Little Lake

Auction Closed. Sold via Buy Now $800. Next Auction Monday October 9.

I was quietly painting this southerly view on Lake St. Catherine last week.

Then I spotted movement.

Like she did it every day, a deer jumped into the water on the far shore between two camps and swam straight across the channel.

I almost called this one “Deer Crossing.”

Please Note: This auction is scheduled to run for two weeks.

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

Art in the Park

It’s that time of the year, and I’ll be at Art in the Park this weekend, October 7 & 8, in Rutland, Vermont.

Stop by and say hello if you are in the area. I’ll look forward to seeing you!

    Hi Peter. Hope all is well with you. I have fond memories of staying at a cabin on Lake St. Catherine many years ago. Beautiful painting.

    Lovely painting….I have always enjoyed cattails. Wonderful that you saw and photographed the doe. Deer are beautiful. Cabin on a smaller lake is a gift. Thank you for a welcomed spot in our day. Cynthia

    Autumn trees across the lake seem to enhance and echo similar colors from amongst the near rushes and cattails. When young, I used to shout across still waters on a similar lake and listen to another type of echo bounce off the mountains, returning my call ! A beautiful painting, Peter, stimulating beautiful memories. Thank you, as always.

    Peter,
    How I envy the times you are having painting these beautiful pictures. I like to hunt, but my favorite part of hunting is the wildlife encounters. I have followed all of your paintings of recent date and you are doing a wonderful job documenting the picturesque and historical qualities of our wonderful State of Vermont.

      Thanks Sylvia, I used to hunt and I agree, my favorite part was always just observing nature. Then I discovered I was much more successful (and happy) going out “hunting” with a paintbrush.

    This painting is lovely with your sense of quiet beauty. I was born and raised in the Northeast Kingdom of Vt. and love the memories of my childhood. Camping in a large Army tent all summer at Nichol’s Pond tops the list. Susan
