This piece, affectionately titled "Fresh Mountain Air" is an ode to one of my favorite places, Warm Lake, Idaho. 2 summers were spent working at North Shore Lodge and exploring the land after the Cascade Complex of 2009. The trees were torched and the land was barren. Though, the fire morels were epic that first season. Since the untimely loss of the owner of the lodge, it's been difficult to go back, even with everything burgeoning. Remembering a few of the things we love, this image has huckleberry purple, lake and hot springs blue, snow white, and wildflower yellow. I wanted to throw in a pirate flag, but I don't think a skull and crossbones complements an image of happy lung tissue.
