This one is 3'x4' on canvas and currently without a name.  I'm open to suggestions.

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
2355 Turkey Neck Road
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.


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.
