rooi rouge

indian maiden (c. 1920s) – unknown artist

i don’t wear red often enough, it always does something for the spirit.

experimenting with my daily painting posts, what do you think?

central park

Neither the cold of winter nor the gloom of the Great Depression kept the children of New York City from enjoying Central Park, the city’s greatest green space. Artist Carl Nelson had almost as much fun as the children, drawing by the hour despite the chill of February 1934. When his hands got cold, Nelson recalled, he “would go to the monkey house in the Central Park Zoo to warm up.”

i usually have a pretty tough time deciding what the daily painting is going to be (so many!) but this blue – i love this blue.
