Vermont Vacation

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

I always wanted to spend the fall in Vermont painting the colorful mountains, and this October my wish came true, I spent three weeks at my home in Brandon Vermont.

Fall in Brandon

My home is quite comfortable nestled deep in the woods high on a mountain.  We are not connected to any town supplied power company, our electricity and water  we produce ourselves from generators, a well for water and now we are installing a solar system.

Hiking early in the mornings with the dogs besides me and the ground covered with fallen leaves, this is a perfect way to start a crisp fall day.

Driving locally the mountains are blazing with colors. This is a painters dream! Everywhere I look is a perfect painting, I take lots of reference photos.

The view from my porch is spectacular  every day the lighting on the mountains changes with the weather.

Painting in Vt allows me to express my art in the colors of each beautiful season. Hopefully these photographs will inspire you to
