Wikipedia: The mere-exposure effect is a psychological phenomenon by which people tend to develop a preference for things merely because they are familiar with them.

In studies of interpersonal attraction, the more often someone sees a person, the more pleasing and likeable they find that person.

And the Winners Are..
Each month I draw two random A Day in Vermont subscribers to win a free print of their choice.
It’s one small way I can say thank you for your continuing support.
Our first winner for March is Marti Benz of Palm Coast Florida, and Marti had this to say…
“I would like “Sugarbush View” which you posted on March 11th. We lived in South Faytson for many years and that painting brings back many fond memories. I was born and brought up in Burlington so the view of Main Street looking down to Lake Champlain was a very close 2nd choice. While I could no longer live in Vermont, I still love the mountains and the lakes and all of the natural beauty. I look forward to your email every week to see what memories this week’s painting will bring back and which friend I can forward it to for their enjoyment.”
Our second winner for March is Sally Garofano of Rutland, Vermont. Sally chose “Garden Glory” and had this to say…
