Painting: The Cypress Swamp

article's image

In May of 2014, we traveled the Natchez Trace Parkway and, on the way back from an art show in Natchez, Missouri, we stopped at the Cypress Swamp for a photo and a small break from driving. I just finished this oil painting of the photo I took. As a Coast To Coast AM fan and a Streamlink member, I listen to the podcasts while painting. So what is a swamp without a Swamp Ape? I added one ... can you find him lurking in the Cypress Trees? Also I use phosphorescent gel and when you turn out the light at night the eyes glow as well as the moon and stars.
