A Day in Vermont

Evening Grace

I often take the long way home. The best subjects are usually found there.

A recent evening drive through Tinmouth offered me this one.

    Love this picture, reminds me of the times we would go to my parents camp in Tinmouth-my father always called it God’s country.

  6. Steve Gilzow

    Like this very much, Peter. Beautifully composed. The receding fence line on the right, echoed by the left side foreground stubble, the diagonals of the background hills — everything leads us to rest in the light.

    Looks like my aunt and uncle’s farm in Minnesota where I spent many summers enjoying life on the farm. This would be my “happy” place for sure!! What a beautiful picture!!

  12. Pam Baldwin

    I just Love this painting. Vermont says ‘Winter Farm’ like no other state to me.
    Thank you so much for sharing your work!

  14. Erin Allen

    I drive by this beautiful place every day on my way home. Love this so much!

  15. Holly Green

    Absolutely beautiful! Truly gives the feeling of a quiet, snowy evening in farm country.

  16. Maureen Wallace

    You captured the evening somber mood. Cold outside, but the warmth in the barn is inviting.

  17. Dana Lewis

    Love this painting, Robert Frost, and even the title given this piece. I always look so forward to your Monday e-mail. Your talent is so inspiring! Thank you for sharing!

    your comment made me laugh and recall memories of my brother, Ray. he always took ‘The Road Less Travelled’ whenever he drove us anywhere much to our protesting. I did see more of our beautiful state that way

  19. Cris Carabeau

    Larry, our sons and I have had the honor of working this farm for the past 16 years. Thank you, Peter, for making us look so good!!

  20. Mary Ellen Rossi

    This is so familiar, not only because this farm is down the road from me, but because I once was a farmer, and the barn was a warm escape from the cold outside.

  21. Barby Carr

    This is really beautiful, Peter! You can see that lots of us think so. The warmth of the barn is so inviting on a cold snowy night. Such a fine job of painting a lovely scene.

  22. Doris Michel

    Hi Peter, what a winter’s evening. You catch the atmosphere. And really: your true love is a snow covered landscape. Isn’t it?

    • Peter Huntoon

      My true love is always the painting I’m working on at the moment. I think thats the right answer Doris.

      • Linda Reeves-Potter

        This painting does capture the moment. Especially the glow from the windows and the grass in the foreground has such movement!!! The fog rolling down the hill is such a typical evening in the winter. This composition is truly appealing in the sense of balance and contrast.

  23. Brian Blaine

    This painting immediately brought to my mind John 1 verse 5: “The light shines on in darkness, a darkness that did not overcome it.” Beautiful and powerful!

  24. Gail Steele

    Beautiful scene, and on my late fathers birthday! His roots were Vermont, and passed his love of this beautiful state on to me!

  25. Angie Parlin

    Your paintings have inspired us so! We are moving from Maryland to Shelburne, Vermont. Everyone thinks we are nuts…at our age you are supposed to head to sunny Florida. Not us! Got my husband snow shoes for Christmas! Thank you for your inspiration! Vermont…Here we come!

  26. Peter Huntoon

    Thank you so very much for all the support and wonderful comments. I really appreciate knowing my work is bringing a just little bit more joy into our world.

  27. Mary Helen Hawthorne

    Love your work and am happy to say I have one of your originals

  28. Carol Christensen

    Love the cozy Vermont winter glow of this painting – so happy to be a new email subscriber!

  29. Tammy Edmonds

    So lovely reminds me of home. I love how the light draws you in especially in this dark time of the year I can just picture my home farm in Addison with the lights beaming. Thank you!

    I have to respond, along with so many others, that this painting captures something on a deeper level than usual. I’m not sure if it’s the slate gray sky, the soon approach of a winter night, the sense of cold… or if it’s the barn that seems to be drawing one to the warmth anticipated inside. I don’t know. But, this one is just quintessentially my memories of growing up in VT in the deep of winter. Thank you, Peter.

    I can appreciate this beautiful snowy scene as I live in Northern Nevada , even though we have snow we don’t have the scenery like this so gorgeous .

  32. Scott

    I have seen this painting close up in person at the studio while still drying and it is gorgeous. You wont be disappointed if you have the winning bid. Great contrast of cold winter dusk and warmth of barn lights similar to Vermont scenes observed on way home from studio.
