William N. Peabody is an artist in communication with places. They speak to him, and a rich dialogue is created in his work. His early connection to places began when, as a child, he followed streams, taught himself to catch trout with his hands, and dreamed in the hills of Vermont. Eventually, this is where he and his wife, Betsy, raised their three sons. It was here that his connection to the earth, and sensitivity to how buildings and structures frame the land, began to inform his painting. His current works introduce the use of the ancient medium of encaustic wax. This body of work comes mostly from photographs taken on location in the New England states and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
