Hutty captures a moment of warmth and community against the backdrop of a night draped in the mystery of the Lowcountry. In this vibrant painting, the glowing campfire illuminates faces and figures gathered in a circle, their features painted with strokes of color that suggest both the flickering light and the intimate bonds of those sharing the space. The hanging Spanish moss adds a haunting beauty to the scene, enhancing the sense of place and the deep connection to the Southern landscape.
