This year is Deep Creek Lake’s 95th Anniversary. I came across this article in Mountain Discoveries Magazine that explains the history of the lake. We started spending time in Garrett County in the early eighties. I enjoyed reading about some of the places I knew, such as Johnny’s Bait House and the Four Seasons Dining Room.
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.
With the absence of this year’s Studio Tour and Deep Creek’s birthday, I’ll be posting more of my work based on images from the area over the coming weeks.
