The mighty Black River cascades into downtown Springfield.
Aptly named by local Indians, Comtu means “Great Noise”.
The river provided a great source of power to 20th century industry.
Last week it provided this artist with a great subject.
I’m often asked what my favorite thing to paint is.
Size: 12X16 (auctioned unframed)
Medium: Oil on panel
And the Winners Are…
Each month I draw two random Day in Vermont subscribers to win a free print of their choice.
It’s one small way I can say thanks for your continuing support.
Our first winner for June is Susan Rogers of Proctorsville VT. Susan chose “Apple of my eye”, and had this to say…
“I have traveled all over the United States, and spent some time in a few States before I settled in Vermont. I love the change of seasons. I love driving the back roads every day that surprise me with a different view. Thanks Peter for capturing so much of what I love about Vermont!”
Our second winner is Carol Kurto of Saratoga Springs, NY. Carol chose “Sissy’s Garden” and this to say…
“My husband, Peter, and I love Vermont for many reasons, but primarily because of the beautiful scenery and the tranquility and peace we feel whenever we drive over the border from New York to Vermont. We especially enjoy the artwork, photography, quaint inns and restaurants we visit as well as the Vermont Cheese Farms and the artisanal bakeries. Being a retired chef, my husband truly believes that the cheeses and breads created in Vermont are the best in the world! The Vermont artists, authors and organic farmers create products unlike anywhere in our vast country. Your artwork, Peter, captivates the aura of this unique state and that is why we own many of your wonderful prints. We are pleased to know we will now own an additional print of yours entitled “Sissy’s Garden” . Thank you so much for choosing us and sending us this gorgeous print . We hope you will soon create a painting of “The Reluctant Panther Inn”, as we are headed there on Monday to celebrate our 52nd Anniversary! Thank you again , and we look forward to seeing more of your work in the future. Sincerely, Carol and Peter Kurto”
