Calling all dog lovers...and cat and bird and snake lovers! (Ok, maybe not snake lovers...) Jodi Manca is a painter specializing in pet portraits in tempera, acrylic, oils and print who is inspired mostly by color. Jodi told us, "I love the emotional effects color can produce and enjoy exploring that. When it comes to the dog portraits, it's all about emotion!' As a pet owner herself, she says it's the emotion in the eyes that draws her to paint them. She likes to see if she can capture their individual personalities. (We'd say she captured it in the face of this beagle!)
Jodi loves the diversity of a flea, and thinks a flea market is like traveling the world--something to discover around every corner! See Jodi's art in our corner of the world at The Providence Flea on June 23, July 21 and August 25!
