Description: Sidling Hill Creek is on the “backside” of Sidling Hill Mountain in Maryland. It flows toward and empties into the Potomac River. Because it is known for trout and bass I’ve waded this stream for years. This spot I call “The Crossing” since you can usually cross here without taking a “header” into the deep water.

As a senior in high school, I read Ted Kautzky's Ways With Watercolor and was hooked for life. The book was full of vivid transparent watercolors and common sense advice for the aspiring artist.
After graduating college with a degree in education, I became an art teacher in the Maryland public school system. During summers I worked as a coordinator and director in the state's Gifted and Talented Summer Centers. Eventually I became Supervisor of Fine Arts for Washington County Maryland. Throughout my career, I continued to paint with watercolors and attended workshops presented by John Pike, Dong Kingman and many others.
I currently live in Sharpsburg, Maryland with my lovely wife Cindy. I find daily inspiration for my art through a love of the outdoors. Now in retirement I have more time to focus on my painting and the sketchbook can “go out the door” and the studio lights can “go on” daily.
