Spring in New York

Spring 2012

I don’t know when New York has had  a winter such as the one past.  There was a freaky heavy snow this past Halloween.  I was in town at that time as well.  I found the beauty but was not inconvenienced by it.  Back again, to experience an early full blown sun lit Spring.  I spend many of my days at the museums. Yesterday I saw the Gertrude Stein collection at the Met.  A couple of days ago, I viewed the Diego Rivera exhibit at MOMA.

Since recently taking a class in painting street scenes, I must say that I have been looking at the people, traffic and buildings in New York in quite a different way. After leaving the Met a few days ago, I walked wistfully down 5th Ave.  Central Park was across the street from me  to my right and I sought to hug any strip of shade I could find next to the buildings which flanked me to my left. Suddenly I came upon a courtyard with two cherry trees in bloom.  A high fence  beautiful ornamental wrought iron fence shielded the property from the public.  I stuck my iPhone through the , however to snap a couple of images. An interesting perspective, I thought.  This is the resulting painting.  I like it quite a lot.
