"Barnes Park - 2/08/10" -- plein air field study -- 11x14" on canvas board -- Margie Guyot

It was one of those rare sunny days here in NW Michigan, so I wanted to go down to the little park south of my house and paint the ice pileup on Lake Michigan. I was dressed warmly -- it was only about 20 degrees -- but my poor face got SO chapped! The wind was whipping off the lake, making it fairly miserable to work. But I loved this scene!

Having grown up in Iowa, I never saw scenes like this. Lake Michigan is only 1/2 mile from my house and I never tire of looking at it, in all seasons.

Notice the icebergs in the distance?
