Artist StatementThe longer I paint, the more amazed I am at how beautiful the world is.
Abigail McBride is an American Impressionst oil painter and portrait artist. Her work is grounded in the present as a contemporary interpretation of genre painting born of a humble appreciation for beauty found in everyday life.
While a consummate Cape School colorist, the draftsmanship in her work is born of an academic interest in the portrait and figure. These technical concerns are the support and language for sharing her specific vision.
