Spotlight on Georgie Runkle

Georgie Runkle | Vermont Plein Air Painter Surrounded by her favorite paintings, Georgie works in her studio on the days that just don't lend themselves to plein air. We asked our friend Shane McFalls at Mondo Mediaworks of Brattleboro to film Georgie as part of our video about the artists and furniture makers featured at Vermont Woods Studios.

Vermont's Beloved Plein Air Painter

One of our favorite Vermont artists is Georgie Runkle. Georgie's a plein air painter-- she loves to be outside painting the scenes she comes across that speak to her heart. You may see her along Vermont's rural by-ways painting a covered bridge, an old barn, a general store or a grand old home with rockers on a wrap-around porch.
