chines painting supplies Like the Central Park in NYC, Echo Park is located just north of downtown LA. Echo Lake is well known for the annual Lotus Festival, but this year the lotus flowers are absent there. Facing the empty pond I painted this plein air cityscape with mind image of the beautiful flowers. I hope to see the beautiful lotus flowers here next year.
