Paint Snow Hill by Julie Riker

 Last week I participated in Paint Snow Hill, held in the charming town of Snow Hill, MD on the Eastern Shore.  It was a great event and fantastic area to paint with endless subject matter.  I found myself drawn to the many forgotten and decaying structures which conjured up feelings of sadness - but also mystery, and spoke to the power of time and nature over things of man.  I was honored to receive Artist's Choice for Best Body of Work as voted by my peers.
