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.
It’s hard to think about summer, but it will be here before we know it.
Save the Date!
Please save the date for the weekend of July 22nd and 23rd, 2023, for the annual Garrett County Artist Studio Tour. The Studio Tour allows you to meet and greet with the talented artists in and around Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County in their studios.
One of my favorite events of the year, my studio will be open and ready with new art.
Below is a sneak peek at an untitled piece that might be on view, provided it does not find a new home beforehand.
Stay tuned to this website and my social media for more details over the coming months.
Thank you to everyone who stopped out during the Garrett County Arts Council Artist Studio Tour! It was great to open the studio up again to the public. Whether you came to browse or purchase art, it was great to see you all. We sold work that hadn’t even made it to the website yet, which is always a good thing. Below is By the Mark, which found its way to a new home.
It seems like everyone is getting into the holiday spirit early this year. If you’re in that mode and are interested in purchasing original art, cards or prints for the holidays, here is everything you need to know.
New for 2020
New for this year, I’m offering gift certificates. Gift certificates can be used towards any original art, prints or cards that are purchased directly from me. They are not able to be used for purchases through the Garrett County Arts Council, Fine Art America or independent retailers.
Please get in touch at email@example.com if you’re thinking about a purchase for the holidays. We will be shipping original art out the week of December 7th, so plan now if you’d like to have something in time for gift giving.
Much of my work is now posted at my Fine Art America site, and all of it is available for purchase in prints and cards.
The high quality prints come in up to 15 different sizes and you can customize them with hundreds of mat and framing options. The site allows you to sort through a variety of mats and frames, previewing your image with your selected choices. The prints also arrive framed with the supplies that you will need to mount them onto your wall.
While all of the images are available to print as cards, I set up a Christmas Card gallery, featuring cards like “Santa”, for easier holiday card browsing. The card size is 5″x 7″ and they include a white envelope. You can imprint a custom message inside the card, which I think is a nice feature. When you click on the greeting card, make sure you choose the drop down box to indicate your quantity of cards, as the price drastically reduces the more cards that you buy.
You can find information regarding Fine Art America shipping here. As with any holiday gift, I would recommend you get started with your plans sooner rather than later.
Other fun products.
Fine Art America also offers other fun ideas for gifting like phone cases, yoga mats and tote bags.
Thank you in advance if you’re considering a purchase. It is always an honor and I appreciate your business.
