There is a long history of sailing on Deep Creek Lake. There is a Flying Scot factory in nearby Oakland, Maryland and the Deep Creek Yacht Racing Association runs races on the southern end of the lake.
We participated in racing Scots back in the eighties, and if you’ve been to my studio, you know that this vantage point on the lake offers a great view of the races. So, much of my subject matter over the years has been around this pursuit.
Below is the newest work featuring sailing.
I’ve got a couple of other in the works.
The sailboat paintings tend to sell quickly. There are a few available in the Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County Sale Gallery.
Many popular sailing images are still available in prints, cards, and other fun reproductions (like phone cases and yes face masks!) at Fine Art America.
There is nothing quite like watching the boats head down the lake, spinnakers flying. You can find them racing on Saturday and Sunday afternoons through the summer season.
