LAKE MOTHER

LAKE MOTHER by Kristen Schwartz

Many cultures have stories of mysterious ladies that live in lakes. Lake Mother watches over Lake of the Sky or Lake Tahoe as most people know it. The illustration was finished the day that the Angora Fire reached 100% containment on July 2, 2007. No lives were lost in this devastating fire that took 254 homes. For days the strong winds that were predicted failed to come.


The original illustration is 7.25"x8.75" and was created in airbrushed acrylic, pen and ink, and colored pencil.
The poem on the back of the notecards for this image is:

She watches,
Heart full of joy.
Winds blow.
She calms them.
Danger passes.
Life goes on...
She watches,
Heart full of joy.
Water rises.
She holds it back.
Danger passes.
Life goes on...
