We’ve had an old fashioned Vermont winter this year, and like most, I’m about ready for spring.
The thing is, Mother Nature dances to her own tune.
As an artist who appreciates truth, integrity, and independence, I gotta respect her whims.
Thanks to my good friend Doug Ferguson for the fine photo reference!

New Show Announcement: Opposites Attract
Gallery at the VAULT, in Springfield Vermont, is proud to present “Opposites Attract”, a show of new work by husband and wife painters Mareva Millarc and Peter Huntoon from March 28 through May 31.
You are invited to the opening reception on Thursday, March 29 from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm. Enjoy some refreshments while meeting Peter and Mareva and seeing how two very different artists create and thrive individually, together.
Mareva Millarc has been a professional artist since 2007. Painting with oil, acrylic, ink and mixed media, her abstract/non-objective works take the imagination on a compelling voyage through each piece. Highlighted by bold line work, organic and geometric shapes and a blend of paint layers, her work offers a versatile approach to the creative potential of each individual painting.
Peter Huntoon has been celebrating the beauty of Vermont in his award winning paintings for over 20 years. A life long passion for art and his native state are evident in his work. His distinctive paintings in oil and watermedia feature strong composition, innovative color, and enthusiastic brushwork. You may have seen Peter’s work in Vermont Magazine, watched him painting on Vermont PBS, or on WXAC’s Made in Vermont series.
For more information please call or visit Gallery at the VAULT, 68 Main Street, Springfield. Open 11 to 5 Tuesday through Saturday. Contact: 802-885-7111, firstname.lastname@example.org, www.galleryvault.org, www.marevamillarc.com, www.peterhuntoon.com.
And the Winners Are…
As you probably know, each month I draw two random Day in Vermont email subscribers to win a free print of their choice.
Our first winner for March is Michelle Doherty of Rockville, MD. Michelle chose “Here Comes the Sun”, and had this to say…
“It’s my lucky day! I’m so happy to be the recipient of one of your beautiful prints. I have several of your pieces hanging in my house and have purchased others for family members. Although it was difficult, my choice is “Here Comes The Sun.” The gorgeous sunflowers evoke wonderful memories from my childhood in Kansas. Peter’s paintings evoke, for me, the nostalgia of growing up in a small farming community in the Midwest. Although the topography of Vermont is different, the closeness of community, the beauty of nature, and the strength and grace of its people feel the same. How wonderful to start each week with Peter’s beautiful artwork and inspiring commentary from “A Day in Vermont” in my inbox.”
Our second winner is Paula Ottenbreit, of Marysville, WA. Mary chose “Echo Lake Morning”, and had this to say…
“Wow! I am absolutely thrilled to win a print from you! I am an admirer of the state of Vermont, and I am also an admirer of Peter Huntoon’s beautiful work! I’m so fortunate to be chosen as a winner of one of his great prints. It was very difficult to actually make a selection because I do love them all! Thank you!”
