Santa Barbara, CA landscape artist Nicole Strasburg says of her original painting, "This was created after spending a year studying the local watershed and the Santa Ynez River, Santa Barbara's water source. Our water source has three man-made reservoirs built to sustain both human population and agriculture. Water is always on our mind as we live in a constant drought, fire and flood cycle. In the summer of 2016 our main reservoir was at one of its lowest levels. Much of the lake bed was exposed, making a dramatic statement about our need for rain." Unframed, oil paint on a cradled birch panel, with hanging wire. Made in USA. Exclusive. 29-1/2"W x 11-1/2"H.
