I painted this on location at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. When I got there I was a little disappointed because the day was overcast, but I started painting anyway. It was absolutely wonderful when the sun broke through the clouds right as I was finishing up, and I was able to add in the effect of the light on the falling water.
