Mt Jefferson Night
Landscape paintings inspired by my 2022 thru hike of the Pacific Crest Trail
Shortly after reaching mile 2,000 while heading northbound you enter the Mt Jefferson Wilderness. This mountain really struck me with its pointed shape and size. It is the second highest peak in Oregon, and from what locals have told me is extremely technical to climb. While I took some time in the area to resupply and rest I always admired it from a distance.
I chose this mountain to paint because of how much it stood out in my mind.
These paintings are larger than what I typically do. I felt the landscapes of the PCT called for something more grand to be done about them. I do plan on painting smaller pieces as well, but those will come later, and depict different scenes. I have had a lot of fun reliving the trail through these the past months since finishing my hike. I hope you enjoy them as well!
