I bought my first painting to hang in my room. It is a shot of Prospect Park in Brooklyn. This park was designed by landscape architects Law Olmstead and Calvert Vaux, who also designed Central Park. I have yet to go to Prospect Park! I saw this particular artwork at the Union Square Market and fell in love with it. After searching the Prospect Park website (yes, the park has a website) I found out that it has a forest, the nation's first Audubon center, a zoo, and hosts a performing arts festival each year. I am definitely going to visit the park this weekend while the weather is still nice. For now, I have this beautiful picture above my desk to remind me of nature and new sites to explore.
