REVIEW: Crestview artist lets viewers interpret her work their way

Published: Tuesday, May 28, 2013 at 03:05 PM.

"These are paintings that are more experimental in nature," McShane said. "I put paint down and different materials, some kind of paper, and paint with it, and then figure out what to do with it.

"It's making a problem and then figuring out how to solve it. It's a lot like math, but with math there's only one right answer. With art there are many answers."

The viewer is part of the equation.

"Different people can get a whole different interpretation," McShane said. "I just like the painting to have a little mystery in it."
