I spend a lot of time in and around Overton Park. Above are apartments just across Poplar from the park that have been calling me to paint them for a couple of years, and I finally found the right medium.
Below is Brooks, the art museum in the park. I love having a museum I can walk to, and they have a lovely collection of their own as well as getting some great shows. A few years ago they had one of my very favorite Constables in the world, as part of their Edinburgh National Gallery traveling show, and I walked over just to call on it at least weekly while it was in the neighborhood.
Last up is the golf clubhouse, as seen from the Greensward. Merlin and I headed over one nice morning for me to paint and him to nose around and enjoy the hint of fall in the air. Having such a great park just a few blocks away is a huge boost to my quality of life.
