Sisters, Oregon

Oil on canvas, 8"x10"

Here is a painting one of the Three Sisters, viewed from Sisters, Oregon. On my drive home from Bend, I stopped to do some painting. The Three Sisters (Faith, Hope, and Charity) are three volcanic peaks of the Volcanic Arc and Cascade Range. Each of these mountains is over 10,000 ft in elevation. According to Wikipedia, there are 15 named glaciers among the Three Sisters.

The weather was perfect and it was heavenly to spend time painting such a spectacular view. This painting needs work, of course, and I'll probably work on it a bit more this evening.

I couldn't capture all Three Sisters in one photo - the area is too vast - but here's a photo of the Sister I was painting:

I love Sisters, Oregon.
