Maxfield Parrish (Premier painter of the Golden Age of Illustration) was a friend of my grandfather Col. Thomas Lull. They lived on opposite sides of the covered bridge that connected Windsor,
Vermont with the area of where Parrish lived and worked. Parrish often came into New Hampshire Windsor for coffee and to gather material for his landscapes of countryside for the annual calendars printed from his paintings. Vermont
Lull Brook Winter
"Lull Brook Winter" takes its inspiration from the brook named after the Lull Family who settled that area. The brook still traverses the bucolic Vermont countryside and I often revisit Lull Brook when I'm back east and It is my hope to do my own (updated) verion of Lull Brook sometime in the near future. Meanwhile I have a lot of other painting to do in anticipation for my next exhibit.
