Inspired by a Frame — Self-Portrait with Cats

“Self-Portrait with Cats” — oil on birch panel — framed size 21.5 x 51″ by Margie Guyot

Originally the frame held mirrors. When I saw it at a friend’s garage sale, I envisioned it holding a painting like this. I’m holding my #1 favorite cat, Picasso, while Bernie Sanders (the Siamese on the left) and Mr. Wonderful (on the right) keep their eye on Momcat. I used a plein air field study of my driveway for the background. The frame isn’t in 100% perfect condition, but that’s OK. Who is anymore?


  1. Love it! I feel so privileged to be able to understand the process. This painting will be beautiful in your home – or wherever it ends up. Love the frame too!
