Portfolio > Mazama

Prior to it’s climactic eruption Mount Mazama had a summit height of about 12,000 ft. and was Oregon’s highest peak. The massive volcano erupted violently accompanied by collapse of the entire upper half of the edifice, which subsequently created Crater Lake.

My first glimpse of Crater Lake rendered me speechless. It is stunningly beautiful and the epitome of transformation.

Back in the studio I obsessed over the seismic eruption of Mt. Mazama: the fire, the ash, the loss of life and the 7,700 years of snow and rain which created the 9th deepest lake in the world. Crater Lake, along with my personal history with lightning and fire, is the inspiration of my new abstract paintings.
