At Garden's Edge

On an early morning drive through the city, I observed how the low-angled sunlight on the many fire hydrants created shadows and reflections. This observation posed a challenge for me. I moved the fire hydrant away from the concrete landscape to a garden's edge. A viewer of this painting will have one of two questions. "Why would anyone want to paint a fire hydrant?" or "Where's the dog?"
This 18" by 23 1/2" watercolor was fun to do.
