My inspiration was color. As I walked around the canvas placing paint here and there, adding grids and marks, bridges and a distant city seemed to appear. I liked that, so I followed the direction my painting was taking me. Mostly palette knives were used. The painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished gray edges. It comes 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?”
