“White tailed deer” oil by Vicky Combs-Snider
“I was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I was very blessed growing up and living in seven different states. After graduating in Kansas City, Missouri, I went on to college and majored in Art. In Kansas City, I showed in several art exhibits and taught oil painting for five years. After the passing of my mother, who was also a well-known artist in Arkansas, I lost my passion for painting.
I moved to Oregon, eleven years ago and took a job in sales, which allowed me to travel the back roads of Oregon, Washington, Utah, and Idaho. Through work and pleasure, I have been blessed to travel throughout all 50 states. Our country is a beautiful canvas, full of vibrant colors and majestic subject matter.
Since retiring to the Oregon coast and with the encouragement of my husband, am painting again. The passion I once had, painting with my mother, has returned.” Vicky Combs-Snider.
