This painting is from the When Space Could Breathe series of landscapes, featuring places in Oregon once populated by ancient civilizations, explorers, trappers and bandits.
Strawberry Lake was formed a thousand years ago when a landslide blocked an alpine valley in the Blue Mountains. The lake now releases excess water through a "whirlpool" that emerges as a creek from beneath the giant rocks.
