Catherine Kehoe posts a new video of painter Lois Dodd produced by Allen Baldwin on the occasion of the upcoming exhibition Lois Dodd: Catching the Light at The Portland Art Museum, on view from January 17, 2013 - April 3, 2013.

Dodd is interviewed in her studio about painting in Maine. She comments: "I think I'm more productive in Maine... because the distractions here are things in nature, the things you talk about, the things you notice, are things in nature… The things you're more apt to get involved with here are useable for me as a painter, so that just feeds into what I want to do."
