Across from Maintenance

Yesterday was so hot. We went to paint at Inspiration Point in Balboa Park but before we knew it, it was too hot to paint in the sunshine. One by one, we made our way down to a shaded pool across from the maintenance office.

It was a beautiful old reflection pool, surrounded by gnarled cypress trees. Shady and cool, lovely in its greens and blues, it was a perfect place for plein air on a hot day.

The challenge was painting the statue of the nymph in the center of the pool, who looked like a baby playing with water. I ended up with a dreamy young woman. Regardless, it was a treat to be there painting.

    Beautiful! I love the marine blue on the left and the aqua on the right, made my eyes move and I felt the coolness of the fountain. I had never been to Inspiration Pt. in Balboa Park so I looked it up. It’s on the other side near the Veteran’s Museum. Thanks for expanding my world in joyous ways.
