A Day in Vermont
June 4, 2018


Neshobe Island

Auction Closed. Sold via Buy Now $800. Next auction Monday June 11. 

Driving along the western shore of Lake Bomoseen I pulled over at the “Green Dump.” Avalon Beach and Neshobe Island glimmered like emerald jewels in the distance, promising to hold their pose for the afternoon.

Why argue with fate?

Thank you!

Please accept my sincere thanks for your incredible support during my recovery. I was overwhelmed and humbled by all the emails, calls, cards, well wishes, visits, acts of kindness, and prayers. They worked, as I’m feeling better every day. I now look forward to gradually working my way back to 100% as the summer rolls on.

Also, I want to publicly acknowledge Dr. Peter Hogenkamp, the great folks at RRMC, the Rutland Heart Center, and the University of Vermont Medical Center. Thank you for saving my life.

And the Winners Are…

We have a little catching up to do. Here are two free print winners for May. I’ll draw and announce two more for June soon.

Our first winner is Laurel Landis of Parker, Colorado. Laurel chose “Wilders Our Town”, and had this to say…

“Thank you for the wonderful news! I’m sure you hear this from everyone but I have to say what a difficult choice this is. After going through all of the prints I have settled on “Wilders Our Town.” It takes me back to my childhood, when I was growing up. I lived in a small town, which was just the right size for a young girl to explore, imagine and feel safe. I remember all the little houses and my Congregational  Church very fondly. The colors you have used in this painting are some of my favorites and are so uplifting.  I look forward to receiving A Day In Vermont each week and know after I read your email and see your latest painting I am inspired to get going on my hobby of watercolor painting. Thank you again, not only for your kind offer, but for bringing me such special memories each week.”

Our Second winner is Patricia Berlikij, of Castleton, Vermont. Patricia chose “Cold Snap”, and had this to say…

“I am so pleased to be the Free Print Winner! I choose Cold Snap, it will go to our condo in Florida where we spend our winters. Vermont means home to me, I was born and raised here. It’s beauty never grows old to me, no matter how far I travel. Thank you….I will be watching for the arrival of “Cold Snap.”

    It is so nice to see you back, always loving your Monday morning paintings. Continue to heal and feel well

    So glad you are feeling better. I just love this particular print the best. I started going to Lake Bomoseen when my family started vacationing there when I was 5yrs old. Over 60 years later, I am going back just this month. My family, children and hopefully granddaughter will visit too. It is truly a magical place for me and my sisters and brother. You captured it in your painting. Beautiful.

    We rent a cottage on Bomoseen. Boating around the island in search of eagles is a highlight of our vacation

      Thanks Cynthia! I heard there are eagles there. Hope to see them sometime.

    A cold, wet Monday just brightened up: Peter is back! Like everyone else, I’m very glad you’re better and have a paintbrush back in your hand. That will surely speed up the recovery! Thanks– Gretchen

    warm Tennessee morning!

    So good to receive “A Day In Vermont” because I love it, but mostly at this time, it tells me that you are up and running. Great to have you back and good to hear that you are recovering.
    This painting reminds me of my first vacation to Vermont 40 years ago. I stayed at a house at this lake and I feel in love with Vermont. Ever since, I travel to Vermont every year to vacation.

  10. Beth Ann Rossi

    Prayers work and obviously you have more work to do, too. Glad you are recovering and still enjoying nature and beauty of Vermont. Bravo!

    So glad you are feeling better Peter! Have looked at your prints and do enjoy them. Have not seen anything framed. Could you post what the frame looks like?? Many thanks. Barbara

    • Peter Huntoon

      Thanks Barbara! I will put together a post (and also update my website) to show my current frames for originals and prints. Please stand by a week or two. 🙂

  15. Barbara Sanderson

    So glad you are progressing well Peter. Enjoy your paintings. Wonder if you could post one on the email that is framed. Would like to see what you choose for the framing. Many thanks. Barbara

    Peter, I am soooo glad to hear that you are doing well. Neshobe Island is such a gentle painting. As always, you use colors so beautifully…

  17. Brian Blaine

    First of all, I have to join with all the others in saying I’m so glad you’re recovering well. Do remember to be patient and resist the temptation to undertake too much too soon as you continue to heal. As to this latest painting, it is, indeed, a sparkling gem of beauty, and, I expect, especially well suited to its 10 x 20 format.

  18. michael takac

    Glad your back! Welcome “home.” and best wishes for continued improvement!

  19. carol

  20. robert speiser

    beautiful, so colorful! glad you are back Peter, get well wishes too.

  21. Elizabeth Allen

    I love this painting! I have a similar scene to paint and I am inspired by the color you have unabashedly thrown into the scene. Brilliant.
