We traveled to New York City in early December to visit our daughter, who lives very near Central Park. We took her little dog for a walk in the park through the "Strawberry Fields" area (the entrance by the Dakota). It was kind of a misty morning, not too cold for December. I was taken by the light and the way the buildings looked through the atmosphere and thought it would be a fun challenge in watercolor. I looked up the name of the pond, thinking I might name this painting, "____ Pond, Central Park", but the name of the pond is apparently, "The Pond." So THAT was no help!
