When I began this painting in situ on February 2, 2014, the island, and indeed the region in general, had finally experienced a wet year after many years of drought. In fact, the winter had been particularly rainy. It was wonderful to see what had been a dry swale for so long (see painting from 2012) recreated as a verdant slough beneath the sunlit boughs of ancient live oaks.
