This Week join your #WhaTheArt host Tim Longwell of Longwell Art Studios as he welcomes fellow Artist and Midweek Zap Host +Zara Altair  owner of Actation NOW as we discuss what +Zara Altair  would like painted and what makes it a painting she wants to cherish, and why she cherishes the subject.

A little about +Zara Altair :
Moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2013 and felt like I was home. I’m out on my porch every day–sun, rain, snow–to watch the wildlife around me. Get buzzed by the hummingbirds. The robin gives me a low fly-by greeting. Hawks and the occasional eagle soar overhead. I live in a Nature Channel.

Two Main Coon cats. The Boys: Zorzi and Tidy Two Tone–the Inspector and the Supervisor.
