Brattleboro Rush Hour

Auction Closed. Sold via Buy Now $800. Next Auction Monday, Jan 9.

Something told me to head south.

It had been a while since I visited Brattleboro.

I found a thriving community with a bustling, dynamic downtown vibe.

At least it felt that way as I darted in and out of traffic with my camera.

All the best to you and yours for a happy, healthy 2017!

    What a soggy day in downtown Brattleboro! Great renditions of the wet streets, cloudy skies, and remains of a recent snowstorm. All is not sunshine and birdsong at this time of year in Vermont! P.S. Love the careful attention to proper perspective throughout. Well done!

      Hi Brian, you always look like an eagle and you discover the secrets of Peter’s paintings. Nice to read it.

      Thanks very much Brian, I find I’m attracted more and more to the “less than ideal” aspects of weather. More drama and mood opportunities to depict there.

    You just keep getting better. The sky has wonderful hints of those vibrant yellow reflections. Great sense of space. Wishing you well in 2017, Peter.

      Thanks so much Steve, and to you. As a fellow artist, you know how hard and gradual “getting better” can be. To hear I’m making progress from a fellow artist…that makes my day!

    I couldn’t love this more. Having lived in Bratt for nearly 30 years, sadly I am now in MA. I miss so much about this little town and the community it holds. Thanks for the memories and for catching the spirit of this wonderful place!

    Happy new year, Peter. Fine vedute. Like a boulevard Parisienne but beamed to Brattleboro. Immediately you found a client. This is not astonishing. The new year begins good. Greetings from Berlin.

      Thanks very much Doris, I learned a new word! I am now a vedutisti?

        Peter, I love playing around with words and surely you’re not the classical “vedutisti” like Bernardo Belotto. Sometimes, when you leave the countryside and you find yourself in a town then you look for the typical flair of the town and you’ll get it. This is what I wanted to express.

    You must have needed a warm jacket! Like the steeple trio in contrast w/ the “block” buildings. Congratulations for the recognition! Cynthia

      Thank you Cynthia, yes, I think the three steeples were a main reason I chose this exact view. The warm jacket is nice, but optional on days like this. Muck boots on the other hand…a necessity!

    This is a very good painting. I knew exactly where it was before I could blink. I wish I could return & will always call Brattleboro “home”.

    I have lived in Poultney my who life and have admired your work for years. One of my favorites is the picture of Main Street looking down from the high school. I am so glad to have a chance to win one of your pictures.
