual portrait, it expresses my enjoyment of people--one artistic journey at a time.

To create a piece of art is to suspend time, place and words--which I love to do.  The American painter, Robert Henri, wrote, "The object, which is in back of every true work of art, is the attainment of a state of being, a state of high functioning, a more than ordinary moment of existence."
