    Barns are works of art in themselves – I have a wall in my living room filled with barn paintings!

Your studio was bright, airy, and warm. Seeing all your original paintings and prints was almost overwhelming. ou capture the beauty and essence of Vermont perfectly. Thank you for your time, your humor and your painting insights. Until next time……….Be well!

    Peter, watching you turn a blank canvas into a beautiful painting is inspiring. I really enjoy recieving ‘A day in Vermont’ every Monday.

    Still waiting for the sheriff under the maple in Bridgewater.

    Oh Dear Peter.. this painting makes me ache with wonderful memories growing up across from my Grandparents’ farm in New England. October always makes me homesick for days gone by. Thank you!

      Thanks Gail! This one is oil…but it looks like watercolor when I start with a very wet turpentine wash.

    I’m a photographer, but after watching this lovely video I want to at least try painting! Living in the NEK the inspiration is all around all year long. Absolutely love the textures that result from your artistic brush, Peter! Kindest regards, Patti P., Charleston, NEK

    I think this was the best video ever, and truly love the finished product, may have to try to paint something in Alabama. God bless you. You make Mondays special.

    I live in Southern NJ and spent last week in the North East Kingdom at the Danville Restaurant and Inn. The weather was perfect and it was peak foliage season. My two brothers and I saw scenes like this on every back road that we traveled. I didn’t have the time to stop by your studio and never wanted the week to end. The scenery was stunning and I love the hospitality of Vermonters. Your painting takes me back to last week but I especially loved your video with the added views from a drone. Simply Wonderful!

    Dear Mr Huntoon I just wanted to say how much I admire your work. Watercolors have always intrigued me and I’m in awe and amazement of your work. Although I’ve never been to Vermont I’ve always felt a draw to the area like my soul belongs there. I hope to some day make it there.

    • Peter Huntoon

      Thanks Barb! As mentioned above, this one is oil, but I know it looks a lot like watercolor when I start.

  21. Terry Greenwood

    Wow, so beautiful, all of it including the video. I was so fascinated watching you paint & your technique was so interesting! Thank you for doing this video and sharing it! Totally in awe…

    What a beautiful painting which says “VERMONT” I, like you, wish that the month of October was more than a month….maybe two or three before the Winter really starts to step in. Thank you! Susan

    Pete I like this painting ,even more if foreground wasn’t so “plain” maybe more wildflowers going to seed like goldenrods, asters, etc?!

    This painting is of my wife’s grandfather’s farm and is known locally as the Maxwell Farm…it’s no longer active, but the memories linger on. Thank you…we’ve just ordered a print because it has great meaning to us.
