Well, I have a real lot to say about this drawing.
I played the guitar in the arches of Central Park for years. There was always some competition among we buskers (park and street performers) for the best spots. One day I was in the very best spot and I saw a guy with an instrument case hanging around (a bad sign). But, I was getting tired. We made a deal - I would split, he'd play for an hour, and I'd come back and play an hour, and so on. It worked out so well that we became allies and friends. We even played duets from time to time.
Alright, I'm a blabbermouth - but it was a very beautiful time there in the park, and I miss it very much, now that I'm retired here in Albuquerque. But the trade-off is, now I have the time to paint and play guitar as much as I want, which are, a real lot.
