A Day in Vermont

Home for the Holidays

Auction Closed. Sold via Buy Now $800. 

Next Auction Monday Dec 26. 

A fresh blanket of snow put me in the holiday mood.

So off I went to find a worthy subject.

Four wheel drive and good snow tires are a necessity in my line of work.

If home is where the heart is, I hope yours is filled with peace and joy.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

    Gosh, I love this Peter. It reminds be of the countryside where my mother was born in rural Virginia. Whoever gets it will be blessed. I wish I could but not able. Love it.

  2. Doris Michel

    Oh, how nice! Soft lilac-grey wintercolors. Frosted snow and twilight…. And you love to stay at home. Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

  3. Dave Miller

    Peter- a beautiful winter scene. This makes me consider visiting my sister and brother in law in Dorset this winter. Your paintings have been a wonderful addition to our Florida home. Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

      Thank you Dave, I’ll look forward to seeing you guys when you visit again!

  4. Karen Nevin

    This is beautiful! the muted colors are not your usual palette, but I love this one. Makes me think of Frost’s “Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening”. Happy Holidays to you!

    • Peter Huntoon

      Thanks very much Karen! I have been playing with some (very) muted compositions. You may see some more in 2017. 🙂

  5. Susan Roberts

    Merry Christmas & Happy New Year Peter!

    Hi Peter, Home for the Holidays is wonderful. I would love it if you did note cards or Christmas cards.
    This one would be my choice!
    Merry Christmas!

  12. Brian Blaine

    When the snow is falling values and contrasts are diminished, but a richness remains. Delicate color enhances the grays, and a sense of peace and stillness descends. A soft glow of warm light from distant windows welcomes each of us home, even if only possible in our minds and hearts. Merry Christmas, Peter. So glad I got to meet you this past summer in Waitsfield. I’ll try to send a little warm Florida sunshine your way!

    • Doris Michel

      Hi Brian, for me your comments are highlights. I’m waiting for them. And so I wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year from a distant grey Duisburg in Germany. Doris

    • Peter Huntoon

      I can’t top Doris’ comments this week Brian…thanks to you both! 🙂

    2017 brings retirement to my boyhood home, the lovely Cotswold Hills of Oxfordshire, England. The nearest place on earth I know that compares to the beauty that is our Vermont home. I’ve placed a bid on the “Home for the Holidays” painting, Peter. It will take pride of place in my Cotswold home if my acquisition succeeds. A fond reminder of the many wonderful years I have spent here in Vermont.

    • Peter Huntoon

      Thank you Thomas, I have heard of many great artists being attracted to that area. It looks wonderful and maybe I will visit one day. Sorry you did not “win” this one, but hopefully there will be another that you will fall in love with.

  14. Carrie Shambo

    ❤❄ My life til now!! Beautiful painting!! It’s brings joy to my heart

  15. Doris Michel

    Now I wish all of us in our fine community a peaceful season. I’m so glad to be here and I hope we’ll have a new year full of fine art and positive energy without disgusting events. Let’s pray for it. Doris

  16. Mary Fran Lloyd

    WOW!!!! What a great way to end the year, Peter. Congratulations on all your auction sales. THANK YOU for sharing your wonderful art with all of us along with your beautiful heart & soul. You deserve every benefit that you reap 🙂 Merry Christmas and continuous success in the New Year!

    • Peter Huntoon

      Thanks so much Mary Fran, much appreciated. As a fellow artist, you know very well the real work it takes to consistently produce your best work.

  17. Rebecca Rimson

    Peter, your painting reminds me of a vintage sepia photograph, in its coloring and its perspective. Thank you once again for sharing your heart and eye.

  18. Karen Piggrem

    Your pictures make feel that I am back in Vermont. Thank you so much.
