    It reminds me of the yellow barn across the street from our house years ago, where my sister and I would help take care of the sheep. I can hear the hooves hitting the wooden floors as they ran through the gate and smell of dusty lanolin in the air. Thanks for sharing your painting of the yellow barn.

    I wish we had wall space for a piece of your art. That’s not an exaggeration…between the art we’ve purchased and the art we inherited we’re entirely out of wall space. But at least I can enjoy your art via your emails. Thank you for sharing!

    I love the rolling hills around this farm! I pass it Every time I go to Wallingford. I never knew the name of it though. You have taken another beautiful Vermont scene and memorialized it with your incredible talent.
    Thank you Peter!!

    Dolly Parton said: ” I compare myself to a good barn. You can have a good barn, and if you paint it, it looks a little better. But if you take the paint off, it’s still a good barn.” That barn rocks with its yellow coat and I’m glad you captured it for us. Happy Memorial Day Peter!

    You captured that beautifully, Peter!! Such a nostalgic subject that conjures up such fond memories. Sadly, these historic barns are becoming dinosaurs. Thanks for sharing!

    You really hit a homerun on this one. Great perspective and wonderful choice of colors. You lead the eye in and then give the mind something to think about once it gets there.

    Your paintings are wonderful tributes to the heaven that is Vermont. “Squire Farm” appears inviting and projects tranquility even though farming is truly hard work.
