Three Sisters Meadow
Landscape paintings inspired by my 2022 thru hike of the Pacific Crest Trail
Hiking into northern Oregon to be greeted by mountains like this. The winding trail around lakes and ponds was certainly special, but this view of the South Sister absolutely caught my eye. I walked off into the night with the fading light cresting the peaks of the three mountains. Into lava fields, open meadows, snow dappling the ground. This was one of my more memorable sights of the entire trail.
The Three Sisters are volcanos just west of Bend Oregon along the crest of the Cascade Range. South, Middle, and North Sister are all very prominent along the skyline and can be seen from quite far away. After my hike I actually came back to town for the sole purpose of hiking to the top of South Sister with a friend. Just as memorable to see the mountains from the top, as it was from the bottom.
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!
