Erickson Road

“November Afternoon — Erickson Road” — plein air field study in oil on birch panel 8 x 10″ by Margie Guyot

It wouldn’t surprise any of us if we woke up one of these mornings to find the ground white. It’s late November and the colors are relatively blah-looking. If it wasn’t for the blue sky (a rarity around here) and the distant glimpse of Lake Michigan, this painting would be pretty much monochromatic. Which actually would please at least one person I know. After viewing the colorful still lifes in my studio, she sniffed and told me she prefers “all beige” paintings.

This is on Erickson Road, just off US-31, in between Eastport and Elk Rapids, just north of White’s Farm. After finishing this, I continued south to the Antiques Market in Elk Rapids, where I happened upon this amusing Devil mask. That’s a snake hanging out of his mouth. It’s now hanging at the entrance to my studio. Maybe it’ll keep away Q-Anon and/or the Proud Boys? These days we all can use a good laugh.
