The old brick water tower which stands above Eden Park is now a National Historic Landmark. The 172-foot-high brick water tower was built in 1894, and continued to be used until 1912. The tower is now a communications facility for the city.
Designed by Samuel Hannaford & Sons in the Romanesque Revival style, the structure consists of a cylindrical water tank and an adjoining taller octagonal turret.

I started working on my third painting in the Cincinnati Structural Series. This old water tower is just as beautiful today as it was when it was originally built. I love the angles to the turret and the overall shape. Light reflects and refracts off of it in really neat ways.
I hope you will stop back tomorrow and see how this painting is coming along.
Enjoy Life Now...
