Crater Lake Bald Eagle Call

Garment illustration by Janet Tarjan Erl

Crater Lake Bald Eagle Call

Medium: Watercolor, Digital/Photoshop, Image Size: 16”h x 20″w, ©2002.

This design was created as an apparel design for T-shirts. It represented one of the eagle’s calling to its mate.

The immense and beautiful Crater Lake extends to 1,932 feet deep. The now peaceful lake is the remnant of the once 12,000-foot-high Mount Mazama which erupted 7,700 years ago. The cataclysmic eruptions of ash and magma were so immense that the magma chamber emptied and collapsed leaving a huge caldera which later filled with water, thus, creating Crater Lake. Crater Lake is one of Oregon’s greatest treasures. Many animals including our nation’s treasured Bald Eagles (depicted in this artwork) can be seen in the park. At the time we sold these shirts to Crater Lake Company, there had been a pair of Bald Eagles that would nest at the park each summer.

Painted in watercolor, scanned into the computer, floated, graphics, colors, effects, and text were done in Photoshop.

Crater Lake Proud Bald Eagle

This design was created as an apparel design for T-shirts. Our company, Trekker Designs, sold many of these Bald eagle shirts to Crater Lake Company who was the gift shop concessionaire for Crater Lake National Park. I thought this would make an interesting design by having the Bald Eagle with one of the popular views of Wizard Island in the background.

Wizard Island West View

Oil landscape painting Crater Lake NP by Janet Tarjan Erl.

Wizard Island West View

Medium: Oil, Image Size: 16″h x 20″w. 2011.

On the west rim of Crater Lake in Crater Lake National Park you can see this view of Wizard Island. The deep rich blue color of the lake is so inspiring. This is a rugged landscape with steep cliffs of the caldera offset by the rounder shape of the island. The contrast of the snow compliments the rich blues of the lake, but it also gives contour and definition to the steep caldera cliffs. The shadow on the lake in the lower right-hand corner of the painting gives a hint of the presence of the caldera rim.
