A Day in Vermont
October 21, 2019


Autumn Garden

Auction Closed. Sold via Buy Now $800. Next Auction Monday Oct 28.

This painting began in September, on location in the lush meadow behind the Sparkle Barn in Wallingford.

I worked on it last weekend at Art in the park, and finally finished it yesterday in my studio.

Of course we share something in common with autumn, a garden, and art.

The natural cycle of life.

A beautifully repeating process of transformation and change.

And the Winner Are…

As you may know, each month I draw two random A Day in Vermont email subscribers to win a free print of their choice.

It’s a fun way I get to say thanks for your amazing support. I couldn’t do this without you!

With all the recent autumn color to paint, September got away from me.

So we are catching up. Here are our winners for both September and October.

Our first winner is Roxanna MacMartin of Brattleboro, VT. Roxanna chose “Northfield Bridge” and had this to say…

“I’m thrilled and delighted to accept the generous gift of your beautiful art. I have been enjoying your emails and Facebook postings for quite some time now. I connected with your print called, “Northfield Bridge”, as Northfield was my home for 30 years. That is the print I would like to choose. What does it mean to me to live in Vermont? In a few words, Vermont is home and has been since 1980.  Vermont shines in every way, from its natural beauty, which you portray in your paintings, to its beautiful people. Vermonters are pioneers in preserving our magnificent Earth and seek fairness in our politicians that we vote for. Vermont inspires serenity and peace in its small towns, as well as nature all around us. Best of all, there is a warm sense of community and we’re always ready to help when needed. Your paintings represent all that Vermont is about.”


Our second winner is Lisa Morin of Putnam, CT. Lisa chose “Lake Bomoseen” and had this to say…

“I Love Vermont…
For its raw beauty of Nature
For its simple way of life
For skiing and hiking (my favorites)
For its roads less traveled, that lead you to peace and tranquillity.
And for its people who strive to protect and preserve the land for future generations…
I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Peter. You’re without a doubt a most humble, kind, authentic and of course talented artist-person. Wishing you continued success. My most thrilled appreciation for being the October lucky winner! Thank you always.”


Our third winner is Rob Aird of Frederick, MD. Rob chose “Angel Wings” and had this to say…

I am forever grateful to have known Peter for many years, first in the construction industry and subsequently through his amazing art. As he explains, taking the time to focus on an object or scene enables us to see more than we do at a glance. He is my guru for mindfulness. Thank you Peter.”

Our fourth winner is Lenor Filler, of South Boston, VA. Lenor chose “Cape Cod Light” and had this to say…

“Many  years ago my sister bought her first new car. and we took  a trip from Buffalo across Lake Champlain on the ferry at Fort Henry. My introduction to beautiful Vermont. After I married I lived in New England,  Ct. N.H. and  30 years on Cape Cod. I am in Virginia now and miss N.E. terribly. Peter’s paintings represent all of the aura of the N.E. area, I love his work and appreciate  every  Monday morning offering. Thanks so much.”

    Am happy for those who win, but am happier that these old eyes can still see your wonder-filled colors. Mt. Ascutney outdid itself in color – a few feeble attempts with my cheap camera- still waiting for Mr. Huntoon !!

    Love this beautiful capture of a late summer/early fall garden. My garden is frozen, tilled under, and becoming blanketed with autumn leaves, now falling in great numbers. Can’t complain, however, as the harvest, though late, was great! (especially the tomatoes)
