Artist’s Statement

 

“Often metaphorical, my paintings echo the delicate balance between nature and man. My broad spectrum of work includes still life, nature, landscape and plein air paintings in oil and encaustic wax. When out painting in the field, Mother Nature is in charge. However when painting a still life, I am able to create my own small universe. These elegant arrangements are a juxtaposition of nature-made and man-made objects and most always include birds. Whether it is a landscape, still life, or encaustic painting, I respond to the effects of color, light and atmosphere on the subject. Much of what I paint is connected to my past.”  ~Lori McNee
