Aspen Splendor

Watercolor landscape painting with autumn aspens by Janet Tarjan Erl.

Aspen Splendor

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 7.5”h x 7.5”w, 2015.

Autumn in the mountain valleys of Klamath County is beautiful. The aspen trees are flaming gold or orange and contrast artistically against the green and blue mountains and hills in the background. This location was south and west of Fort Klamath near the west side of the Klamath Valley. It made a splendid scene for another aspen painting.

Rocky Point Meadow Elk

Medium: Oil, Image Size: 12″h x 16″w, 2008.

Rocky Point, Oregon was an inspiring place to live, especially in the autumn when the aspen changed color in the big meadow beneath Pelican Butte. Though I never witnessed elk in this meadow, I certainly encountered them elsewhere in the area, so I created this painting as I imagined they used to be before white man settled the area.

Junco in Autumn Colors

Junco In Autumn Colors

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 12″h x 16″w, 1988.

I painted this scene of a Dark-eyed Junco perched peacefully on a branch that was nearly barren of its leaves. I saw this Junco on a gray day in winter. The tattered leaves and twisted branches made an interesting setting for the bird.

Autumn Meadow

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 12”h x 16”w, 2005.

This painting was done on location on the Tomahawk Trail in Rocky Point, Oregon. This is one of the spots along the trail that overlooks the Rocky Point Meadow in Klamath County. I did this painting while I was doing cancer treatments each day. At times I got a bit queasy, but being out there was very enjoyable.

Autumn Hillside – Horses

Watercolor painting of horses in autumn by Janet Tarjan Erl.

Autumn Hillside-Horses

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 11.5”h x 17”w, 1992.

There is a hill on the east side of Yreka, California that I frequently hiked. I always enjoyed the golden, rolling hills that were punctuated with oak trees. It especially impressive during autumn when the oaks were rich in fall colors. The view looks over the Shasta Valley. I painted the horses in the setting to give an accent.
