Cool Water

8" x 10" original oil painted en plein air on canvas covered hardboard -
The fountain is on the Brenau College Campus in Gainesville, GA. This painting was done during a 'paint-out' sponsored by the Quinlan Visual Arts Center and will be used as reference for a larger work, probably 16"x20", to be done sometime when I get caught up.

Nice waterworks a la plein air.

Thanks! There was so much architecture around, but I just loved this fountain. I want to do a bigger version later.

The fountain looks great BJ! It will make a nice bigger one.

Thanks, Lori! There was a dance recital on the campus and all the little ballerinas would swarm the fountain, bottoms up, in their little tu-tu's, looking like little pink and blue flowers surrounding the water. Just precious! I may include some of them in my larger painting.

ooooo yes, do the ballerinas, they would be like water lilies!
