August Arrangement

Auction Closed. Sold via Buy Now $800. Next auction Monday Sept 3.

Like summertime in Vermont, last week went by too fast.

And there I was yesterday morning with nothing to post for today.

My wife suggested I paint her hydrangeas.

So I borrowed her table arrangement for the day.

That’s our happy arrangement.

She suggests, I do.

Size: 12X16 (auctioned unframed)
Medium: Oil on panel

Order Print

And the Winners Are…

Each month I draw two random Day in Vermont subscribers to win a free print of thier choice.

It’s one small way I can say thanks for your tremendous support.

Our first winner for August is Suzanne Farrell of Chester, Vermont. Suzanne chose “Lily Pond”, and had this to say…

“Vermont is my home. It’s where I live, work and play. Whether driving along the back roads, barreling up and down the highway, swimming in its lakes, hiking through its woods or strolling through its villages, Vermont’s natural world surrounds me everywhere I go. It soothes my mind and fills my heart with warmth and light. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. Opening an email from “A Day in Vermont” is like a retreat. On a busy Monday morning I can take a moment to get lost on a winding country road, in the stillness of the woods or in the warmth of a sunset. Peter Huntoon’s artwork celebrates Vermont’s beauty and captures its tranquil moments while bringing a sense of peace to all who view it.”

Our second winner is Mary Grennan of Massapequa, New York. Mary chose “East Poultney Nor’easter” and had this to say…

“Although we love our Long Island home near ocean beaches, it’s always good to get away. Vermont is our respite and oasis, our “go to place” for a change of routine. Throughout the busy year, the Green Mountains call our name, beckoning us to come ski, hike, relax, and enjoy the beauty and solitude of nature. Thank you, Peter for all your stunning paintings. We already own and enjoy three of them!”

    I get your emails every week and enjoy all your paintings. This one with the floral called Follow your Heart is beautiful. Love the colors and all. I’ve been to Vermont on several occasions and love it. Have also been to it’s neighbor New Hampshire, which is just as lovely and peaceful. Thank you for sending these paintings every week.

    This painting is a beautiful example of how careful choices in colors, values, and edges in the background can make a major difference in a painting’s overall impact. Nice job!

    I am a long time admirer of your work. I have one print I smile at often. I won it at a RRCC Mixer, “Maiden Vermont”. I have some others but she has found a spot on the wall in my kitchen. As special as she is “August Arrangement” is by far my Favorite so far!

    Nice work.
