The Lake Champlain Bridge is known by several names… “Champlain Bridge”, “Crown Point Bridge”, and depending on which way you’re heading, “Bridge to New York” or Bridge to Vermont.”
An important principle in art is contrast. Light/Dark and Warm/Cool, for example. Here, we have the compelling contrast of the new bridge set atop the lasting remnants of the American Revolution.

And the Winners Are..
Each month I draw two random A Day in Vermont email subscribers to win a free print of their choice.
It’s one small way I can say thank you for your continuing support.
Our first winner for April was Craig Snyder of Sparta, NJ. Craig chose “Poultney Vermont” and had this to say…
“My wife Karen and I would love to own the “Poultney Vermont” print, the main street of Poultney. My family has spent decades of summers visiting and camping throughout the state. When we get to Poultney, we feel like we are in a Norman Rockwell scene. We have loved walking up and down this street every summer for the last 50 years. It always feels like coming home. Thank you for creating the wonderful emotions that you do with your art and your eye!!”
Our second winner was Patricia Kuntz of Ludlow, VT. Patricia chose “Fall Farmscape” and had this to say…
“Hi Peter, I am so excited to have won a picture. I have a few of your prints and love seeing them online. I live in Ludlow and take a lot of courses at Fletcher Farm. My husband and I retired here in 2001 on South Hill in Ludlow. For the last 2 winters we have left Ludlow late October and driven to Reno NV to spend the winter as our son and daughter-in-law and two grandchildren moved to Truckee CA. It is interesting that I take a watercolor art class with an artist called Eva Nichols who lives in Truckee CA and one of my fellow students mentions that she is on your list and would love to win sometime. So far away and you are still popular. We love coming home to Vermont and its wonderful green landscapes after 6 months of “brown” Reno and snowy Truckee. We are both 76 and lived in Westchester country raising our 3 children and owned a ski house in Ludlow.”
