Mountain Maryland by Julie Riker

Last week I painted in Cumberland, MD for the Mountain Maryland plein air event. It was my first time visiting this area.  I loved the steep hilly town and the rural outlying areas.  Much of this rural area is economically depressed which is sad to see, but makes for great painting subjects.  I had the opportunity to paint in an abandoned silk mill in Lanaconing which closed in 1957 and was left intact.
