"Forest Park"
Oil     12x16
Inspiration and Design:
Forest Park is an urban oasis, and the heart of Saint Louis.  The weather on this morning was mostly clear and very mild for early January.  As usual on weekends, the park was alive with people.  On this day, the Saint Louis Track Club held a race (Frostbite Series).  My goal for this piece was to capture the defining characteristics of Forest Park: patches of forest, expansive open fields for play, and tall medical buildings on the eastern perimeter.
