Title

Pelham Bay Park #1

Description

This painting displays a park scene using a variety of pastels, dusty colors, and vivid greens. We see a sandy sky and cool-toned trees in the background; the middle ground hosts a hedgerow outlined on the bottom with a vivid row of red flowers. In the foreground, three trees stand in full bloom, with two to the left side framing the wall on the right. The wall has a pot and a sculpture that frame the third tree. A sidewalk cuts in front of this scene.
