Second painting on day one of the US and THEM show I put together featuring 4 out of town artists painting alongside 4 local artists. I showed the out of town guys this view first thing in the morning, then on account of Ken Jarvela painting down on the beach we all went down and joined him, hoping the sun would come out later in the afternoon for this view. We painted well into the afternoon and never saw more than a hint of sun. After the beach sessions we ventured again past this point and up in to the town of Trinidad for some lunch and then returned once again to paint it as it was, sun or no sun. There was a filtered sunlight softly falling, and no complaints were heard. Or maybe they were, but I was up on top of my van and couldn’t make out most of what was being said down below anyway. They kept passing drinks up to me so I think it’s safe to say everyone was enjoying themselves.
