WHITE CITY PARK By Cecelia Lyden
acrylic on canvasboard
White City Park is another lovely, public park filled with beautiful birds, turtles,and fish. The lake is covered with flowering lily pads and there are many trees with blossoms-the bottlebrush tree with bright red flowers and the orchid tree with lavendar flowers. I took many pictures, and settled in front of these tall grasses and lanky palm trees. I painted there for over three hours-warm but not humid, no bugs- pure, white ibuses walking right past me-peaceful, serene- a wonderful, gratifying plein air experience.
