A Day in Vermont
September 26, 2016


Waite Hill Farm

Art is one conspiracy theory that I like to believe.

While artwork is often created in solitude, most artists know that inspiration can come from anywhere and anyone.

My co-conspirators here were friends and fellow artists. Kathy Miller pointed me to the scene and Gary Eckhart joined me to paint.

It’s all connected, and so are we.

    A beautiful rendition of what is fast disappearing in America! The farm! Love the ruralness of it all including the dirt road and mailbox! You have really captured a place in my heart. Thank you!

    Bill (Davis) and I thoroughly enjoyed the Rutland Magazine article, and, as always, look forward to your many more pieces of artwork!

    Yes, capture the old Vermont before it disappears. Very nice indeed.

      Thank you Susan, my hope is that there will always be authentic farms in Vermont.

    A perfect early fall day in Vermont! Autumn color just starting to touch the upper reaches of maples, and blue skies and brilliant sun celebrating a glorious season. Careful attention to proper perspective contributes wonderfully to the sense of depth, and likewise honors the distinctive rolling hill country of northern New England farmland. Who would have thought that something as intangible as inspiration could be so beautifully translated and preserved in the hands of an artist!

      Thanks Brian, I pushed the “fallness” a bit here, as the leaves were still quite green, but I could FEEL just a touch of autumn in the air. And once we have a feeling…gotta run with it!

    I am in awe….. so appreciative of your skills, sharing and beauty. Very glad you are presented in the Rutland Magazine; you certainly do brighten corners and everywhere in between. The farm is outstanding! Cynthia

    Just read the piece in the Rutland Magazine and learned a lot about you. What I DIDN’T learn was that amongst your goals for your weekly “Day in Vermont” were spreading both warmth and inspiration to your followers. Why didn’t I learn that? Because it is obvious every single week, whether by your paintings, your memorable quotes, your sincere comments, or all of the above! Thank you, and thank you again! I know I speak for all who receive your Monday mailings.

    • Peter Huntoon

      Thanks again Brian, I guess making that authentic connection with all of you each week has become the main goal. I couldn’t be more pleased.

    I love your paintings. They show me another piece of America. In Europe we often look at the political or social conflicts, we regard Washington, New York, LA and Silicon Valley. But the other, the rural side is not in our minds. And always I agree with the comments of Brian. His descriptions are highlights for me, examples of knowledge in arts. Autumn greetings from Germany

    • Peter Huntoon

      I never thought about that Doris, but it makes sense. I am happy I can shine a positive light on Vermont (and all rural America) through my art work. And yes, Brian has a way with words and obviously knows his stuff when it comes to art. All the best to you!
