Lake County Landscape was my first steel Dioramic landscape. It has painted steel panels with a wood frame.
From the front This sculpture looks like a traditional landscape
view of Mount Konocti and Clearlake in Lake County. It is actually
a series of panted perforated, expanded and solid sheet panels.
The piece is translucent and in certain lights the layered water
panels resemble sparking waves... especially with a little wind.
It is best viewed in the morning. This picture was taken at about
1 PM. See more pictures at the sculpture page or go to www.slaggirl.com to see the sculpture from different angles.
