November Quietude

November is a month of transition.

In her quieter moments she reflects on the season past, and whispers of what’s to come. Here the corn still stands, rustling softly in the field below an overcast sky.

This painting began as a demo for the Vermont Watercolor Society on Saturday at the Middlebury Inn. Thanks to all who attended and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

    Reckon am abit different – but I love to see the trees after the leaves have fallen – their “nakedness”. the beauty of their structure – thanks, Peter.

    Recognized this immediately…just up and around the corner from our house. Love it.

    Carleen, where is this house located, exactly? It is a dead ringer for our house, and we are in East Dorset. Where is this one, please?

    • Peter Huntoon

      Thanks Michele, yes it’s just north of Tinmouth Town center on 140. Apparently the “Valentine hose”

    I need to make more wall space! Love this one and the house in Cornwall with the widows walk!

    Happy to see the finished painting. Thank you for your willingness to share and for allowing the VWS to be part of your Day in Vermont.

      Thanks for asking me Joey, my pleasure and hope to see you again soon!

    Yes, quietude is a good description of our November day, today. There was a gentle breeze on the Great South Bay and beautiful light on the changing garden…

  10. Lance Evoy

    Such beauty is always captured
    by you in your paintings Peter.
    Thank you.

    Each season has its own special beauty. Short weeks ago we had the fireworks of autumn ,while now we enjoy a rich tapestry of the beautiful but more subtle earth tones. We must make haste to enjoy this rapidly changing time of year before it changes to (sadly?) weeks and weeks of “snow color”

    Peter, your demonstration at the Vermont Watercolor Society’s Fall meeting on Saturday was just great! Thank you so much. I hope to paint with you again in the spring with the plein aire group from Artistree in Woodstock. Meanwhile, have a lovely winter….

    • Peter Huntoon

      So glad you enjoyed it Kathy, I’ll see you next Spring if not before. Thanks!

    Looks like the Valentine house in Tinmouth, built about 1850 by Edmund Valentine.

    Peter, Would this be the large home on corner with pastures behind, high on a hill in Mt. Holly, VT? It was the former Cook Family house.

    • Peter Huntoon

      Tx Ruth, a few of these familiar scenes in Vermont for sure. This one is just north of Tinmouth Town center on 140. Apparently the “Valentine hose”
