He illustrated for 'Fortune' and other magazines to supplement his income. In the mid 1930's, he relocated to Stowe, Vermont, where he began to paint landscapes in watercolor of the surrounding countryside and villages. His works were popular with tourists, and he continued to paint in Vermont until his untimely death in 1963. In addition to his watercolor paintings, Blodgett made numerous pencil sketches and drawings.
