Deborah Holmes is no stranger to Addison County. If you weren’t her neighbor in Weybridge or Shoreham, you might still know her from her watercolor paintings. Holmes has been painting the Vermont scene for the past 25 years.

The film is being screened at the Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival, Aug. 24-27.
