Color was my inspiration. As I worked with this piece, interesting shapes appeared. I wanted to keep parts with large areas of color to rest your eyes. This painting is on gallery wrapped canvas with warm ochre edges. It comes lightly varnished and ready to hang.
In 1999, 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 a variety of music on Pandora. 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?”
