“As you can see, the picture was painted on a grey, damp, cold morning in Vermont. The good thing about a painting trip is you paint no matter what the weather–even if you’d rather stay at the lodge and have a nice warm bowl of soup. So this is one of those paintings. Vermont, like much of the U.S., is dominated by a rural lifestyle most of us townsfolk often think no longer exists. But it’s everywhere–and it’s the real America!”
