Back in December I painted at the Manila Dunes with Andrew Daniel,
Rick Tolley, John Crater and Stock Schlueter. The month was stunningly
beautiful and sunny. We spent many days meeting up and painting the view
we could see across the Arcata bottoms from atop a large dune. I worked on
a larger landscape, but while scouting about for another view, I looked up at
Andrew and Ricks figures set against the sky and saw what I wanted to paint.
