    Heartwarming Note from a Member Artist, Jeannie Snider

    We're always hoping that PaintingContest.Org will help artists promote their art. Today we received a very nice email from member artist Jeannie Snider, who wrote:

    "I do really appreciate Bill Cramer & Laurie Barmore for choosing my painting Along the River for August 2018 Best of Show...

    And a big thank you to Nicole Mone' and Lisa Mann for choosing my painting Empty Red Can as a Finalist for September 2018...

    And a big thank you to Sara Linda Poly and Tom Shropshire for choosing my painting Best Friends for October 2018 Finalist...

    Friends kept saying I should sell my paintings or show my paintings, but until I won a couple of these competitions, I had no real idea I was good enough to win anything. Since then, I have sold a few paintings, I have had a gallery exhibition and another coming up in January 2020. I have also had a request to support another gallery next year in Sedona, Arizona. So really, thank you so very much." — Jeannie Snider
