A Day in Vermont

Whaleback Vineyard

The happy vines at Whaleback Vineyard in Poultney, Vermont are slowly starting to come to life after a long winter.

Along with the rest of us.

I love painting on overcast days, in between the raindrops.

We’ve had plenty of them so far this Spring.

Please enjoy the new Video below, along with a personal invitation to Open Studio Weekend!

    Oh Peter! Painting while standing up and with gloves on! What a feat! You are fascinating to watch. Thanks so much for the video. It’s a lovely scene.

    I too enjoy painting on an overcast day. The landscape in such weather displays an added richness in depth and color. I always like your video clips too, especially watching those first bold strokes of the brush come to life, much like watching a butterfly emerge in splendor from its humble chrysalis .

    So very, very, Vermonty. Nothing makes spring any more crisp than red barns.

    This is my first time watching you paint & it was quite fascinating. I am not a painter at all, but I do appreciate watching how you interpreted the scene to your artistic expertise and brought it to life. I will be looking forward to the next one.
