For me, the Park is a significant source of inspiration, respite and recreation. September's tornado wreaked large amounts of damage in Brooklyn. Particularly hard hit were the plantings and grand old trees in Prospect Park. From now until December 31, 2010, I will donate 10% of sales of the six paintings I have of the Park to the Prospect Park Alliance. For more info about the paintings visit my website. Or, contact me. Three paintings (Autumn Walk, Park Trees Along West Drive, Shady Path) are on view at 7th Avenue Wine and Liquor, 88 7th Ave (betw Union and Berkeley Pl). They have a nice selection of wines and liquors, too!

Finally, we're having June weather and it's a delight. I returned to Clinton Street (I think it's north of Degraw), to this church and its garden. I've been going a bit past mid-day, which means the sun is high and a bit behind the scene. It makes for some fabulous shadows. It was a little slow going yesterday because as soon as I got there clouds kept coming and going. And, I forgot my big floppy hat. So, I had this odd combination of waiting for the sun to come back out and then having to shield my eyes when it did. Here's my set-up:
And here's how the painting looked at the end of the day:
Will have to get back there soon, cross your fingers for more great weather (that's my painter friend and studiomate, Regina!).
