I love this peaceful, serene fountain at the entrance to the Seiwa En garden in the Missouri Botanical Garden here in St Louis. In late summer, my husband and I spent a day here while I painted this in plein air in soft pastels. It was a breezy, partly cloudy day. That made it somewhat of a challenge to paint this, since I started out with a sunny day, but it was overcast at the end of my painting sessions. I will never get tired of the beauty of this place. This is a very quiet and subtle fountain, with a tiny stream of water that gently runs through the bamboo cane and drips into the basin. Here is the listing in my store.
My husband had a day off work, and we had the privilege to spend the day at the Missouri Botanical Garden on a beautiful balmy and sunny September Day. We sat on a bench in the shade, and I painted this sunny, splashy fountain with soft pastels. I like how the sun dappled the water and the surrounding patio. I also love the sun dappling on the water of the fountain itself, as well as the droplets of water surrounding the water spurts.
