Swamp Pastel from 1974

April 8, 2010

Above is a pastel of a swamp scene created by Monte from 1974.

Because of the date of the illustration and the content of the depicted scene, it is clear this creation was inspired by trips to the Black River Swamp Preserve in South Carolina during the 1970’s.   During this period, Monte’s brother, Larry, took Monte and others for trips to this preserve in Larry’s hand-crafted “swamp boats.”

Monte’s thoughts and vivid descriptions on these trips are known through written journals.
