paintings From the Oregon Outback: Strawberry Lake

Strawberry Lake
5 x 7, oil on gessoed hardwood panel

This painting is from the When Space Could Breathe series of landscapes, featuring places in Oregon once populated by ancient civilizations, explorers, trappers and bandits.

Strawberry Lake was formed a thousand years ago when a landslide blocked an alpine valley in the Blue Mountains. The lake now releases excess water through a "whirlpool" that emerges as a creek from beneath the giant rocks.
