Whence came you?

They say you don’t get to choose your parents.

Same goes for your hometown.

I happened to get lucky with both.

    I love all your work, but this one really pulls at myheart strings, and my aesthetic responses. Reminds me of my first visits to Veremont, 1963, and that Rutland struggles on, and will continue. thank you.

    My first 2 children were born in Rutland. My home town is BinghamtonNY. I emigrated to Fair Haven after graduating from Pharmacy school. I worked in Fair Haven, Poultney, Rutland, and eventually Middlebury and Vergennes. I remember this corner at Christmas time in Rutland. Many pieces of my heart are still there. You do beautiful things. Bravo

    Hi Peter – I am from Rutland, grew up in the gut ! Made a couple of moves, as a high schooler lived in Fair Haven and as an adult Springfield . I enjoy all your paintings but especially love the Main St/ Downtowns of familiar places ! Thanks for the memories !

    Your painting captures the warm beauty of Rutland and evoked memories of walking that corner on the way to visit with the “Pickle Man” at the Farmer’s Market. Thank you for sharing your talent and your obvious love of this beautiful state.

    Another great view of Downtown Rutland. It certainly brings back memories from my visits to Rutland starting in 1965. I have prints of two of your other works of downtown. They’re still in storage from my cross country move but will be prominently and proudly displayed again. Thanks Peter.

    I have lived in Rutland my entire life and downtown has so many special memories for me. Peter you knocked it out of the park on this one. Your art is something that helps bring our community together and keeps that positive attitude on how Rutland is a special place to live.
