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.

Cutting Edge

I worked on another series of sailboat paintings this summer, based on the scenes around Deep Creek Lake’s thriving Flying Scot community. Cutting Edge  is one of the pieces in the series.  A few of them sold before the paint dried, but this is still available for purchase at the Garrett County Arts Council’s Gallery Shop.
