The statement for this nature-themed piece by Constance Mallison reveals its background. "In addition to the lush gardens of the city, Santa Monica has made a commitment to conservation through water-wise landscaping and drought tolerant plantings. This piece demonstrates that there is no sacrifice of color and beauty when that is the case."
