Echo Lake Morning

Auction Closed. Sold via Buy Now $800. Next Auction Monday August 14. 

My friend Bob Sydorowich and I painted at Echo Lake in Ludlow last week.

We worked silently as the gentle mist rose over Camp Plymouth.

I recalled the chilly morning swims at the summer boy scout camp so many years ago, and waited patiently for Bob to utter his dependable phrase…

“You gotta be crazy not to love this!”

Size: 12X16 (auctioned unframed)
Medium: Oil on panel

Order Print

Please Note: Unless “Buy Now” occurs, this auction is scheduled to run for two weeks until Monday, August 21. I will need the extra week to catch my breath after next weekend…

Art in the Park!

If you are in the Rutland area this weekend, August 12 & 13, please stop by Art in the Park and say hello.

I’ll be in my usual hiding spot with a few originals, and a large selection of prints. I look forward to a nice weekend, seeing old friends and meeting new ones.

Cow Crossing

Some paintings take a rather circuitous route to completion.

I spotted this farm scene in Hubbardton on one recent sunny morning, and only had time to snap a quick photo.

The actual painting began as a demonstration at the beautiful Mission Farm in Killington.

I finally finished it last week in the studio.

Getting there is always half the fun.

Last but not least…

Otto’s Cones Point General Store on Lake St. Catherine in Poultney is one happening place.

If you haven’t been yet, you’re in for a real treat when you visit.

I just delivered this new (private commission) painting yesterday. 22X28 Watermedia.

Thank you Otto’s!

    Hi Peter, I did the same swims at the boy scout camp. Remember it well. Your painting of the lake is really great. You tied it all together with the colors just right.

    Awesome, each Monday to see and share your offering with Ohio friends! They love your work and it is a regular reminder to me, of home, sweet home! Born and raised in Middlebury, I am proud to show the few pieces I have of your fine expressions in paint.

    I love your Echo Lake Morning. Brings back memories of early morning fishing, watching the otters fish for their young and the early morning turtles on stones surrounding another lake I frequented. I can feel the mist and smell the surrounding trees. Great job!

    How lovely lies the mist on peaceful waters! Also I find “Cow Crossing” of great interest, first of all because it’s painted from a unique visual perspective, and secondly what I really find arresting are the representations of rich, blue chicory blossoms that seem to spring up everywhere along the highways of Vermont in August and , in this artistic case, have added hints of their blue beauty to stately silos and distant roof tops.
