Rose Garden Fountain

Another very hot summer's day, but it was very nice and cool standing in the shade in the Queens Gardens. One of my basic axioms re plein air painting is to find a nice comfortable spot, and then look around for a suitable subject.
The other method is to find a subject and then find somewhere to stand and paint it that is not entirely intolerable.
Today I was fortunate that the best view of the fountain included a bed of red floribundas and ample shade.
