Morning Music

The morning that I painted in Central Park, a guitarist and violinist were playing under the arches near Bethesda Fountain. The music was so lovely.
Thanks to a friend in the city, I have some more info on that special place in the park:

"At the southern approach to the Terrace Bridge from the Mall a visitor will see the seven arches of the Arcade, a columned passageway with walls on either side forming a blind arcade adorned with trompe l'oeil paintings. The large ceiling, which is part of the original design of Central Park, was first installed in 1867 and originally contained 16,000 brilliant encaustic tiles, weighing about 50 tons and handcrafted in Stoke-on-Trent, England."
