Commissioned by the Crater Lake Institute, this is the second mural I’ve painted of Crater Lake. I think I now have that “blue” figured out. Puzzles, cards and posters coming in summer of 2008 so stay tuned.
If Tyler Street continued downhill into the water, that is.
That’s our own Sea Witch, the 1939 Monk-designed sloop you see so much of in many of my paintings.
Oh, and the best coffee in town is just a block up from the beach here, at, of course, Tyler Street Coffee.
Prints are available of this painting. As of May 2008, this painting is still available for purchase. Email us if you’d like more information. (sorry, it’s sold)
This beach is loosing sand in winter storms. Thought I’d better paint it before it’s completely gone. Point Wilson Light is the dividing line between Puget Sound and the Straits of Juan deFuca – a big deal to boaters. The Indians disliked rounding this point so much they instead opted to drag their huge canoes overland through what is now Port Townsend. But I love it here on this point, with wild waves and kelp beds, sandy beaches (rare for this area) and lots of wildlife. Prints are available, and as of April 2008, so is the original painting.
