Maple Crest Barn

Shrewsbury has a special top-of-the-world feel.

You can see for miles and miles from Maple Crest.

The farm has been in the Smith family for many generations.

Luckily for me and my friend Jackson with his video gear, there were no bulls in the lower meadow last week.

Scroll down below for the video!

    Good morning Peter,
    Awesome once again!! You have an uncanny ability to capture the feel and spirit of Vermont whether it is a landscape or streetscape. Your paintings always make me smile and appreciate moving to Vermont 34 years ago today. Thanks so much for sharing it with the world.
    Hi to Mareva!
    All the best,

    Now that was inspiring. Makes one want to get on that “Last train to Clarksville” – I mean next flight to Albany and come right on over! I actually felt the cold wind….. 🙂

    Hi Peter, I always have a little sadness when Alan and I drive home. It seems to get harder to leave every time. Thanks to your paintings, and in particular, this video, You bring us back to Vermont every Monday and Thursday. This is a wonderful painting and sharing your process and thoughts make it all that more interesting. Who knew that rock climbing and bull spotting are in your job description. Many thanks for another great Monday!

      Yes Diane, the life of an artist has lots of hazards and dangers. Bulls, weather, critics, self doubt, and such.

      Thank you Maddy! I think Jackson and I make a good team out there. I just paint and he makes magic out of it.
