A Day in Vermont
March 20, 2017


Storm Trooper

The old tractor managed to stay just above the snow line last week.

The warm rusty machinery seemed to play well against the cold fresh powdery snow.

I don’t know if the old girl starts, but she still cuts a fine figure.

Wow. It’s been exactly four years and 251 paintings since we launched A Day in Vermont.

Thank You and Happy Anniversary!

    Happy Anniversary Peter! Thank you for this very special connection to my second home.
    The tractor reminds me of another dear friend who lives in VT.

    Congrats on the success of “A Day in Vermont”. It is always inspiring for me. I am currently in warm weather so the contrast with a snow covered tractor is a treat. Thank you!

    Congratulations, Peter, on another success story! Love the tractor, tho lonely in the midst of the beautiful snow fall….still appears “ready to go”!

    Love old tractors! I expect there’s a lot more “spark” to this painting than there is to the plugs in the engine . Nice color scheme and interesting positive and negative shapes in this weeks rendition.

    Wishing you a VERY Happy Anniversary Peter!
    What a wonderful painting of winter’s last (?) fury and the tractor out standing in her field!

    Our neighbour had once a fire spitting tractor, a “Lanz Bulldog”. It was a great action to start this monster. It made “puff” and “peng” and no wheel was spinning around. For us children it was more interesting as a TV-Show. We always hoped the old “Bulldog” would move. But there was no chance.

    Beautiful tractor. Michael Garland, a children’s author and illustrator, wrote a book about an old tractor called Grandpa’s Tractor. This painting reminded me of the book.

    Congratulations on 4 years, and looking forward to many more of them.

    As long time summer residents of Vermont we love this year round connection. As we sit in 80 degree temps in Texas your detailed water colors during any season fill our hearts. See you soon!!
