Landscape Painter Extraordinaire

I cannot get enough of Lois Dodd’s paintings! Here are some more of them. These images are from Hyperallergic’s article, “Beer with a Painter.” (I first introduced the artist here.)

Dodd’s cow parsnip painting makes me think of the works of Jamaican painter, John Dunkley, and also of Alice in Wonderland. I have a few sketches of cow parsnips in one of my early Bay Area nature journals. These plants are on many of the Mid-Peninsula Regional Open Space’s lands. They will probably show up in some of my future paintings.

  1. Wow! Her cow parsnip painting is really gorgeous. It’s hard to take my eyes away from it once I start looking at it, there’s just so much going on that keeps me engaged in the most delightful way. Her brush strokes are amazing, and what a palette! The same can be said for\ her self-portrait, which really is even more engaging. Its overlapping focal fields create an amazingly real feeling of actual distance and depth. Much as I love the cow parsnip, her self-portrait is the work of a master. Thanks for sharing her work.
