Our hiking group went to Spray Park on Mt. Rainier on Thursday, and it was spectacular! Aside from the beautiful views of the mountain, there is a gorgeous alpine meadow and one of the most majestic waterfalls I've seen. I came home with 4 avalanche lilies in my water bottle (I know, you're not supposed to pick them...but is it forgable if you imortalize them in a painting?). I did this one first, and then a composition with just one flower that I'll post tomorrow.
I spent a lot of time today getting set up on ETSY and ZATISTA, 2 sites for purchasing art online. The Zatista site has a 5 day approval period, so I won't be up and running on that for a few days. I posted the same 5 paintings on both so that I can evaluate which site is the most effective. The posted price is $90 plus $10 shipping, but if anybody local wants to buy one, I'm sure I can arrange a "drop".
