A Day in Vermont
July 8, 2019


Island Pond Vermont

Creativity and luck are always welcome allies when it comes to art.

They come in handy when finding a good place to paint, especially in the pouring rain. So it was the day I painted Island Pond.

A covered bay at the old train depot offered both a perfect shelter and view of the town.

Thanks to the nice folks at the Community National Bank for letting me set up shop!

    Sometimes artists don’t always have to put in what’s there. I think leaving out the yellow stripe would have enhanced the scene.

      Funny, that’s my favorite part. An early lesson for most artists is that we must always trust and follow our own personal instincts, come what may.

    You sure do know how to make a rainy day sunny !! Thanx, Peter – I always enjoy your paintings…..

    How lovely to start the week with a peek at Island Pond in the rain. Love the way it glistenes and shimmers and love the memories I have of this sweet place. Thanks, Peter I so appreciate your talent.

    A rainy day at a pittoresk corner. Nicer than the original I would say. But why the electricity comes from wires high above? Since many years there are no wires anymore in towns and villages in Germany, they are hidden in the earth. Cables like my arm Only lonesome buildings and farms

    • Peter Huntoon

      Thanks Doris! I’m just an artist so I don’t know anything about power line options. 🙂

    I continue: Only lonesome buildings an farms get their electricity with wires like yours in Vermont.

    Older town buildings have such nice colors and unique shapes. You got another church steeple in a painting! Unique set up for your art/skill. Cindy

    What a rainy day lacks with the absence of sunshine is often compensated for by richer color tones and wonderful reflections. Nicely done!

    Stunning! We were just in Island Pond this past Saturday for the “July 4th” parade and it rained (downpoured actually); town looked just like this! (I know because I was caught walking through town when the skies opened up! LOL It’s kind of surreal to see a painting and know exactly the place and the feeling. Just beautiful.

    My brother and wife have a home on Main St. In this quaint train depot town. I walk and ride my bike through this scene often. Very Vermont!
