Recently I posted some art that I’ve done around sailing on Deep Creek Lake. You can’t talk about this subject without discussing Gordon K. “Sandy” Douglass, who created the Flying Scot – the predominant sailboat on the lake.
I did this piece a while back. This weekend is the annual Sandy Douglass Regatta on the lake. Also, he was recently inducted into the National Sailing Hall of Fame. I thought it was a good time to post it.
We participated in racing Scots back in the eighties, and if you’ve been to my studio, you know that this vantage point on the lake offers a great view of the races. So, much of my subject matter over the years has been around this pursuit.
Several years ago, I did a series of paintings around vintage Deep Creek. A couple of the images are available in the Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County Gallery. Some originals have sold, but are still available as prints, cards, and other reproductions.
Every year during the tour, we like to offer some “show specials” in the way of either discounted prints, original art, or cards. It has varied from year to year, but it’s our way of thanking people for coming out. This year we have put together a virtual gallery of select original art featuring images from around the Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County area. All artwork featured in this gallery will be offered at 20% off the listed price. Also, we are offering free shipping within the continental United States.
Please send an email to email@example.com, letting us know which pieces you are interested in purchasing. Please put “Virtual Studio Tour Sale” in your email subject heading and include your shipping address in the email.
We will send you a secure electronic invoice that you can conveniently pay with a credit card. The invoice will reflect the 20% discount from the list price.
Once we receive payment, we ship your art via US Postal Priority Mail.
