On every hike and in every season, there’s a point where you crest the hill.

Difficult as it is to put down the brush and walk away at the apex of a painting, anything more than just enough is too much.

Thanks to David Friedland for the great reference photo! (taken recently atop Mt. Equinox)

    On every hike I take I like to imagine that I am the first to discover this spot exactly the way it is at that moment of time. No one else has ever seen this amount of clouds, or the exact design of the shadows, or felt the depth of a breeze. It’s a God gift. Today, your lightest blue in the sky was that gift to me wrapped in the peaceful mountainside. Thank you Peter.

    Hi Peter, now August has come and the late flowers are blooming. The light changes to a dizzy, slight dusty form and we can imagine the grasshopper’s music. It’s silent around no motor noises but the insects are busy humming around. A deep breath of summer. Clouds are swimming in the wide sky. Your atmospheric painting depicts all these impressions.

    A chunk of heaven has fallen onto Vermont…or, perhaps, it is the other way around? Do I see angels hiding/resting in the branches/clouds .. respectively? ❤️

    Wow absolutely beautiful job on this one Peter! I love how you captured the light and the sky is just amazing! This is why I love Vermont…any view can become something beautiful!

    I think this is your best painting yet. I touched my soul. Will be ordering a print.

    Wonderful suggestion from David Friedland. Spectacular view and painting! I’m impatient to see the view in person. Until the opportunity presents itself, your painting provides a much appreciated escape.
