Here in Vermont we’re still hibernating by the warm glow of the fire.

It’s a good time for quiet contemplation, anticipation, and calculation. How many days left till spring? Will the wood pile last?

It’s great to be back. Thank you very much for your patience while I finished up my commission work!

And the Winners Are…

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

It’s a fun way I get to say thanks for your continued support.

Congratulations to our free print winners for January and February!

Our first winner is Jake Laderman of Glencoe, IL. Jake chose “Quiet Afternoon” and had this to say…

“Though I’m not a native Vermonter, it’s always been a second home to me. For decades my family has spent at least a week out of each year at Quimby Country’s cottages up in Averill. I’ve loved the drives up to the Northeast Kingdom and throughout the rest of the state so much since I was a kid, so I was thrilled when I first discovered Peter’s paintings. I think they have a certain style that elicits the feeling you get when you’re actually standing in the scene itself, surrounded by the foliage and crisp Vermont air, in a way that a photo can’t. I really appreciate A Day in Vermont because it reminds me of why I look forward to going back each year, and I’m happy to have another print to put on my wall. Thank you Peter, as always I’m eager to see the work you’ll put out next.”

Our second winner is Linda Kulp of Williston, VT. Linda chose “Blue Iris” and had this to say…

“Thank you for your generosity. Each time I open ‘A Day in Vermont’ I feel like I’ve received a gift that day. Flowers are a passion of mine. Across the front of my house I’ve created a white perennial garden. This painting could be of my garden. I moved to Vermont 27 years ago into the best neighborhood. From the first day until now I pinch myself and say ‘This is home’.”

Our third winner is Suzanne Senesac of Colchester, VT. Suzanne chose “Northfield Bridge” and had this to say…

“What  Vermont means to me, what I love about Vermont: I love Vermont’s 4 seasons and the beauty and color in each – the whites and greys of winter; the pale, yet vibrant colors of spring; the gorgeous greens to be found everywhere in summer; and the unbelievable colors of autumn.  Having grown up in Vermont, the rolling farmlands and beautiful barns, covered bridges, mountains, and numerous lakes and streams all have such a beauty.  I never take it for granted. Your paintings represent all of it as well as parts of Vermont no one gets to see.”  

Our fourth winner is Beth Bissell of Proctor, VT. Beth chose “Forest Lake” and had this to say…

“I’ve lived in Vermont for almost 28 years, most of that time in the Northeast Kingdom. I love the people, and the pace, and the gorgeous lakes and mountains to swim in and kayak on and hike and ski and snowshoe. It was an awesome place to raise my boys in the freedom to play outside. I love how your work depicts all these things and places and feelings Peter. Thank you so much for the chance to win this print!”

Once again,  I’m sincerely honored to have one of my images (“Winter Walk“) chosen for the cover of Vermont Magazine.

    I am completely in love with Emanate Domain. What an outstanding painting that I can’t take my eyes off of. This painting so captures the untouched beauty of new fallen snow, the reflection in the ice pond just radiates, and the coziness I felt looking at the house which gives it such a warm glow. while capturing the very essence of winter in Vermont. I experienced the quietness you portrayed in the painting.. And those trees! So lifelike. The painting almost looks like a photograph. Just Brilliant!!

  4. Beth Ann Rossi

    The glow of home never looked more inviting. It warms the soul and heart. Thanks for helping me start the week off with a smile.

  5. Susan Roberts

    Awesome..this evokes so many feelings! I hope you are watching Venus in the night sky, sparkle and shimmer…in the WSW and maybe sometime add that to a night painting! Congratulations on the magazine cover! What an accomplishment!

    While all the works are beautiful, The “Dog Days of Winter”
    just spoke to my heart. Looking at it, I see all the
    dogs we’ve had through these many years. It’s
    really a touching piece.

    It’s driving me crazy……… Did you mean Eminent Domain? I’m obsessing over the title; trying to figure out your meaning. I am a wacko!

    • Peter Huntoon

      Play on words Sandy, sorry about that. Maybe I stretched a little too far. Emanate…as in warm light emanating from the cozy domain. 🙂
