Middlebury Falls

How could you not love Middlebury?

It has the best of everything… good people, vibrant downtown, unique shops, fine art, great food.

An artist could wander around here for years and not run out of subjects.

This town grew up around the mighty falls.

And that’s just the way I painted it. (see video below)

Congratulations to Marie Pennington of Rutland, our free print winner for October.

Marie chose Holiday Spirit, and had this to say about Vermont…

“VT is a beautiful and special place. After living just outside of NYC for several years, it was easy to make the decision to live in VT. After just one visit, it felt like home. Now, we’ve been here 30 years! Any time I’ve been away, when I return, that “coming home” feeling returns. The mountains, the lakes, the golf courses, skiing, hiking, winter, spring, summer, fall, you name it, VT is my home. Thank you so much!”

As a small way to say thanks for all your support I draw a new winner every month from my Day in Vermont subscriber list. If you aren’t subscribed yet, Subscribe Today!

      Always good to see old friends (and meet new ones) at Art in the Park. Especially when the weather cooperates like it did so well this weekend. Thanks Sandy!

      And someone will be painting there 30 years from now no doubt. A great subject indeed. Thanks Myra!

    When the news is full of the bad in Vermont,
    your portraits show all the good there is to be
    found in Vermont. The scenes, towns and residents
    are a wonderful reminder of everything that is
    wonderful in our state. Thank you!

      Thanks so much Lynette, I love that my work can remind us of the incredible natural beauty all around us. And it’s all too easy to forget. Gratitude is a choice I try to make daily.

      Sitting there with the sights, smells, and sounds of that powerful water was amazing. I can’t really explain it, but I’m sure thankful we can capture and share the experience through art. Thanks Peggy!

      Part of the fun for me (too) is the suspense of the next painting. I don’t know what next Monday’s painting will be yet…but I am going to start hunting today. Thank you Joanne!

    How dare you! I was fortunate enough to win the Silver Lake auction and now you go and paint this beautiful painting of my home town with waterfall, Middlebury! Your art is becoming my habit, love it!
