Recently I painted in Carlsbad, CA at the Buena Vista Lagoon. I was visiting the area to seek inspiration for a painting that I wanted to give as a wedding gift. I stumbled upon the Buena Vista Lagoon Foundation and painted the forest of reeds along the hiking path. The loop was blocked due to flooding. Even so, it's a very peaceful place and the staff at the visitor center are very nice and accommodating to painters. The first image includes the reeds and the mirror like reflections in the water. The second image is a detail photo of a windblown section of reeds (also see Sky & Earth). February 5, 2016.
