“What Was I Thinking?” is the result of McGee’s two-year study of color, texture, and form. Working in acrylic, often on a large scale, her bold, painterly brushwork and depth of field have an impact both striking and meditative. She says she is often asked what she was thinking while working on a painting.
“Sometimes I have no memory of how it all came together,” she says. “That might sound odd, but I am very intuitive when I paint. I become totally immersed in the colors, textures, and form as they mix and change before my eyes. Sometimes a painting takes only a few days, while others take months; but is it only when my eye is satisfied that I can put my brush down and say it is finished. I’m always moved when others tell me about things they see in my paintings that I never intended.”
McGee has caught the interest of collectors, and her work can be found in corporate conference rooms, lobbies, and private homes. Most are in the DC area, but some also in PA, MI, NC, OR, New York, Chicago, and London.
