El Nino, Weather`s Puppeteer

I live near San Diego, California where eight years of drought have left our landscape dry and prone to wildfires. I was ecstatic when the weather pattern El Niño was predicted for the winter of 2015-2016 because it normally brings us rain. However, only a few early rainstorms came, and by the end of winter, the land was more parched than ever. In this piece, El Niño became a capricious puppeteer, with arbitrary power over rain and sunlight. Panels of orange and blue represent fire and flood—the extremes El Niño can bring.
