Weston Mill

The Weston Mill and Playhouse snuggle along the banks of the West River.

It’s a popular spot among photographers and artists, for good reason. Hard to resist such a beautiful Vermont motif.

Size: 10X20 (auctioned unframed)
Medium: Oil on linen panel

And the Winners Are…

As a way to say thanks for your continued support, each month a draw two random Day in Vermont subscribers to win a free print of their choice.

Our first winner for February is Barbara Russ of South Burlington, VT. Barbara chose “Lily Pond”, and had this to say…

“I love Vermont’s lakes, mountains, and sunsets.  It is a great place to live and play. Cultural opportunities are abundant and the state’s politics are generally aligned with my values. Peter’s art captures the range of nature and activities that make Vermont so unique. Thank you, Peter!”

Our second winner to Thomas West of Rutland, VT. Thomas chose “Sunday Bandstand”, and had this to say…

“Thank you for selecting me as the February winner! The print I would like is “Sunday Bandstand”. Over 45 years ago I spent many hours with the Rutland City Band under the direction of Gerald Minard. Vermont (and this print) still represents a place that is safe for families to gather on a cool Sunday evening.”

    Hi Peter, a great painting again. And winter lasts on and on. But you’re a fan of winter. Perhaps it’s the only way to stand it. You’re showing he positive sides of a the winter. The delicate white snow with its fine and specific colors. The ensemble of the mill and the amazing old conifer in the foreground. The point of view makes the difference: A painter instinctively catches the best, the most interesting perspectives. Go on. Every Monday we look into another great part of Vermont.

      Thank you Doris, Yes, I love winter and the snow. It is a great subject that transforms the landscape. That said, I get eager for Spring like anyone does this time of year. 🙂

    Hope others took the time to admire the preliminary sketch as well as the finished painting. It provides interesting insight into the thought process involved in developing line, texture and color values into a cohesive and captivating final work. I too like the foreground conifer, a blue spruce, perhaps?

      Thanks Brian, I have been emphasizing my preliminary sketches a bit more these days…I think they are contributing to the eventual painting, as well as my overall productivity, in a very positive way.

    Today I received my first “A Day in Vermont” email since T.M. Moore introduced me to you in his Feb16 ReVision commentary “Unity in Culture.” After thoroughly romping through all the images on your website, Peter, I have this question: WHEN DO YOU SLEEP?!

      Thanks Peter, as mentioned above, I do now paint full time, and I have been doing this a long while. I like to think I’m just getting started!

    Your paintings bring back memories of my visits to Vermont years ago. It’s so lovely in the summer, everything is so green and peaceful. I also was there one Fall and saw so many colorful trees, it was breathtaking. Have you ever made a calendar of your paintings? It would be lovely to see Vermont all year long.

      Thanks Lillian! I’ve batted around the calendar idea. I won’t rule one out someday.
