Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County on Fine Art America

While organizing Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County themed art for the virtual tour, we created a gallery for this work on Fine Art America as well.  In addition to the artwork featured in my Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County original art sale, you will also find images of originals that have sold.  Click here to visit the gallery. 

If you like one of my images, but the original is not available in your preferred size or material, you could consider making a print of the picture.

For example, The Edge, pictured below, is an original on paper sized at 9″x12″.  Fine Art America offers it in a canvas print as large as 22″x30″.

If an original such as Cutting Edge, measuring 3’x4′, is too large for your liking, it can be purchased in smaller sizes and formats.

Other fun products include phone cases, tote bags and shower curtains to name a few.

Finally, I wouldn’t necessarily call it a “fun” product, but if you are in the market for a creative face mask, they offer those as well.

Have some fun browsing the gallery.  If you see an image, but don’t see it as the product you are looking for, please let us know at rhyonke@gmail.com.

 

Sandy Douglass

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.

If you want to learn more about Sandy, Chesapeake Bay Magazine published this piece in 2018.

Sailing on Deep Creek Lake

There is a long history of sailing on Deep Creek Lake. There is a Flying Scot factory in nearby Oakland, Maryland and the Deep Creek Yacht Racing Association runs races on the southern end of the lake.

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.

Below is the newest work featuring sailing.

Cutting Edge

I’ve got a couple of other in the works.

The sailboat paintings tend to sell quickly. There are a few available in the Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County Sale Gallery.

Many popular sailing images are still available in prints, cards, and other fun reproductions (like phone cases and yes face masks!) at Fine Art America.

Drifter is available in prints and cards.

There is nothing quite like watching the boats head down the lake, spinnakers flying. You can find them racing on Saturday and Sunday afternoons through the summer season.

Visit the Gallery Shop

The Gallery Shop, home of the Garrett County Arts Council, in Oakland, Maryland is now open by appointment. They are also open to the public on certain days of the week. Follow their Facebook page to make an appointment or learn about upcoming walk-in hours.

Heading Up is my latest piece to hang in the shop. I encourage you to visit and support this shop, where you can view art from many talented artists in Garrett County.
