Pyramid Lake is “the desert’s answer” to Lake Tahoe”, which is located about fifty miles (80 km) away, and roughly the same size. The lake’s eerie, alkaline/saline water is famous for having few fish – But the ones there tend to be record-breaking monsters! It is a remnant of the vast ancient inland sea which once covered North America’s interior “Great Basin”.
The four-panel work uses harsh browns to color the lake itself (somewhat resembling the gray-brown of the lake’s water), with fiery reds and pinks between each mirrored pair, symbolic of its stark high-altitude desert surroundings. The green spot (as painted) is Anejo Island, the lake’s largest.
