A Central Park View


Central Park from Above

Several years ago a friend invited me to house-sit in her amazing high-rise apartment while she was on vacation, suggesting I would be able to take photos of the incredible view at all different times of day and night. Needless to say, I took her up on the offer and have many, many photos of those views. Going through photos recently, I thought this would make for an interesting small painting. Looking north toward Central Park and beyond, playing fields are seen surrounded by dense foliage with the city buildings rising once again from the northernmost border of the park and beyond.

In the years since, a new, super tall skyscraper was constructed across the street, blocking this magnificent view, an occurrence not uncommon in a city constantly tearing down and building up.
