Trout Season

Trout stocking in Garrett County, Maryland, is an annual event where trout are released into local streams and rivers to supplement the natural population of trout and provide recreational fishing opportunities for anglers. The subject matter around fly fishing has always been one of my favorites.

Garrett County has several popular trout fishing destinations, including the Savage River, the North Branch Potomac River, and the Youghiogheny River. The Maryland DNR regularly stocks these rivers and streams with rainbow, brown, and brook trout during the spring and fall. However, I’ve read they are stocked with mostly rainbow and golden trout this year.

Three of the most popular images over the years are what I refer to as the “trout trio”.

While I sold the originals several years ago, I still sell prints of the images directly from my studio or here on Fine Art America.

Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing the trio.

Studio Tour Weekend – July 23 & 24

The 2022 Garrett County Artist Studio Tour is a week from today – the weekend of July 23 and 24th.

Visit me at my studio, open from 11 am to 5 pm on both days.  The tour book uses handy QR codes to help you navigate from stop to stop.

Please stop by to see new art and say hello. I look forward to seeing you!

If you’re unable to make next weekend’s event, but would like to check out the new art, I’d be happy to set up another viewing time for you. You can contact me here.

Below is my profile page in the tour book, along with the QR code. Thank you to curlyred for designing the brochure for The Council.


After putting a few paintings of Garrett County waterfalls on paper, I decided to turn to canvas and came up with Wings. This painting is one of the last pieces completed this year in my Florida studio. It’s packed and ready to head north with me soon.
