Deep Creek 2014 Opens 

Today's a big day for Garrett County, Maryland, as they welcome the world for the 2014 ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships.  I painted this piece a while back, when the Adventure Sports Center International first opened.  I thought today would be a good day to post it here.

Our Town Theatre Christmas Market 

I'm pleased to be back at the Our Town Theatre's 7th Annual Christmas Market on December 7th at St. Peter's Catholic Church Parish Social Hall in Oakland, Maryland.  The event is part of Oakland's "A Great Small Town Christmas".  The event supports Our Town Theatre's Backstage, the scenery, costume and prop shop.   This is a great place to finish (or start) your holiday shopping with gifts from local artisans.  You'll also find great entertainment, food and I'm told Santa will be there as well.

Mountain Maryland Art Sale and Tour 

AstlogoThank you to everyone who stopped by last week during the first weekend of the 2013 Mountain Maryland Art Sale and Tour.  In case you missed it, you have another chance this weekend.  Come visit between 11am and 5 pm this coming Saturday and Sunday, October 26 and 27.




Many of my Sailing Series originals have sold so I tasked myself with working on some new images along this subject matter.  "Yahoo" expresses the thrill of running with the wind.  It will be displayed along with several other new sailing images at my studio tour this weekend in Garrett County, MD.
