Michele Melcher’s Oakbourne Water Tower Watercolor

You may have seen me gushing about the fantastic, amazing, and improbable Oakbourne Park before. Not to mention the colorful characters that can be found there.

When the Friends of Oakbourne group asked if I would be willing to make them a website, I said “absolutely, yes of course”, and I immediately commissioned Michele Melcher to do a watercolor of the water tower to use as the “hero” image.

And here it is! Oh, how I love it! From the moss-stained shingles to the flared crosspieces at the top, to the tiny garden gnome that Michele added at the bottom. Click through to see the notes I added on Flickr:
