Excerpt from his Artist Statement:
Home is where the heart is. Community spirit and authenticity motivate my work. I am ceaselessly inspired by Vermont’s integrity, diversity, and capricious nature. Capturing her subtle and sensational beauty in rich juicy paint is like roping the wind, brilliantly impossible. Her mysterious moods and change of seasons lead me on!
The Sparkle Barn echoes Peter’s love of community, and invites the public to come and enjoy this free
