This is based on No. 169 from 2011. I had painted that one in Seaside while we were there and always really liked the feel of it. After doing a few of the Egan’s Creek ones I realized I could go back to any of the ones I’ve done to revisit them and try to learn more.
I can still remember walking around the corner and seeing this guy in the light. The back corner of Seaside is really quiet and it was just me and the gazebo that morning. Fun to go back and revisit it.
