Williamsville Bridge in Newfane, Vermont.
With a Nor’easter on the way it looks like I’ll get to do a few more snow scenes.
Come what may, I do try to savor every day.
Below are two recent plein-air pieces from a particularly good one.
Also, our two print winners for this month!
Size: 12X16 (auctioned unframed)
Medium: Oil on panel
Ahhh…. Plein Air!
While I usually opt for the comforts of the studio during much of the winter here in Vermont, I’m always ready to take advantage of a reasonably warm day to paint outdoors on location.
Here are two such paintings recently completed.
And the Winners Are…
Each month I draw two random Day in Vermont subscribers to win a free print of their choice. It’s one small way I can say thanks for your tremendous support.
Our first winner is Beth Stanton of Pittsfield, Vermont. Beth chose “Amee Farm” and had this to say…
“I always look forward to ‘A Day in Vermont’ on Monday mornings because I love seeing Peter’s artistic interpretations of familiar places in Vermont. My Vermont roots go back to my Great Great Great Grandparents who settled in St. Johnsbury area around 1850, coming from Ireland with their seven children. Although, I’ve spent my life between VT and CT, many of Peter’s paintings remind me of childhood, as well as fond memories throughout the years. I chose a print of Amee Farm because the location is near our home in Pittsfield and I had the pleasure of watching Peter paint Amee Farm at the Killington Art Garage Demonstration with my cousin. Thank you so much for this opportunity!”
Our second winner is Janet Siegel of Chatham, New Jersey, Janet chose “Arlington Dairy Bar” and had this to say…
“We love seeing you work thru your emails. If you recall Brian and I live and work in New Jersey and also have a home in Arlington. We have a couple of your pieces would love to continue our collection! The one that caught our eye is the Arlington Dairy Bar. We love your interpretation of the buildings we have come to know so well on our weekend visits. Someday we will be in Vermont on a more permanent basis but until then we settle for our extended weekends and your lovely artwork! Arlington Vermont is a special to us as we find ourselves inspired by its beauty. From our walks along the river to the hikes on the logging trails we always find new views and vistas that renew our spirit! Thank you for keeping us in touch!”
