Lake House

"Lake House", 8 x 10 In, Oil, 2020

I was sure the photo I did this painting from--a photo I took--was taken in Italy. But after extensive searching for the original photo, I found that it was taken much closer to home--in Port Angeles, Washington!

I found this description: "Between 1790 and 1792, several Spanish naval expeditions explored the Strait (of Juan de Fuca). Port Angeles, named for the sheltered bay that Captain Francisco Eliza called Puerto de Nuestra SeƱora de Los Angeles, is one of the few names from Spanish maps to survive in Clallam County." This is on the northern part of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State.

Please contact me if you have questions.
