Sometimes doing nothing is the best course of action.
That’s my preferred approach when it comes to yard work.
My wife has been after me all summer to trim the birch tree branches overhanging along our driveway.
Well it’s a good thing I waited.
My friend Daniel (video) and I were looking for a good subject to paint close to home last week.
Those beautiful birches were there when I needed them most.
And they’ll still be waiting for me in the spring.
Enjoy the new video below!

And Just A Few Announcements…
You are cordially invited to join me at the Chaffee Art Gallery in Downtown Rutland this Friday, Nov 14, at 6:00 PM for a free painting demonstration.
I don’t know what I’ll be painting yet so it will be a surprise for both of us.
Wine and light refreshments will be available. While you are there, enjoy the ongoing “Oil and Water” exhibit featuring the work of my wife Mareva Millarc along with a few of mine.
Buy Now Button
You may notice something new on this auction… a “Buy Now” option.
Several friends have suggested this option and I’m going to give it a go.
You can use the Buy Now option when a new painting really speaks to you, you simply must have it NOW, and you are willing to pay full price.
If someone does purchase the current painting using the Buy Now option, the auction will simply close until the next one begins.
All creative endeavors require an open mind, risk, and change. Let’s give this a try.
Please note there may be a week or two between now and Christmas that I miss A Day in Vermont post.
I’ll be here to ready serve you, with gratitude for considering my artwork this holiday season.
My studio and gallery are open by appointment here in Middletown Springs. Just call or email ahead to schedule an visit. 802-235-2328. All my prints are available here too, and framing can be done while you wait.
Thank you so much for your incredible support, now and throughout the year!
And the winner is…
Our Free Print winner for the month of November is Mary Grennen of Massapequa, New York.
Mary chose “East Wallingford, and had this to say about Vermont…
“Vermont has been our home-away-from-home, our retreat, for over thirty years. At first, our family came for the skiing, but it didn’t take us long to realize that all four seasons are to be cherished in Vermont. We have so many happy memories of times spent in the Green Mountains with our four children and four grandchildren. Much to our delight, they have come to love Vermont as much as we. Each time we drive north on I-91 and cross into Vermont, we immediately feel a positive change in the climate, the tranquility of the mountains, and the friendliness of the people.”
