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.

Its Autumn Glory Weekend in Garrett County, Maryland. Whether you can visit Deep Creek Lake or the Oakland Arts & Entertainment District this weekend or not, you can view SEYMOUR, a virtual artist marketplace.
Featuring Garrett County Artists
SEYMOUR, at www.seymourart.org, features the work of over twenty artists from the area. If you’re in town, they have a public art unveiling in the Oakland A&E District, where artists pair up with local businesses. Read more about this virtual marketplace here.
Earlier this summer, I posted about sailing on Deep Creek Lake and inspiration for my sailboat painting. If you ever wanted to learn more about this group of ardent sailors, an excellent place to start is Ellen Tran’s weekly article in The Garrett County Republican. Ellen reports the weekly race and sailing activity, providing enough detail and photos to feel like you’re almost there. Her latest Sailing the Best View is a good one. Enjoy.

SEYMOUR is a virtual marketplace held in conjunction with Garrett County and Deep Creek Lake’s annual Autumn Glory Festival. The marketplace goes live on October 7th through October 21st.
Stay tuned for more details.
