I posted this photo of the fountain at the Chicago Botanic Gardens a few hours ago on Facebook and painter friend Brooke Moyse commented, a coincidence, considering her canvases of painterly gestures of fountains shooting skyward. Three of her paintings posted above.
While we're on the subject of water, check out the online catalog of Martin Reyna's watercolors from the Hogar Collection. They also have a cool show up right now, reviewed on Hyperallergic.
Cool, like Lake Michigan, where I'll be tomorrow, skipping stones.
