Working Boats and Waterways

The subject matter in my Working Boats and Waterways collection of art ranges from commercial fishing vessels to boats that ferry supplies along the seaboard and inland waterways.  I recently organized much of this work in a new gallery, which you can view here. Included here are a few examples that illustrate the scope of vessels I like to paint.

Lowcountry Inspiration

This year, the family gathered on Hilton Head Island to celebrate Christmas. The first part of the week was rainy, as much of the southeast was right before the holiday. Thankfully, the second half of the week cleared up, and we were able to get some beach and golf time in.

This area of the country has provided a lot of subject matter from my paintings, from coastal scenes to wildlife and working boats.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

If you are interested in purchasing original art, cards or prints for the holidays, here is everything you need to know.  

Western Maryland

My original art, prints and hand-signed 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

Original art can be purchased directly from me.  Please get in touch at rhyonke@gmail.com if you’re thinking about a purchase for the holidays.  Please contact me with any questions about any work.  Or, if you saw something at my studio but can’t find it online, get in touch and I can see if the painting is still available.  I will be shipping original art out of my studio the week of December 1st, so plan now if you’d like to have something in time for gift giving. 

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″x7″ 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. 

Thank you in advance if you’re considering a purchase.  It is always an honor and I appreciate your business.
