"Poás Crater Lake"

About This Piece:

This impressionistic piece is based a view of the Poás Crater Lake at the top of the Poás Volcano in Costa Rica. It is oil on a panel. This striking view was one of many beautiful scenes we enjoyed during a visit to Costa Rica. The Poás Volcano, is an active 2,708-meter stratovolcano in central Costa Rica and is located within Poás Volcano National Park. It has erupted 40 times since 1828, including April, 2017 when visitors and residents were evacuated.
