Story Behind the Painting

This painting titled "Public Park" and is a tribute to probably the most magnificent public park in the United States, Central Park. Amid the backdrop of extremely expensive Park Avenue apartments, I love that anyone and everyone can stroll through and appreciate the great city of New York and am a huge fan of communal public open space. Conversely, I have great disdain for the pretentious "McMansion" secluded gated faux community concept infecting Chicago, LA, NY and other American city suburbs for people who neither appreciate art/aesthetics nor have any sense of place/heritage.

I love that besides equal opportunity enjoyment, Central Park promotes both fitness and romance. I truly hope the horse drawn carriages will survive (of course with every humane and ethical equine safety provision).
