Three Pilings in a Lagoon

Two days ago, I painted at the San Dieguito Lagoon north of San Diego. It was my first time painting away from my home since the COVID numbers exploded last fall. It was great to be out, and I used up a lot of my morning before choosing a scene to paint. Despite the many compelling scenes, these three pilings by the edge of the lagoon captured my attention. I liked the play of their shadows and reflections in the moving water and their contrast with the wedges of land that came in from both sides. I didn’t finish while I was at the lagoon but was able to do so today.
