Plein Air– Pyramid Hill

Old Springhouse
12" x 16", Oil on Canvas

Not one of the sculptures that dot the rolling landscape of Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park, but sculptural in form, this old stone structure has had a presence there since the 1820's. The lower level is a barrel vaulted space, similar to what I've seen in the lagering tunnels of the old breweries of Cincinnati. Set next to a spring, it was ideally placed to take advantage of the available cool waters.
