Some inspiration comes from a fleeting glance.

Occasionally, I get a good reference photo from the window of my truck.

Every once in a happy while, those two things happen at that same time.

    Once a Sto employee…
    I see the Sto bucket.
    I also see a craftsman/artist doing what he loves.
    So nice to see that with the hordes of people who hate their work, or their co-workers, or the commute or all three.
    Happy holidays.
    Kind regards,
    Rob

      Indeed, That bucket means a lot to me. I risked missing my plane home from Germany to run back to the plant and get this. Circa 1996. I saw them (Sample Pails) during the plant tour and kept thinking…”I could use that for something.” I’ve been using it ever since. Tx Rob!

    Even though I live near Burlington now, this is what I see in my mind when I think of my childhood and of my home state! The distance and space, the color… I love this painting!

    Ohhhhh…..I want to get this for the wall in my mother’s room at her long care facility in Indiana. She is from VT – her ancestors are from VT. Tho she has dementia, she still might enjoy the view. Also, let me know when it becomes available as cards.

      Thanks very much Lenora, your print is shipping today. This long horizontal format is trickier for cards. I dont have the infrastructure to produce them, yet. I am liking the format so as I paint more of them I’ll probably do cards at some point as well.

    Very nice painting today Peter! I am really enjoying the dynamics of your use of color. Are all of these paintings done in oil paint? Or are some executed in acrylic? I am really enjoying your posts!

      The last couple of years have been mostly oils Greg, with a few watermedia. (watercolor/gouache) No acrylic. I find it dries much too fast for my approach, even the open versions. I gave them a good solid try for while and they just weren’t for me.

    Nice work again, Peter! My friends and family out here in NW Ohio enjoy my frequent sharing of one of your weekly renditions. I find a lot of folks that have a trip to New England on their bucket lists and your paintings bring those days closer! Your remarks and videos (like this one) are a nice glimpse into the artist’s mind and eye! Thanks again! Whether you realize it or not, (and all these posted comments confirm it), your work and the sharing of it, are a ministry to hearts and souls!

      That’s very nice Jeff, I guess it’s a win-win…the very best deal we can make. It’s quite humbling to have so much support.

    Hi Peter, We love your PBS presentations! The inside look as to how your beautiful paintings come to be is delightful! Thank you for sharing your insights!

    Once again you got it Peter! Driving 22-A for over thirty years I can see what you have captured on your canvas. Our state is truly blessed to have people like you to put these images into a time capsule.
    Well done!

    I suspect it was far from happy chance that you found today’s inspirational subject, but rather that you are usually alert to possible greater manifestations in the everyday things in life.

      As a fellow artist (and poet) I’m sure you know Brian, it’s hard to turn it off once we’ve learned how to open the spigot. And why would we want to?

    Peter, I so enjoy watching your videos. Could you tell me the name and type of that large chisel brush that you start your watermedia paintings with , please.

    Your work is amazing Mr. Huntoon!! So glad I stumbled across your web page. I’ll be sharing with my in-laws who moved south several years ago, but left part of themselves here in VT. Thank you for sharing your beautiful work.
