Kowalski lived in the Los Angeles area before falling in love with Lake Nacimiento and moving nearby six years ago.

"The lake is shaped like a dragon, so we use the dragon as a mascot," said Kowalski. "We have the lake and the dragon, so I put the two together."

The mural took about 50 hours to complete.
