I was wandering slowly along the Winooski River Road near Waterbury when… Instant Internal Artist Dialog: “Oooh, look at that warm-rusty-red man-made structure of stability contrasting against (but in beautiful harmony with) the cool colors and gentle organic chaos of nature. That would be a good painting.”
Occasionally I think about a subject, then go find it. Sometimes I find a subject, then go think about it. My favorites are when I don’t think too much about it at all.

And the Winners Are…
As you may know, each month I draw two random Day in Vermont subscribers to win a free print of their choice.
Congratulations to our first winners for 2019.
Our first winner is R. Lee Evans of New Providence, New Jersey. Lee chose last weeks A Day in Vermont feature, “Dog Days of Winter“, and had this to say…
“My wife and I have spent 35 wonderful summers in Vermont on beautiful Lake St. Catherine in Wells. Along with some dear neighbors, we watched our kids grow up catching frogs, learning to fish, getting up on water skis, hiking the hills, sitting around campfires, and just becoming a part of the beauty of Vermont. Not long ago I discovered Peter Huntoon’s artwork and have been a fan of A Day in Vermont. I love looking at his pictures, and often respond with an appreciative comment. I am thrilled to be winner of a genuine Peter Huntoon print.”
Our second winner is Cathryn McDevitt of Kalispell, Montana. Cathryn chose “Black Cap Caucus” and had this to say…
“I am so delighted! I love the state of Vermont on so many levels. I have admired your work because you have truly captured the feeling of Vermont that I appreciated so much. I had a chance to visit often over a period of ten years. I picked the print called Black Cap Caucus. I do love chickadees.”
