Finnel Hollow Farm

Auction Closed. Sold via Buy Now $800. Next Auction Monday August 21. 

The Finnel Hollow Road in East Poultney is also known as “The Loop Road.”

The hard working Moyer Farm is a permanent fixture here.

Many places in Vermont seem to go by two different names.

Same goes for the people.

While one name might be official, the other’s often practical.

Size: 12X16 (auctioned unframed)
Medium: Oil on linen panel

    Love this painting, I am partial to country roads, barns and age. This would be a peaceful walk to restore your soul and clear your mind. Your work always touches my heart.

    In your Wallingford ones, do you have one of East street and the Haggerty place

    Hi Peter!
    I didn’t know if you were aware or not, but the house on the left hand side of your painting, the one that sits on the rise, was, at one time, the local courthouse!! My grandmother often talked about it. She was the school teacher at the little school house just a tiny bit further up the road.
    I always enjoy your work. It’s so relaxing and calming to look at.

    I was raised here on the farm. It is a quiet road most of the time, great place to get lost in thoughts and just feel peace. Many memories of everything this painting has captured and then some. You did a wonderful job. I just love it.

    Thank you.

    It occurs to me that farming and painting are very similar occupations. Whether it be seeds of corn or of artistic inspiration, both must first be sown. Then, with a generous measure of hard work, wisdom gained from prior experience, clear vision, the blessing of God, and a certain amount of sheer luck, comes the reward. This painting is truly beautiful. Now may the farmer’s corn will win its struggle over a wet and stormy summer to yield an equally rich harvest.

    Peter,
    Great painting. This happens to be the farm I grew up on for my first 10 years or so. I was back visiting this summer and bought my syrup just down the road at Greene’s.
    Thanks

        It’s really cool to read the comments of others who have lived here or know more of the history. It was a wonderful place to grow up 🙂
