"Meet Me at the Fountain"-- Buckingham Fountain-Chicago

watercolor 14 x 21

I wanted to paint Buckingham Fountain, Chicago again. This time I wanted to catch the feeling of the water...it is wet (and on a windy day, so are you) and sometimes it is really loud. I should do a painting of this as a night scene since they have colored lights on it. Hummmmm.

Today was a good day. I went to pick up 3 paintings that I had in a show and found out that one of them sold. Yeah! Once I get the check and I know for sure that it is really sold, I will post a photo of it.

I am teaching a class this Saturday at the Chesterton Art Center in Chesterton, Indiana. This week we will be painting delphiniums. It will be a long skinny painting. I am sure there is probably still space available if you are interested in this class....my friends from India...as much as I would love to have you in class, I think it is a 24 hour flight....you better leave now.

I have always been scared of painting fountains like this. Its so difficult to portay the water in fountains. What you have done is simplification of things which has worked. And I am sure that lady is not you. You could not be wearing this on such a sunny and bright day. :)

Do post the picture of the painting you sold. Congarts. :)

And if I leave now I'll not be in time for your class. There is always a next time.

@Prabal...you probably won't see this until you get back. I am sure that you are on a plane right now heading for the United States. Remember, you are 10-1/2 hours ahead of us. lol Should I bake you cake, cookies or brownies? Heck, I will bake them all :)
It is beginning to look like what I want, but not totally. The top fall I thihnk I captured that wind blowing the water. I may try a few little paintings of this. I am in an out door show in July.

@ Rogerio..Glad you like it. Hope you didn't get wet. I do paint with alot of color. Hope all is well.
This is not me in the painting.

Hi Kathy,

And those brownies and cookies eaten :)
Well...there's always a next time!
The fountain painting is very good. Love those figures in the front!

Class went really well today. I will post a photo of the class tomorrow/later today. Brownies are all gone. I will be baking more this week since I am having a party on Friday.
Have a great weekend and upcoming week. Cheers!

I went to Galicia and when I went back to Madrid I see that you are in Chicago yet. Where are your flowers?, you will have your garden abandoned. MPDR. I'll not be able to see your wonderful roses. ¡ Bonita fuente !. I like this fountain!.
I'll be sure you will sell the last two paintings. Congratulations !

Hi Julian...it is about time you got home. I thought you were only going to be gone for 1 week. I have been working in my yard but lately we have been getting so much rain. I think that might be you at this fountain. You colored your hair...MPDR I just finished another Chicago fountain. I will look at it tomorrow to see what it might need and then I will post it.
I think I will do some flowers for you tomorrow then you will not go away. MPDR Time to wash out my brushes. Welcome home.
