"The Town Of Mitford" is a 22X30" painting I did after listening to Jan Karon's books, "The Mitford Series". I like to listen to audio books while I paint. This series about an Episcopal priest, named Father Tim, and his dog Barnabas, a boy named Dooley and the delightful neighbor named Cynthia captured my heart! Her description of the fictious town, and the local residents was so enthralling I just had to paint my vision of Mitford. I have won a couple of ribbbons with this painting and have also reduced it for greeting cards. I sent a 11"X14" copy to Miss Karon for Valentines Day that year and received a nice Thank You from her and her Secretary.
Hello, my name is Marlynne Joy Snare (pronounced Marilyn) and I am really excited to be jumping into this new world of "blogging". I call myself a "Folk Artist" and enjoy creating with fabric, paint, wood and all types of natural materials. It will be fun to share some of these inside and outside the house projects with you too!
