About The Artist:
Lyn Snow was my mother, who lived and painted in South Thomaston, Maine. She was known for the clean lyrical approach she brought to her watercolors. She captured and painted the mood and essence of flowers; the elegance and romance of a wedding bouquet, the charm of wildflowers and the drama of irises. Individually or in the collection, her work gained national recognition. Her originals and limited and open edition prints have been shown widely at fine art shows, numerous local and regional galleries both in the U.S. and internationally. Lyn collected many awards over the many decades she painted. World-renowned artist Andrew Wyeth once visited the Gallery, and after watching Lyn paint, remarked: “you have great technique”. What started as a small art studio grew into a sprawling family business. The old farmhouse doubled in size to incorporate a large and busy studio and frame shop. For many years Lyn had her own galleries in Portland and Rockland, Maine. Over the years she & her husband Jack reduced (and then eliminated) traveling to the art shows, and then closed the Portland store. She officially retired on Columbus Day 2013, the final day of the Rockland store. Her plan was to be a full-time grandmother. In November of 2013, Lyn was bitten by a tick carrying the Powassan Virus, thus passing away in December of this same year. While she is missed by family, friends and art collectors, her work is still available to grace the walls of those who enjoy her work.
