This is the 3rd attempt at painting this view.... I did a sketch while camping in the little cove in Glacier Bay about 10 years ago and later from photos taken in early morning light.... there was smoke from forest fires in Canada at the time. This one, done last week, is only about 6 by 6 inches.... I'd like to do a larger one. I don't know who Mary was and its not an official name, but that is what at least some people call it..... between Ptarmigan Creek and Lamplugh Glacier.... my friends and I hiked to above the face of Lamplugh from here.

Hi Carole, thanks for visiting my blog and commenting and giving me a chance to find TWO more blogs to follow!
This is a beautiful painting. I'm just learning to use watercolor and am awed by how easy you make it look! It's a perfect little gem. Nice work!

Thank you, Debbie. Your paintings of mushrooms look like you've been doing them for years.

Well, thank you! I'll try to remember that the next time I'm feeling utter despair at my inability to get the paints to do what they're meant to do!
