Frank Howard is a living Vermont painter from Shaftsbury.
His early work - such as this one -- is especially good.
There is little of it left on the market.
Howard graduated from high school in Bennington in 1942.
He studied briefly at art school, then came home to work
on his family farm (it was war time), where he has stayed
ever since. He also participated in painting workshops
that were held in the summer in Pownal, and a good
deal of his early work is from this area.
