Holiday Gift Ideas

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.

Western Maryland

My hand-signed greeting cards can be purchased at the Garrett County Arts Council.

I also have some original art, prints and cards on display at the gift shop inside Penn Alps, next to Spruce Forest Artisan Village in Grantsville.   

Online Purchases

Original art

Browse original art at my Artwork Archive gallery.

Please get in touch at rhyonke@gmail.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. 

Trout Prints

These trout prints make a great gift for your favorite angler or outdoors-person.

Fine Art America

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. 

Prints

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.  

Cards

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. 

Christmas Night Star

Trout Trio

I used to spend a fair amount of time fly fishing. From that pursuit, I created a series of work featuring fly fishing and fish. The trout below are three original pieces reproduced as lithographs.

These fish have been some of my most popular images as far as card sales and prints have gone. While updating this site, I realize that the trout slid to the back burner. So with no further adieu, I give you in order, Brook Trout, Brown Trout and Rainbows.

SEYMOUR SHOW SPECIAL

Purchase all three signed prints as a set for $99. They come un-matted, shipped in a tube, or you can pick them up at the Garrett County Arts Council. For more information or to purchase, click here.

Endless Source at the Casselman River

If you follow my work, you may notice that one place that shows up often in my work is the Casselman River Bridge. The river is a tributary of the Youghiogheny River. There is a lot of history surrounding the river and bridge.

The historic bridge was built in the early 1800s as part of the National Road and the area is now known formally as Casselman River Bridge State Park. This location is also known as Little Crossings. Located east of Grantsville near Spruce Forest Artisan Village, it’s a popular place with fly fisherman. Sightseers traveling along Route 40 often visit to take a look around.
