Dorothy McGee Member Since May 2011 Artist Statement I have been creating art almost all of my life and it has evolved into a passion. My favorite medium is oil paint because it is so diverse and flexible in use. I'm always searching for new ideas and new ways to use old materials. The artists whom I most admire are VanGogh, Monet, Pollack, and O'Keeffe. My style varies, but is closest in description to abstract expressionism. Nature figures predominantly in my paintings and drawings as well as motion. I sometimes venture into realism only to prove to myself that I can, but I prefer the spontaneous act of moving the paint across a surface and observing the constant flow, even after the paint dries!
