A small sign off to the side of the mural read, in part: "Anthony Padilla. Solar Compass, 2013, Pence Gallery Sponsor." Below those words was a, "In Memory of Martha Ann Richardson." And finally a list of other names.

The "Solar Compass" mural was painted on one of two back walls of the Pence Gallery in downtown Davis, California. The mural extended to a power post set just off from the wall. A small statue stood in front of the mural.

A California poppy had been pulled, roots and all, from the ground. A circle of grass surrounded that stem, and two tiny people lounged on the lawn.

A large bee clung to the wall just to one side of flowing honey. To the left of the bee was the tiny sign describing this mural.
