Art at Crossroads
An exhibit of oil paintings

Karen Neil McKean
My two dimensional medium is oil painting. The beauty of nature provides the inspiration for my paintings, thus my work tends to be representational. My interests, styles and abilities are rather wide ranging from impressionistic to almost photorealism. I like to paint interpretive landscapes often adding some ﬁgurative elements. I also enjoy painting horses, animals and portraits. My paintings feature qualities of brightness and light effects. I have often been called a colorist. I do believe that good art pays homage to beauty and expresses skill. I hope my art makes people smile, feel uplifted and inspired. For me, making art is an expression of my soul and a way of expressing admiration to the exquisiteness of the Creation.
