"Crater Lake at Sunset"

Original oil painting "Crater Lake at Sunset" 24x48, Oil and cold wax on Canvas. 


A storm winds up over Crater Lake, fixing for a long nightly battle between high and low pressure air. Preparing themselves for battle, the clouds gather themselves into robust plumes over the mountain. The sunset illuminates their fury in shades of orange, pink and yellow, echoing the ancient, furious explosion of the volcano below them. The wind whips pink reflections over the lake as the rim of the crater turns red in the fierce light of the sun. Still a monstrous, impressive and active force of nature, Crater Lake stands as a monument to what was Mt. Mazama; the force that scalded Eastern Oregon over 7,000 years ago.
