The artist shared this with us about this work:

“Using uniquely American, early 20th century watercolor style in concert with a period airbrush technique, Kevin Ruelle creates the Art Deco Vermont Poster that our  nostalgia calls for, but adds the perspective that only a Vermonter could know. Each poster celebrates a facet of the monumental popularity of Vermont’s bucolic reputation.Very sophisticated, yet bold, this is one kind of art you can easily choose for a gift.”

I gave the mounted poster above to a good friend and her husband (who happens to work at Stowe during ski season). Here is what Shaun had to share:

 

 

“This Ski Vermont poster embodies the more non-traditional ski terrain that Vermont has to offer (i.e, either un-groomed all natural terrain that can be found in-bounds or perhaps a backcountry zone accessed by those who prefer to “earn their turns”). As a lifelong Vermont skier I find the setting in the poster to be relatively anonymous in the sense that it does not portray the common ski experience one would find in Vermont; there are no chair lifts, no trail signs, and of course only one set of solo ski tracks. This is not to say the painting is impractical, in fact there is no question many Vermont skiers will be able to relate to this image and immediately be reminded of the swift silent and deep powder days that define a lifestyle.”

Kevin Ruelle has seventeen different posters available in three different sizes. Your print can be purchased framed, unframed, or just matted. It’s also important to know that Vermont Posters are printed using archival quality paper and archival inks to last a lifetime.

As I now sit at my kitchen table writing I look out the window and see our growing apple trees and look forward to the day when I see an orchard, like the one above. September’s harvest is one of my favorite times of year. Kevin’s artwork is beautiful and I look forward to sharing it with my readers!
