Beautiful Bird Paintings By Lori McNee

"I would like to paint the way a bird sings"

My broad spectrum of work includes still life, landscape and plein air painting. In 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.

Often metaphorical paintings, they echo the delicate balance between nature and man. The great master artists such as Rembrandt, Rubins, and the Dutch and Flemish painters have influenced my work.

Whether is be landscape or still life painting, my goal is to create a painting that captures a sense of mystery, beauty and drama. I respond to the effects of color, light or atmosphere on the subject. Much of what I paint is connected to my past.
