In the Swamp — with the Cat

“Sunny Day, Early Spring – The Swamp” — plein air field study in oil on birch panel 8 x 16: by Margie Guyot

I’m a swamp person. Definitely not a desert person. I love muck and moisture. Humidity enough to curl your hair. Lucky me: there’s a swamp and a creek in back of my studio. I love going back there to paint! Today was our first gorgeous day of the year and I just had to go back there and paint. Picasso, my devoted cat, hung by me the whole time, giving moral support in exchange for tummy rubs.

Just try to get a cat to look up for a photo!
That’s my studio in the distance. It was one glorious day! I had on longjohns and a heavy wool sweater and goosedown coat. Had to go in the house and change clothes. Still a few mounds of melting snowdrifts…..
