The fleeting splendor of Autumn is something to behold while it lasts.

I drove north last week to find peak color and savor it in paint.

We met like old friends in East Burke. I quickly set up my easel and went to work.

And the Winners are…

Congratulations to our two free print winners for September!

Our first winner is Susan Gaboriault of Whitefield, NH. Susan chose “Lamoille River” and had this to say…

“I was born and raised in Hardwick, and of course my choice would be the Lamoille River Painting. My grandfather was a doctor in Hardwick for many years after returning from WW1 to start his practice. Dr. A.C. Kinney delivered my 7 siblings in my family. I was born in 1941, and remember when I got my drivers license in 1958 he asked if I would drive him to his house calls outside the village. As soon as I saw where you were set up to paint I knew exactly where you were. I thought you would like to see this beautiful Eagle Hotel that used to be on the left corner of where you painted. So sad it was taken down for being unsafe. I hope you will return to Hardwick to paint again, I love the bold strength in your brush strokes, it reminds me of the rugged character of our ancestors coming to this area from Europe to settle Vt. and eventually making Hardwick The Granite Capital of the world. This hotel was home to many men working in the granite sheds, cutting and splitting the huge blocks to sizes needed for cemetery monuments, construction and commercial building’s.”

Our second winner is Patricia Embree of Rutland, VT. Patricia chose “A Walk In Woodstock”  and had this to say…

“I grew up in Vermont where every Season was a showcase of beauty.After I moved away I still returned every Summer and we would take day trips around Vermont.I lived in a more populous area so to see open fields and smell the Pines was , ah,  simply delightful. We always stopped In Woodstock for a bite to eat and wander around. Your paintings so capture what Vermont is about. Love then. Thank you for my print and your talent.”

    I just returned from spending a week in Vermont. I visited East Burke and Bennington so both paintings remind me of my recent visit. I only wish that I would have come across you while you were on the side of the road painting these images. Your paintings are just as beautiful as your state. I love Vermont and “A Day in Vermont”!
