Lanyon for the relative permanence.

I'm really not feeling either of these artists, but I will vote Lanyon.

Peter Lanyon! Color, energy, form, and some of that old St. Ives magic. Better than a walk on a beach.

Amador all the way.

Lanyon's paintings all seem sideways (tilted 90 degrees one way or the other) to me. I'm voting for Amador.

The sand guy takes it, 11 votes to 5, and will move on to an exciting rematch against Tom Cole. Be there or be square.
