A Walk in the Park SOLD (Click here to view results on eBay)



This is my second painting from my trip to New York. I'm still recovering from the five days of trying to keep up with my son Jobey and his friend Matt. We went up and down the island of Manhattan four times, including out to the Statue of Liberty off shore, and up to the the Bronx for a Yankee game.
My favorite location to just hang out has to be Central Park, and in particular, Strawberry Fields that is just across the street from where John Lennon was killed. John loved New York City, and especially Central Park, and the respect the city has shown him is all over the place.

Mick, I wish I had known you were coming to my city! I would have requested to shake your hand in person! So glad to know that you enjoyed your visit.

I became a New Yorker in 1974 while attending School of Visual Arts in Manhattan, and I found that the city itself was also the greatest "life school" for me. I just celebrated my 30th year in my home neighborhood of Park Slope, Brooklyn, another creative spoke in NYC's hub. Looking forward with pleasure to seeing more of your NY paintings.

Hi Mona,
You live in what I think is the center of the world. I never believed it was so diverse and so full of history, and famous places, and all so close that you can get to alot of it in just 3 days.
I thought of emailing ahead to a few friends I had met online through the daily painting groups, but my son was running the schedule, and I didn't want to throw off his plans.
The next trip I take there, I'm going to try to get to the surrounding countryside if possible. That too has many famous locations within a few miles of downtown Manhattan.

Thanks for looking at my work,
Mick

Thanks Mick. One thing you would also enjoy next time if you didn't this go-around, is some of those 50's diners in Chelsea area of Manhattan. Mick-Heavenly!

Hi Mick,
Your New York paintings are terrific, A walk in Central Park captures the very feel of the park. Great depth and wonderful light. My wife and I have sublet a painter friends loft for the last 13 years and there is nothing more fulfilling than painting in the cener of the world. Bravo

Hi Mick, I think it will be a very long time before I get to New york; so I am particularly enjoying your fabulous paintings.
You do urban scenes very well.
