My inspiration comes from portals, gates in any structure that lets a person enter or exit. I wanted to give the appearance of dreamy and calmness. There is a bit of modeling paste to give some texture and markings. It is finished with a thin matte varnish. The sides are painted a light aqua. The painting is wired and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Jodi

Seventeen years ago, Jodi Dann seized the opportunity to become a full-time painter. Today, her paintings read like hazy memories of imagined faraway places. The compositions are abstract, but possess strong architectural elements, recalling bridges, arches, and doorways. Each piece retains an overall sense of place without prescribing a location, allowing the viewer to form an individualized connection with the work. Jodi paints from her cozy studio on her property in Oregon while listening to jazz or French music. She doesn’t feel the need to strive for perfection in her work. “Life isn’t perfect,” says Jodi. “Why force a painting to be?”
