A Day in Vermont

Dorset Union Store

Auction Closed. Sold via Buy Now $800. Next auction Monday, March 2. 

The Dorset Union Store beckons travelers through all seasons, even when the going gets tough. And the going can get tough.

I tried painting this scene twice before and failed miserably. Third time’s the charm.

Most folks assume talent is the most important attribute for an artist.

In my experience, it’s determination.

Size: 12X16 (auctioned unframed)

    So glad for your recognition in the most appropriate magazine! Your prior tries at the current scene must have had a reason…. and this surely shows the winter scene @ it’s best. “You did good!”

      Thanks Cynthia! I like to think of the failures as very necessary lessons.

    Your well deserved recognition is becoming more and more obvious to folks far and near. I love this painting, but then, I love them all. Karen and I still talk about the magical day we spent with you. What a gift and inspiration. The only thing better than your work, is your kind heart. Enjoy Mud season as it is coming soon!

    I love this painting because you can feel the warmth from inside the store with the colors and light. I absolutely love your “A Day In Vermont”!

    Peter – went to Dr Matt Conway’s office in Rutland today & saw one of your prints. My husband thought it was Dowager Hill as viewed from the newish (not really new anymore) Rt 4 east out of Rutland going towards Castleton. I would like to get him a copy if possible. I searched “Dowager Hill” & nothing came up – perhaps you’ve named it something else. Please let me know either way …thanx so much Judith

      Hello Judith, I’m afraid I don’t know what print hangs at Dr. Conway’s. If you can send me a pic (peter@peterhuntoon.com) I can see. I’ll try to go by his office next chance I get, too. Tx!

    The Dorset Union Store used to be “Peltier’s” back in the 60s and 70s, my go-to place when my grandmother needed to pick up a few groceries. I was only there during the summer, which was always very welcoming. Your painting has beautifully captured that feeling.
