We spent a warm fall afternoon with landscape painter, Eric Tobin, on a colorful backroad in Johnson where he was capturing a classic country scene on canvas. A lifelong lover of art, Eric has been painting full-time for the past 18 years. He has shown at galleries around New England and he is passionate about capturing the old barns and rural countryside of his native state.
Eva first met Eric last winter when a large group of landscape painters converged in Jeffersonville. The area has attracted outdoor painters for more than a century and their work is often displayed in local galleries. On this visit, we also explored Eric's studio at his home in Johnson and did some leaf peeping on dirt roads.
You can see Eric's work on display at the Green Mountain Fine Art Gallery in Stowe and at Visions Of Vermont Gallery and the Bryan Memorial Gallery in Jeffersonville. And you can follow Eric on instagram @tobinart2.
