This piece comes from my series titled 'Mental Landscapes,' which seeks to bring together on a panel what we have created with what might have been present before we came to change the environment.

The city I have painted is Portland. The dolphins were calling to me to tell a story about how they were here and how they have been moved. They are quirky and reminding us that they are fun too; are we sure we want to build cities more than have them around?
