This painting is inspired by the wonderful painting "Joan d'Arc" by Jules Bastien-Lepage, and the pose is closely related to the pose in his picture.  

Going to the beach at dusk seems to tap us into questions of meaning and purpose.  We look out to sea and wonder what we should be doing, with the grand forces going on around and within us, that we may have no control over, or that we might.
