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.

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.

Swallow Falls

I recently had an inquiry about work inspired by Swallow Falls State Park. All of the paintings that I created around this subject matter have sold, so I thought it was time to create a few new ones. Here is the first of two, Runoff.
