Depot Hill Bridge

Depot Hill Bridge is one of four covered bridges in Pittsford.

Before there was a bridge here a young traveler was trying to cross Otter Creek.

He yelled across to the farmer; “How do I get to the other side?”

The old Vermonter paused for a moment, then hollered back; “You are on the other side.”

    Your paintings keep me inspired. The video was terrific, helped me get over missing your workshop this summer.

    Really wonderful video and amazing painting. Love it. And it couldn’t have been a more perfect day with the soft color on the trees and the train whistling in the background… Thanks so much for sharing Peter!

    Just delightful! We wanted to let you know that because of you we are taking a drawing class at the Community College in Rutland. Your tour of your studio with my friend, Arleen,so inspired me. Have a wonderful day. Muriel Brown

      That is great Muriel. Art can enrich our lives in many ways. Beyond a certain age (for some reason) to pick up a pencil and start drawing takes a lot of courage. You will be rewarded for your efforts.

    Great job Pete, has been amazing to watch you grow over these many years, looking forward to see where you go next

      Thanks Larry for your comment, and your friendship over those many years. Since I didn’t have enough natural talent in ping pong I decided to pursue art instead. It all worked out!

    Amazing painting and video this week. Thanks for sending the link, don’t know what happened to my e-mail. I appreciate the reference to Reno NV. Seeing the fall colors in the backround gave me my taste of Vermont in the fall. I needed that.

    I really enjoyed this – didn’t know there was a video until reading comments from my friends after I posted a comment on my timeline letting them know this is the bridge I have been running through for the past 15 years. Then I viewed the video and saw myself running past you and saying good morning.

      Ha, that is great! It’s a small, wonderful world. Thanks Ron, and hope to see you again out there both doing our thing.
