A Day in Vermont
February 22, 2021



Auction Closed. Sold via Buy Now. Next Auction Monday, March 1. 

A classic Farmall waits patiently for the arrival of another Spring.

There’s a lot to admire in an old tractor. I couldn’t tell you what the individual mechanical components and accoutrements are, but each has a specific purpose, and they all work together to get the job done. A beautiful thing.

Synonyms for “patience” include diligence, fortitude, endurance, grit, and perseverance.

That sounds like an old Vermonter to me.

And the Winners Are…

As you may know, each month I draw two random A Day in Vermont email subscribers to win a free print of their choice.

It’s one small way I can say thank you for your amazing support.

Our first winner for February is Deb Kleeman of Sudbury MA. Deb chose “Mt. Philo to Champlain” and had this to say…

“I chose “Mount Philo to Champlain”. It was difficult choosing until I saw this print. Peter, your beautiful Vermont paintings capture Vermont perfectly in all seasons, rural and city life and wildlife. True snapshots of Vermont. Here is the reason for my choice. Two Vermont gals, students at UVM became best college friends. We would pile study material in my Phoenix Red Karmann Ghia Volkswagen then drive to the top of Philo. Sitting on a safe ledge, we would study and soak in this very view, forty five years ago. Thank you for the memories.”


Our second winner is Sally McGarry of Hollis Center, ME. Sally chose “Pawlet Vermont” and had this to say…

Wow! What a wonderful surprise. I would gladly accept the print entitled Pawlet Vermont which features Mach’s Market. I chose this print because I was born and raised in Pawlet and spent many, many happy years there with my family. Mach’s market was the hub of the town and I can remember riding there in a horse and sleigh from our old farmhouse in the winter and swimming in the adjacent mill dam in the summer. I have followed your work for quite some time, and it always invokes a great sense of nostalgia for me. It brings my heart home to my beloved Vermont. Thank you so much for this gift. “

    Memories of my grandparent’s New England farm flashed in my mind. A WONDERUL painting and a perfect name.

    There is someone near me that leaves their 3 red tractors sit out in a field in all weather. I’ve often wondered why they are not in the barn and concluded “abandoned” . You’ve replaced it with “waiting”. Thank you.
