Etsy, and etsy

"Mourning Cloak", oil on canvas panel, 20"x16", 2003. A good story.

I am back to attempting to do selling online. I will be honest and say that I have not given any portal, like eBay or even Etsy a real chance. As I described last night, I am going to post some older pieces here as they are going to Etsy. For sale, of course. But, I am always interested in the road an artist has traveled, and it is very circular in my case. So, here my readers have that chance to see where I have been through my eyes. This piece came from a photograph I took in 1994-95 (I believe). Gil and I were partaking in the last camping of the season. We hiked up to the Zealand Notch Hut, as the snow started to fall. Back at camp, we started a fire around 4 PM, and I kept it going, as the flakes continued, until around 8PM. He gave me a nickname that prevailed for years-“Woman Firestarter”. Years later, I needed subject matter. And, it is bittersweet (Gil passed in 2000), but still a fond memory. Etsy is reopened:dahurst555.
