Ellicott City Winter Panorama 25% off sale at Fine Art America!


Fine Art America is having a 25% off sale on prints, (which they almost NEVER do). So you can get my Winter Panorama of Historic Ellicott City printed in a nice large size, up to 96 inches wide on the printed on acrylic option, or 108 inches wide if you chose the printed on stretched canvas option. For the next 12 hours only!

Their work is superior to any other print on demand printer, and with the discount, why wouldn't anyone take advantage of it. It's a lot cheaper than the $9500 I'm asking for the original painting!

Final Week! Historic Ellicott City Decorator Show House

The most popular item for me this year is scarves, made from my paintings. Most of them sold out in the first two days, so I've re-ordered, and they are expected before the end of October. We're taking orders, and are going to mail them out at no charge until they're sold out again. 

A percentage of every sale goes to Historic Ellicott City, INC. and they use all of that money toward supporting restoration projects in Historic Ellicott City, a place that is important to everyone reading this...

As of this morning, about half of the 48 scarves on order are already sold.


If you're not planning to visit the Show House and want to place an order, call me at 410-404-7318 with your charge card info, mailing address, and name of the scarf(s) that you want to order.


Call between Wednesday, and Sunday between 
noon to 4:00 to place your order.

Staff at the sales desk will process your card, and I will mail them as soon as they arrive.


The scarves are $40 each plus sales tax.

The scarves are six feet long. From the top, they are...

The Enchanted Forest
Birch Forest
Winter Panorama
From St Paul Street - Summer
From St Paul Street - Mid-Winter
