The sugar cane was a fixture of Maui for all the years I had visitied. Do you remember the waving fields of 8 foot grasses and you drove away from the airport? Yes, that was the cane. When I finally moved here I understood the love hate relationship due to water requirements and harvesting practices. Finally, the sugar was not profiable enough to continue and the ongoing planting and harvesting stopped. Once cut, the land would lay fallow until the next farm group came in with better practices. I saw the edge of this field and stopped to do a plein air session - deep in the mud, since the marvelous cloud just passed through releasing the life-giving water. I wanted to capture it for history. Hence the name for this painting.
