24 Days! 24 Reasons! 

Only twenty four more days until the 12th Annual Mountain Maryland Art Sale and Tour.  I thought it would be a fun idea to give you twenty four reasons why you should plan on taking the tour.

Reason #1:  You have two weekends to take the tour.  I know you're all busy.  Scheduled for the weekends of October 20-21 and 27-28, the dates allow you to fit this into your schedule.  Hours are 11am - 5pm each day.   Pick one weekend and take a turbo tour of Garrett and Allegany County..or break it up into a more leisurely trip over two weekends.

"Deep Creek Lake" on Canvas 

While I paint a lot of scenes around Garrett County, it seems that I haven't done much this year as far as scenes of the lake go.  This one is the view of Deep Creek Lake from my studio.  It's a watercolor on canvas and measures 36"x24".
