I recently discovered the oil paintings of east coast artist, Allie Snyder, and I'm loving her work. Her gorgeous studio is located in a converted barn in Southern Maryland, along the Potomac River, and her natural surroundings inspire her to paint. I love to imagine how she spends all her time in this idyllic setting, perched in a light-filled barn loft, painting glimpses from the natural scenes around her. It seems like such a peaceful place. And, each one of Allie's paintings feature soft subtle hues that can only be drawn from nature itself (I personally love the abstract landscapes). Here are some images from Allie's studio:
Her passion has fueled a growing business and blog called Amaryllis Truth where she writes about country living and sells her oil paintings. Here is Allie at a recent gallery showing (how adorable is she?):
Bookmark her store. She updates it regularly with new work, and if you're looking for that perfect piece, you might just want to check here first. Here are some of my favorite pieces that Allie has available right now:
