The well fed flock at Merck Forest in Rupert, Vermont enjoys a friendly visit.
If I happen to come back around as a sheep, I’d be very happy here.
The reference photo for this painting arrived in a recent newsletter from Merck Forest, and I couldn’t resist.
Thank you Anna and Rob Terry for sharing your wonderful farm and image!

And the Winners Are…
Each month I draw two random Day in Vermont subscribers to win a free print of their choice.
It’s one small way I get to say thanks for continued support.
Our first winner for February is Janice Prindle of South Woodstock, Vermont. Janice chose Vermont Sunset and had this to say…
“I am bowled over! This is such a treat! And an honor. Yes, I’m a regular subscriber and admire your work , not only as an artist but as someone who is always reaching out through your art to the community, via your emails, videos and public events. I am a beginner with watercolors and I’m constantly learning from what you share. I chose Vermont Sunset for its stunning sky over the near and far mountains—an invitation to timeless peace, while those hay bales along the meadow side of the road remind us that we work hard and sacrifice much to live here, where we can be uplifted by natural beauty as we go about our business every day. This scene illustrates an old poem by Dr. Johnstone that’s on my kitchen wall, “No Vermonters in Heaven” — because they insist on hiking right back to Vermont! Thank you, Peter, for your work, which always reminds me how lucky I am to live in “heaven on earth.”
Our second winner is Suzanne Sperry of Rutland, Vermont. Suzanne chose “From Here to Eternity”, and had this to say…
“I was so pleased to find out my name was selected for one of your prints. I enjoy receiving the weekly email of A day in Vermont to see your work as well as your words of inspiration. I have called Vermont my home for 35 years and absolutely love the Green Mountains that surround me. I grew up near Lake George NY with the Adirondack park in my back yard. I feel blessed to have experienced living in both states that have such natural beauty. The print I have chosen From here to Eternity is a reminder of where I am and where I grew up. Thank you again Peter.”
