The Monrovia Fountain

Last week one of the plein air groups met at Monrovia Library Park.  It's been over two years since I painted there.  I posted that watercolor in Library Park.  I would have painted that piece differently now.  Progress I guess!  At the recent paint-out, our drought here in California was on my mind.  We've had four years of below average rainfall and we'll have to cut way back on water use.  As I was looking around the park, the spectacular turquoise, scalloped fountain caught my eye.  It was turned off and I thought of the drought.  A few minutes later it came on!  I had to give it a try while it's looking impressive.

  1. Sherry, this is splendid! You were so inspired by the water, I can see that. Love this.

  2. I hope you went inside and checked out the WPA mural they pulled out of storage. Of a California bear and painted by a woman.
