A Day in Vermont
July 20, 2015


Plymouth Notch

Calvin Coolidge was born in Plymouth Notch on July 4, 1872.

Mr. Coolidge earned a reputation as a man of integrity and decisive action, who said little, with a good sense of humor. In other words, a typical Vermonter.

Thanks to everyone who joined me for this On the Spot adventure at The President Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site.

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”    Calvin Coolidge

    Oh! the joy of watching the reds fly and drip, the blacks in blocks, and the final cheerful outcome all while you are smiling and truly enjoying what you are doing…so happy to know you and your work.

    This is one of two prints I purchased last summer while visiting your studio. It was a pleasure to chat with you and see where you live and work. I was born and raised in Rutland, Vermont and moved away in the mid 90’s. Plymouth Union holds a very special place in my heart. I have visited often and photographed it and the surrounding area many times over the years. It’s so nice to be able to catch a video of you creating this wonderful painting.
