Morning sun ignites fog and lifts it from a hidden river, just behind the first treeline. The trees are softly awakened with the glow. The spartina grass is damp with dew, and the scent perfumes the air with a settling peacefulness.

"This scene is from a real-life place that evokes great emotion. Long before I knew the story of this special location, I knew it felt different than any place I'd been before.

Then I learned what happened there many years ago...

Nestled along Highway 17 between Beaufort and Charleston, this is the place where Harriet Tubman led over 700 enslaved people to freedom during the largest raid to take place in the Civil War. She orchestrated an extremely complicated and heroic effort to bring men, women and children of the surrounding plantations to their new lives as freed individuals.

Harriet Tubman is best known for the Underground Railroad, but in my opinion, the Combahee River Raid of 1863 rivals that accomplishment. Harriet Tubman was prominent in Beaufort, and you can truly feel the spirit and energy in this humbling place.

When driving through, the marsh stretches out in front of you, unhindered and seemingly endless. The paths along the marsh are perfectly perpendicular, signifying the long-gone rice fields that former enslaved people dug. During the spring and summer, alligators dot the waters and drivers beware of them crossing the road. If you happen to have the great opportunity of seeing this place in person, make sure to pull over the boat landing to take it all in. If you don't have time to stop, roll down your windows as you pass through. Let the smell, history and perseverant spirit of this place whisk you to another time.

THIS place is one of my very favorites on this planet. If you're ever lucky enough to visit, I'll personally point you in the direction. It's a place that everyone should know about...

So of course I had to paint it."

"I painted this in memory of my disabled senior pup, whom we had to say goodbye to recently. I painted this to represent Heaven, where I know she is prancing through this grass, wheel-chair free.

I hope you feel peace when you look at it, and think fondly of memories of a loved one who is no longer earthside. I hope you can feel the peace I felt while I painted this ethereal, serene scene.

It took quite a few layers over the course of two weeks to complete this painting. All together, it was around 11 layers to build up the colors, shadows and highlights. The trees have texture and magical, tiny details of whimsical branches. The grass is composed of the most layers and features thousands of blades, that still somehow don't compete with the sky.

Composition-wise, this piece is one I'm most proud of. I love the bright spots in the grass balanced with the contrast of the shadows and how everything seems to be moving from the left and sweeping to the right. It feels like an antique painting to me."

DETAILS

-Limited edition of only 50 prints.

-Signed and numbered by the artist, Kayla DeVito. Comes with a card of authenticity.

-Printed in the USA using the highest museum quality thick, archival, lightly textured fine art paper.

-To ensure no part of the painting is cut off, sizes will not be standard framing sizes, and will instead be sized upon the exact ratio of the original.

-The size choice is the print size. Each has an additional 1/2 inch border allowance for the perfect matting.

-Colors and exposure may vary from monitor to monitor. These prints have been tested and edited and reprinted numerous times each to get the exact coloring, from screen to physical item. Please know that each print will align as closely to the original painting as we could physically manage, no matter the difference in monitors. 

OPTIONAL MATTING

To save time (and money), you can choose to have your print matted before delivery. Our mat windows are completely custom-sized for each print, and the outer frame dimensions are cut for a standard frame size. This means that you will not need to have your print professionally framed if you don't want to! You can absolutely do it yourself by purchasing any standard sized frame with the dimensions given. These frames are commercially available at most home goods stores, pre-made at frame shops and found readily available in numerous online shops.

We have chosen the matting color(s) that best compliment each print. Please see photos on this listing for your choice.

 

Mat Color Options:

•Off White

•Raven
