Crater Lake Overlook

Since April 2020 I have posted on Facebook a painting each day as a brief diversion from the lockdowns and other bad news this year. Neglecting my weblog, I’ll post in the coming days some of my better posts.

From the “Studio Gaol” we go to southern Oregon, and Crater Lake. With a depth of 1,943 feet, Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United States, and one of the most beautiful. Surrounded by cliffs, the lake is fed entirely by rain and snow and considered to be the cleanest and clearest large body of water in the world.

Most of my family roots are in southern Oregon, which makes this area especially special.
