A spring walk in the park is one of my most cherished things to do in the big city. The colors of spring pervade the park as the aroma of the cherry blossoms fill the air around me. Up ahead, I glimpse the Gapstow Bridge, a picturesque scene with swans swimming busily along the stream. As I continue across the bridge and around the park, the sounds of bustling people going about their daily business can be heard. This hardly bothers anyone though as the beautiful sights, sounds, and smells overtake this bustle.
In the distance, I notice horse and carriage rides crowded with people intending to enjoy the fresh spring day with their loved ones. Feelings of warmth overcome me as the sun peeks out from the clouds, greeting the gentle breeze caressing my face. I can only feel blessed to witness such a breathtaking spring day as I continue along the path on my journey through Central Park.
This beautiful scene can only be known as the “Petals of Spring” in Central Park. I invite you to partake in the allure of spring with me as I explore this vibrant palette of colors on canvas. — Robert Finale
