This is an older piece, and I believe it was my second oil painting. I painted this in a grade 12 Fine Arts course that was specifically focused on painting. The assignment was to make an oil painting in the romantic style.

My reference was a photo from a calendar. I have the original picture, but it doesn't say the location on it. However, it does look like it could possibly be Crater Lake in Oregon, USA (which I visited once and have some nice photos here).

This is one of the few landscapes (and paintings!) I've done, but I think it still holds up pretty well more than 10 years later.

Hope you enjoy even though it's different from my usual.

Medium: oil on canvas board
Dimensions: 16" x 20"
Vintage: late 1999/early 2000 (not sure if I can figure out the specific dates, sorry)

haha. I saw this and was like, "Is she from Oregon?" Crater lake is amazing. I got to cross country ski there once.

Ha ha, yeah, I'm not from Oregon at all. I went to Oregon a few times, but only once to Crater Lake. Probably one of the few places I'd actually want to visit again in the state because the water is just so pretty :)

Glad you liked the painting!
