Plein air painting at Wednesday Market May 11, 2016





Plein air painting of the tomato lady that sells tomatoes, eggs, and honey at the Farmers Market. You can see her in pink to the left of the painting. She is here every Wednesday and Saturday Market rain or shine.

This Italianesque trefoil design fountain was a gift to the city from Joseph Shemanski in 1926 to thank the city for its kindness to him. Shemanski was a Polish immigrant who went from being a traveling clock salesman to successful businessman. Carl L. Linde designed the cast stone structure that surrounds the bronze sculpture by Oliver Laurence Barrett. Rebecca offered to draw water for Abraham's servant and many camels - possibly as much as a half ton of water. By providence, Rebecca's act of kindness and service revealed her as the bride.
