"Waterfall at the UPS Garden" Seattle city oil landscape

There is this wonderful garden with a beautiful water feature right by Pioneer Square in Seattle that was constructed by The United Postal Service for an anniversary, not sure which one...I took a few pictures and notes while Annie and I were out wandering the streets a few weeks ago. Here is the resultant sketch and painting..... sold
After that we went to a great restaurant called Marsalas and had boiled crayfish and beer...=]

I had to enlarge it to check out the details. At first glance, it could be mistaken for a photo. Yet, on closer inspection it has lovely painterly qualities. Who knew UPS made waterfalls, too! This is a very fine work!

Awesome, fantastic design/composition to say your execution and paint handling are exciting is putting it mildly, thank you for sharing.

It looks great seeing the water coming cascading down the rock face.
