Nicole Strasburg's 'Low Lake' painting illustrates the effects of drought in the Santa Barbara watershed.
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.
