Claude Monet was always one of my very favorite painters and this is a tribute to him. I'd like to think that if he were alive today, he might enjoy sitting in his Library and listening to this fountain. Notice the brushwork on the water. It's alive! hope you enjoy.
This is a fountain for either a musician or someone who just truly loves music. It is modern, but with the tiniest trace of formality. The notes on the fountain are the first notes of Cameron harvey's first sonatina, a musical composition in three parts. If you have a son, daughter, husband or wife who loves music...and water, this is a wonderful way to combine the two.
Assuming you want to know the truth here, to achieve all the natural-looking patinas and textures on this fountain, we had to: pound it with a variety of different hammers, run back and forth over it with my kubota, twist it into weird contortions, then untwist it, shoot it repeatedly with special bullets, heat it, quench it, then hit it with strange chemicals. All that work just to get the "look" of something you'd find in a magical copper Mine. Then...when it's all finished we cover it with optical Lexan so that the coloration remains just like the day you bought it. Our little group here is split on whether it's the wall of a Canyon: up-close, or that same Canyon viewed from 40,000 feet. Either way, it's really pretty.
