|"Mount Rainier from Grand Park" 6x12 oil on panel SOLD|
Lets continue this adventure......From our camp ground at Silver Springs we left in the morning to follow FSR 73 to the Elinor Lake trail head......after a detour all the way around the lake...looking for the trail to Grand Park( sheesh!) we headed up to one of the most beautiful vistas I have seen in Washington...I'll let some of the pictures tell the story although the majesty of this place can only be felt fully by standing there yourself!
|Mount Rainier in all her glory|
As we got higher the forest thinned out and we entered huge meadows filled with wild flowers and butterflies....with the mountain as the main attraction
|set up to paint the mountain|
I was anxious to get started and set up as soon as I found a good spot with the trail leading into the scene and some alpine firs framing the composition.
|The perfect artists wife content to read or nap while I am painting|
So glad I was able to take my wife Ann on this trip ...She loves to hike and is my biggest fan!! Never complaining when I pull off to get a painting.
