The dry season is nearing its end in the Yucatan peninsula. It has not rained in more than a month, causing the vegetation to suffer. Trees, shrubs and ground covers look beaten, dried out. Yellow tones prevail over vibrant greens. Yet a number of plants manage to produce abundant quantities of fruits and flowers in this difficult time.

Yellow is a prominent color in my paintbox. I usually keep a handful of varieties in ready supply and use them generously, as in these small sketches of 8" X 11", oil on canvas mounted on board.
