Greywacke Ballet (Central Park Scene 1)

Greywacke Ballet
18 x 24
Oil on Stretched Canvas
I spent 26 years in Central Park playing the classical guitar; much of it, here in this arch. The Greywacke Arch - so named, for the eponymous sandstone upon which it stands. That's the grey stone behind the dancers. Greywacke.

Jeez, if I had known I had this painting talent, I could have wasted my life trying to make it as an artist, instead of wasting it trying to make it as a classical guitarist.

This is quite good. Very interesting setting (ballerina’s and bricks), quite imaginative. Your pavement is outstanding. Don’t give up if you enjoy it. That’s the most important thing - enjoying along with struggling.

Re: Greywacke Ballet (Central Park Scene 1)

thank you.
and as I spent 26 years there and vicinity - I have many great pics that I can paint. That's why it says Scene 1. I'm already working on Scenes 2 and 3. I don't know where it will end but I think double digits would be a safe bet.

Looks like time well wasted. (To borrow a phrase.)

Thanks Kev.
Love it. Got to reborrow the phrase. Work it into my routine somewhere.
