Bremer has launched Web site promoting his work, mostly oil paintings on canvas or panels, depicting wintery landscapes in Vermont, where he has “an old farm house.” He’s also holding an exhibition - his second - in the Vermont town of Grafton this summer.
He said he refined his skills at a school in Glen Echo, Maryland. “I started painting about two years ago,” he said. “It’s something that always interested me.”
Bremer currently does consulting work and serves on a number of boards in the Washington area. He said he’s donating the proceeds from his sales to the Chester and Grafton Historical Societies in Vermont.
