Rodrica Tilley - Landscape Painter:

Visit my secluded woodland studio and garden and you will see small watercolors, plein air pastels and large pastel paintings. These paintings may be part of several different and on-going series:

The Tangled Garden Series has been vining its way around my studio for more than three decades. Some paintings are large. Some are tiny. Some are started and completed in the studio. Others are plein air works (completely painted on location in the garden). My love for all things horticultural is celebrated in these colorful paintings.

Other series I have "in the works" are:
Susquehanna River
Agricultural Architecture: Our Disappearing Barns
Backyards: Gardens & Wash Lines

My newest series is The Fifty State Plein Air Painting Project. I have painted a plein air pastel on location in 19 states so far. You can watch my progress on the blog.

I have been a professional artist for over 40 years since leaving Moore College of Art in Philadelphia. My work has been seen in eleven one-woman gallery shows and numerous group and museum exhibits. It is held widely in corporate and private collections. Two of my large pastel paintings received First Place Painting Prizes in the regional juried Images of Susquehanna County Exhibit in '04 & '06. I was invited for three years to participate in the NYC Central Park Paint Out as an invited signature member of the National Academy of Professional Plein Air Painters. In 2004 I was the first Artist in Residence at Salt Springs State Park. My pastel plein air paintings have been chosen twice by the Pennsylvania Environmental Council to be presented as awards for lifetime achievement. I achieved signature status in Pennsylvania En Plein Air Society as well as International Plein Air Painters and Landscape Artists International. I am a member of Pastel Society of America. I occasionally am invited or juried in to national plein air events around the country. My full color magazine illustrations appeared in magazines including Woman's Day and Horticulture.

On Monday, I will be painting a watercolor bouquet at 11am and a pastel painting at 2pm…hopefully out in the garden, weather permitting.

I look forward to your visit. My studio is located about 3 miles east of Montrose just off route 706. Turn on McCollum Road. My driveway is the second on the right. #681 McCollum RD. The studio is not wheelchair accessible and is open all year by appointment. 570-278-2479
