Welcome! I am Rita Thorp and I paint contemporary abstract art for art lovers to connect with their feelings, places and time thru my art.

Wearable Art! Literally, dress like my paintings. Christmas is only 8 weeks away friends. My dresses make classy and unique presents under the tree, perfect to wear over the holidays. Cruise season has begun and hot weather vacations. Check out some of my favorite paintings below that translate beautifully to these gorgeous slip dresses, feather light to wear in hot climates. They can be ordered above the knee or maxi length.

Indulge in these beautiful 100% polyester satin slip dresses inspired by some of my favorite paintings. These slip dresses are elegant and sophisticated to wear on a cruise for a special dinner or lounge pool side. I wore my dress to the art opening in September with a magenta leather jacket. Dressed up or casual, they look and feel great.

Machine washable delicate, choose white or black trim, choose fixed or adjustable straps. Send me an email via contact page to order.
