Collection of Little St. Simons Island

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 recreated as a verdant slough beneath the sunlit boughs of ancient live oaks.

Begun on location but finished primarily in the studio, May 2014. This painting, and its drier companion, Lizard’s Tail, hang in the living room of  LSSI’s Lodge.

The location depicted can be accessed via LSSI’s Old House Trail. (Google Maps: 31.268333, -81.301028)
