This book features 80 pages of recent (2010-2011) naturescape oil abstractions. Stylized acrylic florals also appear here.
The energy is vibrant, up-beat, textured, and full of light. McCray's work complements both traditional and contemporary styles as well as residential and corporate settings.
Her paintings appear in galleries, healing facilities, and on television and movie sets.
Ann Parks McCray lives and works in Wilmington, North Carolina, where she enjoys ocean, rivers, trees, lakes, water birds, blooming flowers--everything Mother Nature has to offer. Nature is often the focus of her paintings, poetry, and photography--and so, of her books. Her work is designed to inspire, calm, and restore. McCray in her own words: "We all tiptoe along a delicate path as we attempt further self-definition through self-expression. Thank you for marking this trail with me."
