This painting was inspired by the bird sanctuary on the Laguna Madre side of Padre Island National Seashore where Vanessa Lacy spent a month painting in her RV. This painting has a mate "Feathery Friends" that depicts the tumultuous waves of the gulf side of the island, Bird Island Basin is shallow and calm in comparison. Vanessa loved splitting her time between the two sides of the island where she could park on the beach, bird watch, and fall asleep or paint to the sound of the waves.
