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.
I’ve been thinking about my Garrett County friends lately, as they are having a cold and snowy weather. No matter how you feel about wintry weather, it makes for good subject matter.
This is a small original that I created for a Christmas card several years back. The scenes is from Turkey Neck Road, near my home in the area. The original is not for sale, but you can get fine art prints, cards and other items at Fine Art America.
Winter has arrived in the Northeast. While I’m enjoying warmer weather now, winter scenes have always been something I enjoyed painting. Queen Bee tells me that “nobody wants to see snow,” but I tend to think otherwise. What do you think?
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.
