Scavenger Hunt- #7-fountain and #2- elk statue
Saturday was a great day to be out drawing. The Ira Keller Fountain (designed by Lawrence Halprin & Associates in the 1970's) is a favorite site to visit but this is the first time I have come to draw it. I love the massiveness of the structure and the water...so much water (13,000 gallons a minute). It makes such a noise that it completely blocks out the street traffic. In one of my landscape design books it says that Halprin's design intent was to create an "experiential equivalent of nature".
