These paintings in acrylic and oil are all about the C&O Canal.  This canal was built to connect the Chesapeake Bay to the Ohio Valley via the Potomac and Ohio Rivers, and so making Washington a major port for Ohio farmland produce. Unfortunately The B&O Railroad was finished first, making Baltimore the important port, and the Canal was never finished. It does extend out to Cumberland Maryland, and is well preserved for all of its length. 

Starting in Georgetown, you can follow the C&O canal through the town, under numerous bridges, out to Great Falls and beyond. It follows the Potomac River out through Harpers Ferry where the Potomac and the Shenandoah Rivers meet, and then follows the North Branch of the Potomac out to Cumberland.  I love to paint the C&O in Georgetown and also at Great Falls.
