Weekly Studio Sessions 

Are you looking to work on your watercolor technique this summer? I'm offering weekly drop-in classes again this year in my Turkey Neck Studio at Deep Creek Lake.  Sessions are on Friday mornings from 10 am til noon.  

These are working sessions with an opportunity for us to paint alongside each other while we discuss various topics and try new techniques. Artists of all levels are invited to attend. Participants are free to drop in for any or all classes.




Space is limited, so please call or email at least 24 hours in advance to reserve a spot.

Deep Creek Lake, MD

Swanton, MD 21561
Friday Mornings, 10am - 12 noon 
$20 per session payable by cash or check at the start of each session. 

If possible, please bring your regular painting supplies. If you do not have supplies, but would like to get started with your own, I do have small kits available for purchase at the studio.


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.

"Moonshine" is another piece on wood that I finished up early this summer.  It's found an owner and is currently en route to it's new home on the West Coast.
