Four Corners of a Red Lake
Seeing the effects of the five year drought on Lake Shasta, California's largest reservoir influenced me enough to go to the studio and try to paint something abstract with environmental impact. Fish fin shapes mingle with concentric rings of red clay. Teal blues surround exposed rock once covered by water. Trickles of water share space with algae and reeds of crackling, dry grass. They all rotate in disorder around the canvas. El Nino has helped to fill Lake Shasta the past few months but we are still in need of more rain and snow in the Sierras to get water levels back to normal.
