Mountain Maryland Studio and Tour 

If you're in Western Maryland this coming weekend, make sure you take time to attend the Mountain Maryland Studio Tour, sponsored by the Allegany Arts Council. My studio is not on the tour this year, as I had other commitments, but I encourage you to visit the talented artists in the area.    If you were planning on visiting the studio this year, and would like to set up an appointment to visit later this fall,  please contact me at rhyonke@gmail.com.   

This is a great chance to visit with Western Maryland artists where they live and work, learn about their techniques and purchase some quality local art.  A guidebook for the event, which describes the artists’ work and provides a map and directions to their locations is available at the Allegany Arts Council at 9 N. Centre St., Cumberland or you can access the information at www.artsaleandtour.com. For more information, call 301-777-2787.

Makeshift Studio 

I find myself on the go a lot, and always seem to be able to put together a makeshift studio.  The house we stayed in last week provided beach chairs that actually turned out to be a perfect chair for working, complete with built it pockets and an attached side table.  The chair also easily folds for transport.  Not so fancy, but the box was also a useful addition to my work space as well.

Old Cabin Lodge 

I recently received a reminder from the Garrett County Chamber of Commerce that they'll be celebrating the 91st anniversary of Deep Creek Lake next month.  It got me to organizing my Deep Creek Lake subject matter, and I found "Old Cabin Lodge".  This was completed a while back when I was working on an Old Deep Creek series.  Most of the originals have sold, but I still have this one.

Seemingly Random, But Not.

Poolside is another one that appears to be a random work, but actually this one was done in a series during a visit to South Carolina and is part of my Coastal collection.
