Watercolor landscape and Sandhill Crain painting by Janet Tarjan Erl.

Golden Marsh Cranes

Medium: Oil, Image Size: 16″h x 24″w, 2012.

This painting is of the marsh at Sparks Lake near Sisters Wilderness area west of Bend, Oregon. It was a crisp autumn day when I saw this beautiful marsh scene. Since this lake is near Crane Prairie Reservoir, and since cranes are common to this area, I included the Sandhill Cranes as a compliment to the scene. The stump, the diagonal flow, and the cranes make a nice composition.
