Question Oil Light

I have a 2003 Cruiser with 87000 miles on it.
A couple of weeks ago I had the oil changed, so it has plenty of oil.

On Tuesday I took my car to my mechanic due to the "check engine light" being on. It was an incorrect purge in the evap system.

As soon as I left his garage, the oil light came on. I pulled over and turned the car off. I restarted it and the oil light didn't come on and it hasn't come on since. This is the only time the oil light has ever come on as long as I have owned the car. Is this cause for concern?
