Artist Statement – Jannene Behl
I adore painting the extraordinary local landscapes and sharing my enthusiasm through my teaching. I am pleased when a viewer can “walk into the painting”. They are excited to be there, as I feel my work reflects a mood with which viewers are comfortable and at peace.
I emphasize the importance of Compositional Value, the balance of warm and cool color, Temperature and Tonal Value while maintaining focus on the Area of Interest.
I paint and teach in beautiful Ojai at the studio of Burt Collins, my 17 year friend and mentor.
