A Day in Vermont

Forest Lake

Auction Closed. Sold via Buy Now $800. Next Auction Monday, Oct 8.

Here is one more from my recent trip into Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom and Quimby Country.

Sitting by the lake painting I saw ducks, loons, geese, and herons.

Here in this remote place surrounded by nature, I also heard something extraordinary and profound…

Art in the Park

It’s that time of the year again…the October edition of Chaffee’s Art in the Park is this coming weekend, Saturday and Sunday, October 6 & 7.

Weather, so far, is looking good.

If you are in the Rutland Vermont area please stop by to say hello and to support the Chaffee. There are many wonderful artists and craftspeople participating.

I’ll be there in my usual spot with several original paintings, along with a large selection of prints.

Hope to see you there!

    This painting gives me goose bumps — I can just feel the cool air, stillness and silence! What a gift to see it this rainy, gray morning! Thank you!

    Gorgeous! Feel like I’m there enjoying the beauty
    and crispness of Fall.

    I’m awestruck at the power that this beautiful abstract painting has to convey a sense of utter peace and contentment. You’ve rendered in paint a rich and exquisite message of beauty and life that is usually only experienced in the gentle, ever seeking, vision of the soul.

    We call it “The golden October”, we love the clear sky and the colored leaves. We smell the air and from the forest we get a chill of growing mushrooms. So it is. In your painting we find all these sensations and of course the overwhelming silence. Only nature is speaking. The lake reflects the daylight in cool colors.
