"Riding Through Central Park"
8"x6" oil on canvas panel
The inspiration for this painting came from our carriage ride through Central Park. I have been painting so many city sidewalks and buildings for this 30 day challenge and this was a nice diversion to add a splash of nature into the mix.
I think this painting shows the much needed balance of the hardscapes and steel structures against the calming forces of nature. As I have said before, New York City is blessed to have so many welcoming green spaces scattered throughout this vibrant city that provide a welcome respite for all to take advantage of.
